Step one. (I don't have a before picture) I pulled out all fabric that was not "prim" to me. I buy all kinds of cotton fabric when it's on sale or when I see it in thrift stores. Since I can't sew clothes my stash is limited to cotton quilting fabric. I had a smaller bookcase where all this fabric is for now. I haven't gotten to it yet to reorganize.
Step two: I then stacked my "prim" fabric according to color. You all remember ROYGBIV of the rainbow right? That's how I then put it on my shelf.
Step three: After seeing a picture where someone put their fabric on their sides like books of course I had to hop on the train and try too.
I really like the way it looks AND I can see all the fabric. On the top shelf I am not tall enough to see it at eye level so i can't see what's on the bottom of the stack. I think I'm going to do this on the top shelf too and see if I like it this way for awhile.
I'm getting closer to reorganizing the whole room but still have a long way to go. I promise I won't bore you with tons of pictures of it though. LOL I promise I will get to some crafting things soon.
