After struggling with trying to figure out which fabrics I had, how much, and even where in the house I have it at, I finally got fed up with it? Meet the new me - at least the new me when it comes to Fabric Organization!
What is this? It's a tag - made from stiff scrapbook paper (no I don't scrapbook but I do love the papers though :P, label sticker with the fabric into (including yardage), a lovely little piece of ribbon, and a safety pin to pin it to the fabric. And voila! One step closer to organization - I hope. Well it can't be worse right?
Safety pins, cut up ribbons, cardstock paper cut. Not pictured but equally needed: magic tape and shipping labels.
After a little while of cutting tags and sitting up my Access database to keep an electronic version of my fabric stash I got 6 fabrics labeled and accounted for:
This is already making me smile and happy anticipating an organized fabric stash. BTW - more info on the fabrics later - hint it's my next stash from Piece N Quilt.
Hopefully I could get the rest of my fabrics organized in the fashion - or at least die trying! Just kidding. But I do really hope that this makes me remember the name of the fabrics so when people ask where I got the fabric or what it is - I could then reply "It's Essence Fall Flowers from Piece N Quilt - it's another Moda fabric". :)
I'll update - hopefully not too long from now - on my completely organized Fabric Stash.
