    I’ve just been sorting out and neatly folding my smaller pieces of fabric – into a boring old cardboard box!! Lovely ideas, lots of inspiration, thanks.

        I am so happy that there are others that are as passionate about material. I have so much, and I have tried to maintain it, but there is always a new piece or two that will find a way into the house…lol.
        I have found that a small bookcase or two in the closet will work for a bit. Until that passion grows.

      Hi Crystal! Thanks! I appreciate you stopping by…I think we’re all in the same boat when it comes to trying to find new ideas to control our fabric and supplies!

    Hi! Beautiful ideas!!! I love the Pink Suitcase, the hanging folders, the “Cut out and keep” idea and the printable fabrics labels…just for starting, and then I would like to have all the others projects (I’m dying for the Olabelhe’s sewing room!!!)!!! Thank you for sharing! DanielaC.

    Another lovely and inspiring post. Perfect timing for me. The danger of avalanches from my fabric piles finally got to me. For the past few days I have been reorganizing my sewing room. Finding room to stack all my bolts of fabric is especially tough. I have been adding more good storage space with more book shelves and an old entertainment unit which were cast off from someone moving. Now to make it all as pretty as your pictures.

    So many good ideas here. I hoard fabric so I really could use some good organization! Mine is stuck in a closet, wish I had the shelving in my sewing room like the one photo.

    Some great ideas! I love the file cabinet storage one. I must do that when I move my craft room. Right now, I’ve been mini-bolting my fabrics on to the cardboard inserts for comic books. You can pick them up fairly inexpensively and make for a quick and easy way to store and sort your fabrics!

    Love the chalkboard tags; perfect for me because I’m always changing things. I love the whole set-up; looks the easiest to maintain, the others are so beautiful but too fussy to keep neat!

    I store my larger plain pieces in 2 6-cube boxes from Ikea. My smaller (1-2 yds) in a shoe cube box from Target. My larger scraps in an over-the-door fabric shoe holder from Walmart. My larger patterned pieces are hanging over 3 pvc pipes with rope through them hung staggered so clients (and I!) can see the patterns. My smaller scraps are tossed in a drawer! Very utilitarian, easy, not nearly as creative as some of the ideas here!
