It is that time of year again. As the end of summer approaches I get the urge to sort my fabric AGAIN, organize my projects AGAIN, and generally make more of my sewing space AGAIN.
I have new scraps from a year of WIPS (works in progress) worked on and new projects begun. The fabric heaps can take over in no time. Finding the table top again can become a chore in itself let alone the cutting mat and the rotary cutter.
I was discussing the frustration of dealing with my scrap with Julie, a wonderfully creative customer that comes into the shop. Julie has some great ideas about scrap storage.
An ‘over the door’ shoe organizer, containing see-through pockets, is home to a rainbow of scraps. Each pocket contains a different colour of the rainbow including a pocket for black and gray.
After speaking with Julie, I had a look at my scrap bucket.
I decided to sort my fabrics into colour families and place each family into a seperate container.
I can grab the tub I need when working on a particular block and sew on the go!
On to my fat quarters….
