When you have a fabric shop online like Thread and Loop at your fingertips, it’s inevitable that you’ll end with reams of fabric and plenty of fabric scraps to spare! We’ve already given you some ideas on how to use up your leftover fabric scraps, but where are you to store them in the meantime? Well, this is where Thread and Loop step in to help! We’ve been on a quest to find some of the easiest, cheapest, and most interesting ways to store fabric in your home – and we think we’ve done a pretty good job! Have you thought about using…
Modifying filing cabinets to hold your fabric scraps is a great way to save space and keep them organised, making them easier to find and streamlining your whole process! It also keeps them from getting dusty and protects them from fading.
You can either drape larger pieces over the included hangers, or create little bags for smaller scraps to find a home in; see how it’s done here!
Cassette Tape Trays
The rise of CDs and digital downloads means that these may be difficult to find, but once you do track one down (perhaps online or in a charity shop) they should hopefully be pretty inexpensive to purchase.
If you can’t find cassette holders, then you can also use cutlery drawers or stationery organisers instead.
The way that many vanity cases are designed and laid out means that they make perfect sewing organisers! You can keep all sorts of things in their various compartments and it’s super easy to keep them organised too, whether you’re storing fabric scraps, or if you want to keep spare pins, scissors and tape measures (or whatever else!) in there too.
Letter sorters are a great way to keep your post organised, but did you know you can store fabric scraps in them too? Wall mounted will give you extra desk space and will have more slots to hold more fabric.
However, keep in mind that they’ll let your scraps get dustier than other solutions, but if you plan on using them soon then this will be less of an issue!
