See this pile, this is how I was storing my fabric. It was fine for a while, that is until the addiction really began. I am absolutely addicted to fabric! It used to be scrapbook paper, and now I am 100% addicted to sewing and fabric! Quit shops are my new favorite destination! So I had an idea, and since I have a brilliant husband, he was able to take the idea right out of my head and build it! We used an old bookcase that was out in the garage, so it was also free!
So while he was busy building I was cutting foam core board and making my own mini bolts of fabric.
I took a piece of 20 x 30 foam core board, and cut it down to 10 x 7.5 You can get 8 from one sheet.
Next I wrapped the fabric around the bolts, the great thing about them being foam board is that you can use stick pins to secure the loose ends.
Now the shelf is done, and on the wall, ready to organize my delicious selections of fabric!
Now for all of the scraps! Wire bins sorted by color! All stored under my giant ironing board! Its great for when I am making my scrap maps!
What is your secret for fabric storage?

Great Idea for storing fabric. My husband is just adding on to our place a sewing room for me.

I ask for the leftover fabric cardboard at Joann’s , cut them down, wrap in scrapbooking paper and wrap my fabric on them. The fabric is then stored in glass fronted bookcases I got for free when my friend retired and closed her business.
