|I just finished washing five yards of a white polyester knit to use for t-shirt type patterns. Now came the problem of storing it. Anything from 5 yards up is so cumbersome. So, I had an empty roll from some wrapping paper and - how easy is this - I just rolled the fabric up on it. This will make is real easy to take off just what you need for a pattern. Put the roll on your table, pull out what you need for the pattern, place the pattern pieces and snip off the rolll and store it. How cool is that???
