Organizing my craft room is one of those unending, always there tasks. I felt a bit more inspired to at least get my stash cleaned up a bit when I saw this pin on one of Quilted Cupcake's boards just a few days ago. Thanks to Amazon Prime's quick shipping, I had a stash of comic book boards waiting for me when my work week ended on Friday, and I was ready to go.
Some of the bits of fabric seemed a bit small to need to put on a bolt. I tried it with a few half yards of fabric, and loved it. The best part of having such different pieces of fabric on bolts is that, all stacked together, it's easy to see how the fabrics could work together.
I've arranged them by theme or color, just however it felt right. I'm sure they'll move around quite a bit as I pull them and use them, and as new members join their ranks. Arranging them by theme or color also has the nice effect of combining some of my newer fabrics with the older ones from my stash, as well as the older ones from my grandmother's stash. It's fun to see how the old meets with the new.
There is far more organization to do. I've got lots of little ideas, like installing a magnetic strip on the wall to hold my scissors, finish the window treatment in there (maybe like this or this?), and a thread rack like this - genius! But of course, there's always the big scale stuff, like where do you store a huge amount of packaged batting? (My one Black Friday online score - tons of packages of crib size Warm n Natural batting from Joann for almost nothing!)
Back at it I go....
