this is...my trade secret

As a crafty chick who loves all things vintage, retro. pre-loved or recycled my biggest challenge is keeping things in order.

After seeing a post on Craftster last year about different ways to store fabric I bought some of these

from Minotaur Comic book store

Basically they are firm cardboard rectangles a bit smaller than A4. Comic book collectors use them to sandwich comic books to protect them. I use them to store fabric by folding and wrapping the bits of fabric around them. This allows them to be stored standing up in a plastic box or book case so that all fabric is tidy and visable. Makes such a difference!

Incidentally I appeciate this is not the tidiest picture, its when i was storing the fabric in our bedroom before we got another book case (and the spare room back as a study/craft room!).



This week's theme is from Amelia, and you can find all the "this is" players here.
