My material is currently stored in large 18 gallon tubs under my craft table. Rummaging through them to find what I need/have is a pain. I never remember what I have in my stash either. Purusing Pinterest hasn't helped much either. I did find this one here, but I don't have the shelf space.
While I was digging through my craft room today, I came upon these cooling racks that I bought at the Dollar Tree Store. (Remember, I said it was my favorite store.) I picked them up one day knowing they would be great for something, just not knowing at the time what. Guess what? I figured it out.
I sorted my material by colors and hung them from the rungs. I love how you can see each piece of material. All the pieces were 2 yards or less. The cuts that were bigger than 1 yard I spaced every other rung. A yard and less cuts were hung using every rung.
White ribbon (also a Dollar Tree purchase) tied the cooling-turned-fabric racks to a sturdy hanger. (Note: standard tube hangers were too weak, but I noticed at my last Dollar Tree Visit that they now have Heavy Duty Plastic Hangers so I wonder if those would work.) Now my fabric is ready to be hung in the closet for easy viewing and access. I'm already eyeing some for a cute summer skirt for my little girl.
Wire Cooling Racks, 2 pk (Dollar Tree): $1
White Grossgrain Ribbon (Dollar Tree): $1, or on hand
Sturdy Plastic Hanger: on hand
TOTAL: $1 and up for 2!
