During my last fabric run, I thought you might like to see how I have been bolting and storing my fabrics. Have any of you seen pictures from my “Not a Cleanroom…” tour of my sewing lab?
While this isn’t really an “Ikea Hack”, I have found something better than comic book boards to wrap my fabric on, at least for the IKEA shelves. I use acid free chip board. This can be found in many sizes at art supply stores for a reasonable price. They typically come in stacks of 25.
The two sizes that worked for my IKEA KALLAX shelving and drawers are;
12″ x 12″ and 4″ x 4″.
I write or put a sticker of the fabric code and title on the chipboard if available, and then wrap the fabric around the board, folding and pinning the open end. Let me know if you have any questions. All of my small piece stash is stored in containers behind my shelving drawers. I love having order, and ability to quickly asses if something in my stash will see my needs.
