Scrap fabric Organization !
Time to take the plunge and Organize my Scrap Fabrics !
Embarrassing ! Here is a portion of what my fabric scrap pile looks like.
After much thought I decided my most used sizes are:Strips 1.5 inches, 2.5 inches and 3.5 inches. Squares 10 inches, and 5 inches. I also cut smaller sizes of 2.5 inches and 3.5 inches if they are not big enough to be strips.
Fabrics Scraps for AppliqueI love to applique so I also want to have a selection to use for applique. The 10, 5 inch and smaller cut squares will be perfect. I have also had to be realistic about keeping anything smaller, I know I will never use them.
How to organize your fabric scraps by color or Light Medium and dark ?After more thought.... thinking thinking .......... I decided that Light Medium and Dark is how I use my fabrics...... but I also need to be able to select colors easily so...................... I thought I would try to be supper organized and go with both and sort by color then light medium and dark hues. You must be proud of me, I know my Mother would be ! haha Finding little pieces ( now beautifully cut and ready to go ) of treasure and fond memories of my quilting process in these scrap fabrics has been a lot of fun. I wish I had started this earlier. I also get to go shopping now for containers, I would like breathable containers that can sit nicely on my shelf. One for each scarp fabric size.
