I am a crafter, and I have a hoarding problem. I have heavy piles of fabric that just stare at me angrily from inside their plastic tubs. At least I now know how to get rid of my stash: burn it.
Burn through it, I mean. My mistake.
I now have reason (a.k.a. tutorials) to believe that even if my fabric isn’t organized, the rest of my life can be. Check it out:
Chick chick sewing has this tutorial on sewing fabric trays. I have to say, my fabric isn’t half as nice as hers!
(This photo has some glasses thrown in the tray. How did she know that I always lose my glasses?)
Heather Bailey has her own take on fabric trays here. Look at its cute bows!
Film in the Fridge has a tutorial for round-bottomed fabric storage buckets. In this photograph the buckets are showing off their skill in organizing trucks and blocks and other toys:
Feeling Stitchy has this tutorial for a thread catcher. Keep your workspace clean while you sew more fabric trays and buckets!
Stash burning doesn’t happen in a day, though. Sometimes Crafter has some tips on folding and storing that fabric you didn’t get to yet.
Unfortunately, I misplaced the pedal to my sewing machine last year, so my own stash burning might be delayed. I’m thinking some yarn burning in the meantime. A future post, perhaps?
