I know it's been a while since I mentioned the craft space revamp and that is because I feel as though the things I have made for it are in too many different 'styles'. As such, I have decided to scrap everything I have made so far and start again.
Regardless of what 'theme' I end up with, one of the things I have needed to get sorted out is my fabric storage system. I will tell you straight up that I am indeed a little bit embarrassed to be showing you this next photo, but I think it needs to be shown so you can understand why it was becoming a problem. You see, this is how my fabric is 'stored' in my linen press:
The worst bit is that the above photo only shows you part of the stash. I have about another 4 piles of fabric that are stored in a similar fashion!
I find that my biggest problem is that I can stack the fabric into nice and neat piles, but then I destroy it because I can't easily see the fabric I need for each of my craft projects.
With that in mind I asked Daddy Snicker to build me a ladder to hold my fabric and even though he thought I was a little crazy, he trundled out to the shed and made me one:
I haven't finished putting my fabric onto the ladder yet, but here is a picture of what it looks like so far:
Pretty nifty idea, hey! As you can see, I can now find the fabrics I need a LOT easier:
As I have waaaay too much fabric to store on the ladder I am going to have to come up with some other ideas for fabric storage. Of course I will be sure to share these ideas with you in the upcoming weeks!
