Organizing Excess Materials for Sewing Projects

You can separate the materials into categories, cottons, silk, and such. If the material is cut, hang on hangers and use the garment protectors. You should then be able to store bolts of material in there as well. Zip it up around the hangers and bolts and hang it all in closet. This will protect materials from dust, bugs, and whatever else that could ruin expensive materials.


Or for cut fabric only, use an over the door shoe organizer and roll your material if it's small enough to fit in pouches. These come in over the door style or hang in the closet.

Another thing you could do is take rolls from gift wrap, roll the material and stuff it into the tube, and then place it in a storage unit meant for gift wrap and cover it with a garbage bag to protect it from dust. Mark on tube with marker what the material is and its size.
