Straightening Up My Studio and New Fabric

I received a new shipment of pretty fabric a couple of weeks ago.  It was my after Thanksgiving (Cyber Monday) order.  Who can resist a sale on fabric especially when tempted with such cute prints and colors?  Certainly not me so I placed a “small” order.  I had been ogling some of these rose prints for weeks.  They reminded me of vintage pillowcases.

I took one look at my little Victorian bamboo shelf where I store my fabrics that I love to look at and the ones that I want to use very soon.  What a mess it was!  I definitely needed to straighten it up to welcome my beautiful new eye candy.

I fold my fabric around a 10-1/4″ x 6″ cardboard rectangle pattern which I remove after folding.  I found this idea online from the ladies that use comic book backing boards to wrap their fabric around.  The boards work very nicely if you plan on standing up your fabric vertically.   Since the space between my shelves isn’t tall enough for my fabric to stand upright I have to lay it flat.  It still stays neat, but is harder to pull out a piece from the middle of the pile.

Here are the boards in case you’d like to check them out and a You Tube video on how to fold here.

In case you feel inspired, happy straightening up!
