Great Ideas for Storing Fabric

 

Can we really get enough inspiration for storing fabric?  The thing is, organizing is only as good as how well you can function with your fabric.  If filing it away doesn’t work because you can’t see it? Then it will never be right for you.  What I am in love with is the re-purposed ideas below.  A crib railing turned side ways?  Genius!  Finishing an old throw away dresser by removing the drawers?  Excellent!  The Ikea storage is great, but I think you need to be careful how heavy they get, I used them for clothes in my closet and it crashed!  I love all these ideas and I hope you find one for you!

Check out these fabric and craft room storage ideas from years past!

One of the things I love about seeing coordinated designer print bundles in fabric shops is how they choose to create it.  Some are based on color, some are based on holidays, some are based around historical time periods.  This bundle from Sew Modern is a theme bundle based on Back-to-School!

Tonight is meet the teacher night at our school, so I’m about out of time to do any sewing at this point, but I am going to mark some of the fabrics in this bundle because I think they would be perfect for teacher gifts!  How much would a teacher love an extra tote bag, note book covers, bulletin board pins, organization items like pencil holders, and so much more!

I think Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney was the first book I read to my son as an infant.  I loved the book long before that however, and it was always on my list of things to give new mothers at baby showers.  Now the beautiful artwork illustrations of Anita Jeram have leaped off the page and onto fabric.  Guess How Much I Love You fabric is perfect for anyone who wants this beautiful message as a theme for their baby’s room.

 

Guess How Much I Love You Sewing Inspiration

 

I found the collection first at Chit Chat Fabrics.  Wouldn’t it make a beautiful quilt or crib set?  I would even pop it into some embroidery hoops or other fabric decor to hang on the wall.  You could make burp cloths and receiving blankets.  May I have a do-over please?  Turn back time and use this in my nursery?  No?  Okay, well then use it in yours!  Find the fabric at:
