A sewing, knitting, felting and crochet blog by Mirela Popovici
|Ok, it’s time to admit it. I am a fabricaholic. Yes, it’s an addictive habit. It is as hard to stop buying fabric, as it is to stop sewing.. so why try to stop?
Sometimes all these fabrics gather up in a huge pile, as big as the mountain of ideas that pile up in my head. This can become overwhelming. I like to use every single piece of material I have, so the number of upcoming projects is greater then the number of fabrics in my closet.
|The 12 steps program:
|What have I done to get some light into this mess?|
|I have kept the stretch fabrics together, poly and cottons separated.|
|I have sorted the magazines by year and month. Burda in one pile, Boutique in another.|
|I have also arranged the threads and other notions so that they are in plain view, and easy to pick up when needed.|
|Once I finish a project, I immediately clean up so that I am ready for the next.
Arrange the bigger scraps of stretch for lingerie, and place them together on a separate shelf, ready for cutting and sewing.All that remains is to find the time, finish the piles, and then build another pile…
