My Creative Space....
Working on several projects - one of them is the never ending [or it seems like it] task of washing, ironing, folding and finding space for new fabric. Here is a link to great video tutorials for folding your fabric for storage.
do.Good.Stitches block - will save my 1/4" dilemma for it's own post. Yes, it was that bad. The block tutorial is on the Moda Bakeshop. I am loving this block too - another stash burner.
scissors - I think I have shared them before, I really do love them.
Pink Chalk Fabrics - solids is one of those things that I don't go out to buy unless it's white, gray or linen. I thought this would be a good way to build my stash with color! The perfect part of it is you can get it in the stack size you want; fat qtrs, 1/2 yard or yard cuts.
With my more frequently used solids I cut about a 3x3 piece and safety pin a tag to it with the name. Thanks to Cherri for this tip! And lord knows I have tags leftover from scrapbooking. Then all of this is kept on a chain that hangs by my sewing machine. Remember to cut a big enough piece so you have a good sample. If it's too small sometimes the colors are so close it would be hard to tell in you only had a tiny sqaure.
Be sure to check out the other creative spaces here... and play along!
