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.
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
