I'm thrilled to finally have my fabric stashed organized.
It's a New Year.... so let's get organized!
I ended up separating my stash by color.
Oh, did I mention each box fits about 90 yards?!?!
My stash was pretty masssive, so I made this. I used cardboard and drew a 12" mark.
This is a yard of apple fabric.
Open up your yard (length = 22" because it's already folded, width = 36")
Place your cardboard in the middle.
Bring one end up to the 12" line.
Fold the other side. You will end up folding a yard into 1/3's.
Then fold over... your piece should measure 11" x 12".
Place your folded fabric in your box with the selvage ends at the bottom (like this).
Now start stacking...
I'm almost done, but there's still room for more.
Leave about an 1inch or so of space at the top.
Otherwise, it will be too hard to pull out your fabric later.
All done! My box is full! This is roughly 90 yards...
(Most of these are 1 yard cuts, but others are more than that.)
How many did I fill up? Oh, I think I'll plead the 5th.... : /
Now get some boxes and get organized!!!
Have fun and Happy Sewing! :)
