After I started coming to PR, I was amazed to find out that interfacing needs to be prewashed! (thanks!).....So I have started to do that, but didn't know what to do with the interfacing after it dried. I tend to buy at least five yards at a time, and it gets bulky, and storage is always an issue at my house.... One day I had finished wrapping a birthday present, and was about to toss out the cardboard tube from the empty roll of wrapping paper.....lightbulb moment!........Now I wrap all my prewashed interfacing on those tubes, and I write on the end of the tube what kind it is...You could also use the cardboards from fabric bolts if you have access to those...

That is a great idea! I often save paper towel roll cores to store patterns that I have traced onto freezer paper in. I never thought to save gift wrap rolls to wrap around.
