Fabric Storage and Organization


Since I have been quilting I always purchase my fabric on sale and believe you me when I find a sale I purchase a lot of fabric. I was having a hard time finding a place to "store" my fabrics. I didn't want it just stuffed in plastic storage bins because I would forget what I had.


So at a garage sale I purchased this most excellent cabinet for $9.00. It had red crayon on the side of it, which when I got home it came right off with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser : ) I rolled up my fabrics and sorted them on each shelve.

Then I hung up 3 baskets on the wall above my sewing machine and rolled fabrics in there too.

I love the storage that doubles as decorations.

Wow! That is a "most excellent" cabinet and what a deal! I must be doing something wrong because I can never find anything that cool at a yard sale. It would make a great CD or video cabinet too. Way to go. The baskets look real cute too. I might try something like that for school papers. Love the ideas on this website. (08/24/2005)

What a great idea. My fabric, yards and fat quarters, and pieces of no measure, are all stuff into drawers. I love your idea, thank you for sharing. (08/24/2005)

I bet you could probably get a similar cabinet and baskets at a thrift store.

Totes are a great idea but, like you said, we sometime forget what we have in them. I bought a photo album, cut a small piece of the fabric and placed it in the album. I numbered the totes and placed that # under the fabric. If I look through and find the one I like, I just go and find that # tote. (03/29/2007)

My Avon-selling neighbor gives me empty boxes with actual lids. They stack great in my closet. I wrote colors on the outside and this solves my fabric storage solution. (12/09/2008)
