Fabric Storage

Fabric Hanger DisplayMy fabric collection continues to grow while my storage space remains the same size - so I decided to get creative. I rigged up an easy way to hang fabric on the wall so it would remain wrinkle free and easy to find. I bought a multi pack of Large Command Hooks that hold up to five pounds and some nice, but lightweight wooden hangers. We rent our house, but even if we owned it I'd choose these removable hooks over nails any day! Fabric HangersThey are extremely easy to attach to the wall and they'll be easy to remove once it's time to move or rearrange the room. Setting up the hooks and hangers only took about five minutes- it was the ironing of all the fabric that took a lot of time. I love how it turned out. It brightens up my office and I always adore something that's both pretty and functional!

In addition to the hanging fabric I also store my fat quarters in my tall bookshelf:Fabric StacksThe rest my fabric is folded and stacked in my office closet in a closet organizer made for sweaters: Fabric CubbiesThere's a studio tour and interview over on Moorea's Blog if you'd like to see more of my work space. She's also hosting a giveaway here where you can enter to win any Vivi Dot necklace of your choice!Pin It

Molly that's such a great idea! I wish I had the wall space to do something similar, though I do hangup scarves like that in my wardrobe :) Em x

The coat hangers + fabric idea is so beautiful and practical! Excellent use of space :) Now I'm feeling inspired to rig up ways of organising bits and pieces around my house.

I love your work space! And the way you display your fabrics is awesome. I think I need to do something like that to inspire me to get my butt back to sewing!
I am really enjoying checking out your blog and am kind of suprised I didn't find you sooner! I hope you are getting along with all your planning to move/buy/rent/etc.
Much Love,
Crystal
