A GOOD PRODUCTIVE DAY

I started to title this post Don’t Leave me Just Yet lol! I’ve been soooo busy with family, church activities & first one thing & another, the sewing room has been neglected along with much needed ongoing projects I finally finished my chicken print apron ohhh it’s so cute lol!

love love love the polka dots I choose for the trim & the rufflecrafting17I’ve been organizing fabric & well lets just say there’s no end to the fabric so there’ll be other ways to display it for sure lol, anyways , I seen on pinterst where you fold fabric with a quilting ruler to make it flatter, taking up less space ,so I began to give this a try, how cute is that, each of these are a good 1 –1& 1/2 yds

  fold your fabric on the wide end 

crafting3

lay your ruler on the edge

proceed to fold

the  slide ruler out the end & fold in half 

crafting6

fold in half again & add to  your stack

fabrics that have been cut can also be folded this way crafting10

 crafting11crafting12

what about small pieces

crafting13

they work too! crafting14they will be smaller when folded in half but looks great in a basket or scrapbook bin , whatever you wish to display them in  crafting15how cute & neat do they look on the shelf

crafting20I have way way too much fabric to try to do this  method in one day lol!so I ended playing in the fabrics with the scraps, what to do with those scrapes? why add them to my 2 & 1/2 inch square collection lol!

The two fabrics you've used look so good together!!! I love polka dots. A great apron. Great tips for storing fabrics, too.
