I have been brainstorming on different ways to keep track of the fabric I own and in a way that is easy to manage. I wanted to implement something before my growing stash gets too large and I wanted a way to remember where I picked something up and when I am asked about it. So I came up with an addition to my binder that holds my patterns. I created pages that has place to jot down info on different fabrics as well as space for a little clip of it.
I also decided that it was best to store these in page protectors so that I could add notes on them with a dry erase marker. I wanted to be able to remember what I have planned for the fabric if I don’t get a chance to cut it and put in my project drawer right away.
I am sharing this basic template with my readers for those who seek a little organization , I know that it may be a bit much to go back to everything that is already in your stash and remember all the details but even just the visual and an inventory would be helpful. That is what I plan on doing with the remaining that I have.
I have also realized that I am filling up my little one inch binder rather quickly. I have divided it into three categories; fabric, independent patterns, and commercial patterns (which rightfully get their place in the back of the book since they are usually my last resort when I need something to do and I pick them because they are sale for dollar a piece).
I hope this helps. I am off to wash the new fabric I picked up today organize the remaining in my stash.
