Confession: My favourite fabrics have spent the last year untidily heaped in an old box near my sewing machine, otherwise known as The Pile:
It was great to have my favourites on hand for random moments of inspiration, to sort through, dream, and plan my sewing queue – and just have them visible so I wouldn’t forget about them!
But it was unsightly, embarrassing, and for some mysterious reason it was growing bigger and bigger. Getting to the bottom of The Pile had become a mission. Things were getting out of hand – The Pile had to go!
I bought three plastic bins from the Warehouse – they are about as ugly as you can get, but they will fit tidily under the bed:
|When I got them home, I realised I had the wrong lids and we had to brave the horror of the Warehouse once again to exchange them!|
So, I have a container for SUMMER fabrics that I hope to sew in the next year or so:
A container for WINTER fabrics that I hope to sew in the next year or so:
And I have a container for NOW fabrics – things in my immediate queue, ie there is a distinct possibility that you may spot them on this blog one day:
And if I am going to be totally honest, there is still a lot of fabric stashed under the bed…..
And more in a jumbo box out in the garden shed…..
Not to mention what I bought yesterday at Global’s 30% off sale…..
Huh-hum…moving right along…
How do you store your fabrics – are they hastily stashed in boxes like the old me, or neatly stacked in ugly plastic containers like the new me? Or do you have a more stylish solution to share?
OK, gotta go – it appears I have some sewing to do 🙂
