As part of the "Use Your Crap Challenge," I needed to be able to see what crap I needed to use. I cannot show you how the stash looked to begin with because it would take too many pictures--it was all over. (Not to mention that I would die of shame if I posted pictures of the mess.). Now, I can show it off!
Taking out the wire closet organizer was not an option--too expensive to replace it right now. Fabric or plastic cubes would have been nice, but at $5 a pop at the very least, that was not happening. Instead, I folded large pieces of fabric over hangers, used corrugated storage boxes small enough to fit between the shelving to hold fabric and serve as dividers, put in a hanging cloth piece meant to hold sweaters, and used plastic containers on the floor.
Yes, I know the cardboard storage boxes are not acid free. I'm planning on that being encouragement to succeed at the goal of USING the fabric rather than just looking at it.
Let the sewing begin in earnest.
