A while back I started to fold up my fabrics into pretty little squares using a quilter's ruler. It looked great, but quickly became messy again when I would pull out more than a couple to use. There was no way to keep up with it staying nice without spending a lot of time. I'd also seen some of the commercial items available, which are waayyy out of my budget.
Yesterday Crazy Domestic's topic was organization, including a great idea at The Little Green Bean. I ran to Michael's and picked up four sheets of foam board. After checking the size of my fabric storage baskets, I decided to cut the pieces 10" x 4", getting 14 mini-bolts out of one sheet. Here's the start, with this basket holding 38 cute little mini-bolts.
This will work! I can pull out several, and it's quick rolling the fabric back onto the mini-bolts. Then, they are easy to slip back into the basket. This is just the push I needed to get into the swing of making a big dent into reorganizing my studio. Woohoo!! What time does Michael's open? I need more foam boards. Until then, maybe I'll just dig out more messy fabrics, cut off the selvages, and get them ready to roll.
