I have been wanting to buy those fabric organizers but they are expensive for the amount I need.
So after seeing a tip about folding fabric on comic book backer boards the other day on craftster.org I had to try it! I found my nearest comic book shop and picked up a pack for less than $7 and got to folding. Here's what I did:
1. I took each cut of fabric folded and it down to a manageable size. (selvages together, then fold in half until It was about a yard)
2. I placed the cardboard on the right edge of the fabric, then folded the bottom up over the board a few inches, then wrapped the top down
3. Then I just rolled until I had one neat little rectangle of fabric!
4. I am now able to store them neatly in my cabinet - the door actually closes!!!
each cut is very easy to see. So it'll work efficiently for storing in plastic bins as well. I thought about arranging them by color that would be cool also.
*each board measure about 6.75 by10.5 inches.
*they come in a pack of 100
*they can be found online by googling for about $9/pk
*the boards are cardboard and coated on one side
* I was able to fold cuts from 1-5 yards
*all of my fabric was already somewhat folded so it didn't take long
