I have mentioned before that my sewing "studio" is actually a corner of our bedroom. You can imagine how much of a disruption my return to apparel sewing with gusto has been on our space. I recently answered the siren song of a huge sale at Fashion Fabrics Club by purchasing a huge box of fabrics- I got fabric for 3 pairs of pants, a dress, 2 tops, a dress, a raincoat and at least 4 little dresses for Little Dresses for Africa. I spent under a hundred bucks, but with that box arrived some guilt about the state of our bedroom. So I decided a little organization was in order.
I ordered a pack of Ziplock Space Bags from Amazon. I have my quilting fabrics in bankers boxes, but that system is not working so great for me, plus I periodically find my sewing room help sleeping in the fabrics!
I numbered my bags and took photos of the fabrics as they went in. I made albums on my flickr account for each bag.
