Warning: this is a shameless display of fabric. I'm not going to make any excuses, they would be meaningless.
But after hours and hours of folding, I finally got my fat quarters (and half-yards) under control.
Some will understand how show-off worthy that is.
My upstairs sewing room has this odd little area behind the stairs. Not that I have a downstairs sewing room too. That would be a bit overboard, don't you think? I was just letting you know that my sewing room is upstairs. Of course, if you have an upstairs and a downstairs sewing room, please let me know. I might have to come visit.
Anyway, if this room was a man-cave, one would probably put a refrigerator here. But I put my sweet little fabric hutch there. And hung some thread.
Back to my folding story, I used tips from this wonderful fabric organization post and folded most of my fat quarters and all of my half-yard pieces. It literally took me hours.
I wonder how long it will stay this way.
The fat quarters (and some loose pre-cuts) are above...
while the half yard pieces are below. With some more fat quarters and pre-cuts. Sheesh. Can't they just stay on their assigned shelves?
It seemed a shame to hide away my Cotton + Steel fat quarters where I couldn't look at them all day long, so they are currently perched on the stairwell ledge. Children are not allowed in that area. Clumsy husbands are warned to stand back.
I acquired most of these FQ from Craftsy and it appears that they are on sale again. If my sweet fans would do me a favor and buy the rest then I won't be tempted to (because you know that two fat quarters of the same fabric are better than one). Thank you in advance.
And.... I know you are waiting to see my whole sewing studio after the big makeover. The problem is that it is a huge mess. I need fabric fairies to come put away the rest of the fabrics, trims, patterns, and such before I take pictures. And fold my scraps with their tiny hands. Because there are bins of scraps that I can't part with. Maybe I will show you the scrap bins next Saturday.
So now it's your turn! What picture will you post to our Show off Saturday Picture Party? Any sewing finish, WIP, or fabric stash will do!
