Organize Your Fabric


I love looking at my fabric!
But it didn't used to be that way...

Does any one else's fabric collection look like this?


When I would look for one piece of fabric, I usually had to dig through a few boxes and make a mess in the process. And these boxes had been "neat" before, but let's just say getting the fabric to the box instead of the craft table is an accomplishment. :)

For my sanity, I needed better organization and found this wonderful idea using foam posterboards. Not only is the organization neat, but it doubles as beautiful decoration. Designer fabric needs to be displayed instead of hiding in a box!

Now I can view all of my fabric easily and take out
the one that I need without disturbing the organization.
I LOVE it!

Wanna see how I did it?
Check out the tutorial on The Ribbon Retreat Blog!


Remember a wonderful place to buy designer fabric is  

They carry a wonderful selection and have new collections 
coming in almost weekly!

Plus, make sure to sign up for the newsletter to find out when the fabric sales are.

Have fun organizing!

  1. I am working on my craft room right now and just told my husband that I still have more things that I need to purge. This is gorgeous.

    I hope you can share a post with us over at the It's a Wrap Link Party at Artful Rising.

  2. Poster boards! Brilliant. Stopping by way of Cherished Bliss's linky party. I've always just assumed that this would be a pricey way to organize fabric, but poster board makes it affordable. Awesome.

  8. It looks amazing! I think I might have to sort through my fabric and see if I can't make it easier to see/use. Thanks for sharing your fabric "makeover".

  9. Gorgeous job! Did you use foam core to wrap your fabric to create bolts? I did this last year and it truly made my craft room 10x more organized!
