- I have a problem
Other important conclusions reached over the last couple of days:
- I love the way folded fabric looks, especially when it is all folded the same size
- I wish I had a sewing room and shelves instead of an armoire and a table
- I have far too many scraps that I will never do anything with because I hate doing fiddly things with tiny amouts of fabric
I used a tutorial (that I cannot find at this moment) for folding fabric using my ruler and it worked beautifully. I tend to mix cotton and some other fabric for making bags about 75% of the time, so I do have a pretty good mix of types of fabric in each color. I apparently love blue, because I have twice as much of that color as any other color. =)
In this picture above, you can see how I stacked my drawers. Plain/quilter's cotton is in the front and other fabrics are in the back. Each stack is 6" x 10". There are 9 drawers like this, 3 of them are more than half full and the other 6 are completely full. In addition, I have 1.5 file boxes full of fabric that I am keeping, plus 3 large boxes of fabric that I purged to give to my sister if she wants them.
