I did something very important. I organized my fabrics. I read some recommendations on the internet and I got inspired. Plus I had a huge mess. Most of my fabrics are in some shelves by my sewing area. I have others in plastic drawers in my closet. But there was also a lot just over the table waiting to get a place. So here's the before.
here to see the tutorial I followed. I'll explain what I did. This is the boards I got at amazon.
First you flatten your piece of fabric with the fold on top and the selvage at the bottom. Then you fold it bringing the selvages up to the fold. Now you have a thinner (22" aprox.) length.
You place one board over your strip of fabric.
Then you start folding the fabric around the board.
When you finish you can place a pin to hold the fabric in place. I left the point inside the fabric so there's no pinching myself!
See how cool it looks? They are mini bolts of fabric. I only did fabric cuts of fat quarters or more. The ones with less I put in my plastic drawers.
Here are some canvas prints I got recently, mostly geometrics of course (I love them) and owls. I already started a bag using the navy blue dotted one.
