I've been meaning to write about my super easy fabric scrap organization for months but it keeps getting put off. But today's the day because although I liked the idea when I put it together in May, I LOVE it now that I have more scraps and can easily pull out what I need to practice a block, or quilting, or make a swap on the charity quilts I'm starting to make with my quilting group. (I found a quilting group at our new church!) Eventually, I have grand plans to make a scrap quilt.
(In case you missed it, you can see how I store my yardage and projects in process under my craft table)
I thought about making labels, but I thought it would be more fun to make visual labels with scraps from projects I've already done. I cut out 2" squares for each color, plus one striped square for multi-color scraps.
I used U-Glue Dashes to adhere the swatches to the Trofast bins.
The nice thing about the glue dots is that it will make it easy to swap the swatches whenever I want to switch things up.
A nice organized pop of color in my craft room!
D had fun helping me organizing by color.
I used three leftover cork planks from our kitchen and dinette to top the units. There were the perfect length.
It's the perfect height for my computer. Especially when I need to look up sewing tips!
How do you organize your scraps?
