This year seems to be all about organizing and i must say i am doing good so far …check back with me after 11 months LOL
I remember last year when i attended my sewing course (which lasted one month) one thing that i remember clearly was that i was told not to throw away fabric because i could use them again for small sewing projects.
So i listened and kept most of the fabric until i ended up with a huge bag full of scraps!
It was getting very hard to maintain and i just kept it stuffed in one of those re-usable bags. It was ONE big mess i tell you and trying to find fabric was another story, because i would empty the whole bag on the floor and rumage through to see what i could use…
So when i was setting up my sewing room it was the perfect opportunity to sort that mess out and this is what i did.
You will need:
your scarp fabrics
So i went throught the mountain of fabrics and folded them and stacked them one on top of the other and laid them in the basket nice and tight..and VOILA your done!
I love this idea as i can now see what fabrics i have and the basket sits on my cutting table and just looks so beautiful
The bigger basket the more you can fit in of course so its all up to you, you can use embellish the basket a ton of ways just use your imagination and go wild
Here it is after i embellished the fabric with ribbon – you know how much i love ribbon i love keeping it nice and simple
I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial and would love to hear how you store your scrap fabric.
