Organizing my fabric is listed as one of the items on the "2009 To Do List" on the side bar and I've been working diligently on this. The only thing is that in order to organize the fabric, I had to organize the sewing room. I still have a lot fabric scraps to organize, but wanted to show pictures of the changes I've made so far.
This is my main sewing area.
A close up of a thread organizer hung on the wall to the left of my sewing machine. Its so much more convenient to change thread without rummaging through a box or bag.
This is an updated picture of the shelves with folded fabric on them. I only folded pieces that were at least 1/2 yard here. I'll be adding more as I go through more bags of fabric and scraps.
Here is another storage area, but I haven't finished working on it. The plastic drawers hold different sizes strips, projects in progress and five inch charm squares.
These two drawers hold 2 1/2 inch strips. One drawer is for light colors and the other drawer is for dark colors.
KEEPING IT REAL!
This picture shows a large box of scraps to be ironed and organized, a bag of clothing to be repurposed as fabric and a stack of long pieces of fabric to be rotary cut into strips. All of this is stacked on the treadmill, which I need to be on right now!
I just need to keep remembering "baby steps, baby steps, baby steps!"
