Best Way to Organize Fabric in the Craft Room

Share this!

This is the best way to organize fabric and it looks great too.

Being organized helps me every single day. It helps me in my personal life and my creative artsy life too. I am super excited to share with you the way that I have learned to organize my fabric after years of struggling with it being a hot mess.

How to Make Mini Bolts of Fabric

Material Needed to Organize Fabric

  • Foam Core
  • Method to Cut Foam Core (Blade and Mat)
  • Scissors
  • Pin

Steps to Organize Fabric

Start by collecting and straightening out fabric.

Cut a standard piece of foam core board into eight equal pieces. They will each measure approximately 7 x 10 inches depending on the size of the foam core.

To fold your fabric up,  fold your yardage selvedge to selvedge and then fold it once more in half lengthwise.  Your fabric is essentially folded lengthwise into quarters.  Then, just take your foam board and place it at one end…

Wrap the fabric around the board until you get to the end then fold a corner down and pin it to hold it in place.

So, this is the area of my studio where I store most of my awesome fabrics.  I have a tall white bookcase filled with all of the colors and my favorite patterns. It is so much better than having the fabric in tubs and bins. I find I am far more successful with my creativity when I can see the fabrics out in the open. To be honest, I really just love to look at them sometimes. The colors and patterns inspire me, just like a shelf of books!

I cannot think of a better wat to make fabric organized and a beautiful part of studio decor.
