I'm moving and I decided to use these comic book flats to help me pack my fabric.  It's fantastic!  Thanks so much for the idea.

Here's a shot of one box.  (I am currently up to six boxes.  Fabric much?)



It was so easy to do, and the comic book flats were like $7 at my local comic book store.

Thanks again!

I feel so silly for having never thought of this before. I actually tried hanging it all up in a closet once... I broke a lot of hangers that way. hehe. I'm so doing this next weekend (i'm moving rooms in my house, and adopting another bookshelf).

Haha... I have tons of closet space in my office/craft room, but not much shelving space.  When I read this, I thought hanging fabric would be a great idea.  Did you try to hang too many items on a plastic hanger? 

My mom hangs all of her tablecloths on a hanger after she presses them and it works great.

Entirely! haha. Apparently, what looks like a little fabric really adds up. I had those thick hangers (like you'd use to hang a really really heavy jacket), but methinks I must be a fabric whore... And I wasn't a fan of how disorganized it looked, either. i felt cluttered (OCD...).  :./

I bet it would look/function a lot better if i had a fabric closet and they weren't just shoved in with my clothes.

 Grin this reminds me of a super-cool hip indie shop with awesome craft stuff. i may have to use this idea too... as of now, i just pile all of my fabric in a laundry hamper... not so neat.

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.

This really makes me want to buy $500 worth of fabric just so I can put it out & have it be pretty in my room. Awesome idea !

wow so organized! looks great.

I did the same thing with my bookshelves (put them in order of color), my sister thought it was hilarious, and asked to help in her room.

great job really neat.
