Mess Management Monday #4: Craft Room- Fabric Bolts
Last week I shared how I organize my fabrics in drawers. But when I have over 3 yards of a fabric I like to keep them on the bolt. When I put my plastic drawers under my shelves I ended up with a bit of space in between so I decided to store some of my bolts there. I get the cardboard free from the fabric stores. They usually have a ton, and they are just throwing them away. I always ask first, and never take more than I need.
I usually buy most of these fabrics 10 yards at a time, so I eventually took over the bottom shelf as well. As for the minky, I only buy about 5 yards at a time, but it has so much bulk to it, that anything over 3 yards is impossible to fold and keep neatly. Most of this fabric is used for products I sell in my etsy shop (I've reduced my inventory of products until I can catch up a bit).
This last pile of gorgeous fabrics is from Michael Miller's Collection- Feeling Groovy and RoundAbout. I fell in love with the purple and green fabrics, and when we found out we were having a boy it wasn't hard to convince Prince Charming to decorate his room in the blue and green version of this fabric. Baby Brother is now 4 months old, and his room still isn't finished, but we are nearly done painting it! I hope to start posting tutorials for some of the decor in his room very soon!
