I first saw this idea for using comic book boards for mini fabric bolts here. It’s such a smart idea, and pretty cheap too. Mind you, if you head over to that link, you may die from fabric jealousy. I almost did. Just wanted to caution you there.
First, let’s enjoy the pretty fabrics-if anything this opened my eyes to the fact that I can’t stop buying anything with teal in it.
I also need to beef up my stash of solids. I really really really like prints so that’s probably why it’s lacking.
So, the comic book boards: I got them on Amazon for $12-and it came with 100. I need another set already, though. When Sadie saw the cover she shouted, “MOMMY…… Supay-heewo!” I do not know where she learned that word, but it was hilarious. Probably from her little boyfriend Gage, who she may or may not be betrothed to. (lol jk…)
You just fold your fabric and wrap it around your “bolt”-easy peasy. This cut is a half yard, and I folded both long sides in like so.
It makes it look a lot cleaner and more organized. Of course, this shelf does not include all my fat quarters and scraps. Those are shoved in that cabinet you see in the pics. I don’t really have a system for storing those. Besides shove ‘em in and hope they don’t fall out.
It also does not include my costume satins, flannels, or vintage sheets. Yikesabee. I need more shelves.
I could look at fabric all day long….seriously.
Notice those little jars underneath the lower shelf? More on that another day!
