Happy Hump Day Krafters!

Also, happy Pi Day! Spring is nearing and this is a perfect time to purge and organize. I am in the process of purging some of paper crafting items to make room in my crafting space. If you have been following me for a while, you know I have a decent size stash. Since my love for crafting is evolving, I made a vow not to go overboard! I was in the middle of organizing some fabrics and thought this would be a great post to share. I must say, my fabric “stash” is laughable at most. As pretty as fabrics are, I will not buy more than I need (keep repeating 5x)! I am a sucker for remnants though. It is a great way to build a stash as well as play with different types of fabrics to see what you like and what you don’t…remember to buy them when they are 50% off!


I decided to organize my fabrics by type. In the bin, I am storing my fat quarters and scrap pieces of fabrics. To me, it is easier to grab a little piece of fabric instead of searching for one or keeping it with the original bolt. I have them categorized in the bin by type and I tried to keep the colors consistent. In the second bin, I am keeping vinyl in there. As you can see, I don’t have very many colors. I will add more as I need them.



Unfortunately, I don’t have a space for large bolts of fabrics. So they are stored on this shelf under my heat press. It is out of the way and secure until I can find another solution. I found these at Wal-mart for $1 per yard…How could I pass that up?


In the drawers, I am keeping flannel and felt fabrics together in this drawer, I have fleece and nap type fabrics together in separate drawers. I found keeping the upright, with perhaps something sturdy in the middle, allows more space and easy to see what you have. Finally, I keep all of my fusible fabrics and interfacing together.




Again, my stash is very small in comparison to many. My thought is, why not get organized now? I believe it can be too overwhelming to do it once the collection gets bigger.


That’s it! I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Have a wonderful day, Krafthead~
