The best way to keep things where you know where they are and able to get to is, to not have too much stuff. I know that was just as funny to write as it was for you to read!
I came up with a solution for my little stash. I thought I would share it with you:
I keep my collections of fibers together. All the silks, satins, wools, they all have their own space. With crazy quilting, you only need little bits of things, actually lots of little bits of things. So I came up with an expandable system to keep all those bits:
So after looking around the house, I had nothing I could use as far as a set of containers.
I came up with this cheap and easy solution!
Here is an example:
Fibers in the front, laces and bigger fibers in the back, all by color family
What you need:
Glue gun and card board1
Cut the cardboard, score bend and apply glue
for those beautiful bits of fancy fabrics, I put them in a baggie by color family and then in a storage drawer:
Everything stays neat and findable!!
I hope this gives you a doable idea for your storage!
Thanks for stopping by!
