Some of you may know, I recently downsized. Actually, I’ve been downsizing for the past three moves. I bought a house that at one point I really did love. But, as I grew up and lived in it for a while I realized how much of it was just wasted space. It was 1,350 square feet. The next place was 975 square feet. Still there were rooms that I just passed through. The next move took me to 750 square feet and now finally I’m in a 540 square foot studio. Let’s just say, there isn’t an inch of wasted space.
It’s great for everything…except my sewing. I tend to work on more than one project at once. Well, way more than one. Right now, I can think of 10.
So, to help manage it all, I have to be organized. I have all my fabrics folded and stowed in a cabinet above the fridge (not even kidding) and desperately need a way to know what it is, where I got it and how much is there.
Alas, I found Family Ever After’s Fabric Labels.
It’s a totally free printable that you download from her blog, cut up, and either tuck into the fold of the fabric like she did or pin to the fold like I will.
The ONLY thing I would change (and Rach, if you’re reading, I’d love an updated version!) would be to add a entry for the washing instructions. For now, I’ll just write it on the back, but it would be awesome to have it right there with everything else!
I just thought these things were too cute (and practical) to keep to myself. So, head on over to Rach’s blog to get your own!
