Get inspired to get your fabric stash organized with these fabric storage ideas for your craft space.

20 fabric storage ideas
January is the month of organization! At least around here it is.

Once Christmas gets packed away the need for organizing comes on pretty strong.

Right now, I’m all about getting my craft space organized.

Why? Because it’s getting a BIG makeover this month (you can see how my craft room turned out here)!!

So I am naturally on the hunt for THE best craft storage solutions that I can implement in my new space!

Every Monday in January I’ll be showing off craft storage solutions from around the web for different areas of your craft space.

The 4-part series is kicking off with fabric storage solutions.

I’m a complete remnant fabric hoarder and am still perfecting my storing technique.  

I hope you’re as inspired as I am by these ideas!

I save the tubs which contain the fat balls i feed wild birds.they are perfect size for FAT QUARTERS the lids keep the dust out & allow me to stack and each tub holds^ a different colour fabric so easy to see at a glance what i have.

I like all those ideas. But I'm trying to figure out how to do when I have 25+ totes of material. Some given and some I've bought. I occasionally make baby character quilts, other quilts & other sewing things. I have small bedroom for my crafting area filled with sewing/crafting/crochet/embroidery/scrapbook things.

When I was a child my parents had close friends that we visited often. Both our houses were middle class and children played outside. To reach the friends house we had to go through Beverly Hills where the houses are large and beautiful, but not a child in sight. It’s still that way today in every upper class neighborhood I’ve been to. I guess the wealthy don’t need laws to protect their kids.Restroom

if I did, I’d do exactly what you have done. They are so fun and such a great pop of color against the white walls. And if you get bored, you can just rip it off and start over! Visiting from Redo It Yourself Inspiration party.
