Today I'm sharing this inexpensive and effective way I'm organizing my fabric stash. I have lots of fabric in lots of containers and when I want to use something I usually empty out the entire box to see what I have and then put it all back (or sometimes I don't and the clutter takes on a life of its own!)
So here's what I did:
I cut a one inch or so snippet of every fabric in the container. Then I sprayed a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock with spray adhesive and stuck them all on.
You could also use glue or tape but I liked the spray adhesive because it's tacky. I could peel pieces off and move them around if needed.
*UPDATE* The spray glue does Not stay sticky over time. I've had to go back and re-glue my swatches to the cardstock. Just use Elmer's or other, stronger glue that'll hold up or you'll get this:
Once I had all of my snippets on the card I slid it into a plastic notebook sleeve and attached it to my container.
Now I can see what I have at a glance.
