I have this great IKEA Expedit bookcase in my Craft Room. ?I’;ve been using it to store fabric for a few years, but never really have?any rhyme or reason as to how I put fabric on it.

After taking Jeni’;s color class at the Sewing Summit in 2011accent pillow case baby burlap floor, I was convinced to reorganize it by color.

I took ALL of the fabric off of the bookcase and began folding it using my quilt ruler. It was a HUGE undertaking…; my arms were sore for days! ?You can see a tutorial here on how to do that. Using this method ?gives you even sized piles of fabric and makes for a much neater appearance.

It is so much better now!!! I was so hestiant to orgainze it by color —; after it was done I wondered why I hesitated so much. ?All of the fabric with a few exceptions (holidays, large feature prints) is now neatly stacked…;

Observation: ?I don’;t like purple…; I’;ve only got a few prints and they are mixed in with the pinks.. I really really like blue though (that one surprised me).

I have been squirreled away down in my basement for several days, opening up boxes, purging junk, and finding new homes for all my craft/sewing stuff.? I haven’t been able to find my interfacing for weeks, or my white felt, or ugggh…..my serger thread.? So, I finally forced myself to actually open up and clean out the 11 or so boxes that were just sitting in my craft room.? They had all been opened and I was able to find a few things as I needed them………but I’ve felt suffocated in my craft room since we moved into our new home (well, rental home), 3 months ago.

There are lots of ways to decorate with rugs whether it be for practicality, beautification or both! We will be taking a look at some ways in which you can use rugs in your home, which will hopefully help you when it comes to choosing your perfect rug. The one tip we can give that is beneficial in any form of rug decorating – anti-slip matting; not only helps to prevent them from moving around but also as a protective layer to the bottom of the rug which can wear down over time.
