It can be overwhelming to figure out how to store fabric scraps when they add up so quickly! I know it is tempting to just pitch them, but even if you don’t have time to sort and save them, you can always give them away to other quilters or crafters (even kids’ art classrooms!).
I was inspired to share all this because Jen from Faith and Fabric is hosting a series of “Sew Much Fun Blog Hop“s. I’m joining in today with tips for storing fabric scraps on a budget! Despite being focused on using up every last scrap and blogging about scrapbusting, I’ve never shared any pictures of how I store my own scraps. I sew in a spacious dungeon with unfinished floors and walls, which makes it the last place I ever think to take pictures. I realize all of my scrap sorting may seem over the top, but I really do try to produce as little trash as possible in my sewing room. These ideas and tips apply to fabric scraps of any kind; be sure to check out my list of 60+ ways to use up knit fabric scraps or all my fabric scrap tutorials here!
