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!

This looks great! It really is so easy!

completely awesome..I have a gigantic bag of fabric upstairs someone just gave me just lying around and I had been hoping to run across something to get them sorted and organized!! Great idea!

My cousin showed me how to do that, only she used (and now, so do I) comic book boards.  You can get 20 for about $10 at most comic book stores.
I love what you did to your room.

This could be done inside an old armoire instead of a bookshelf. If you don't have space for a craft room, add shelves to an old armoire and organize everything in there.

these ones are more expensive but still waaaaaaaaay less than the fabric organizers and are almost the same dimensions.  I will, however, be using the less expensive smaller ones.  I don't have massive amounts of fabric, so those should do me


Thanks for the inspiration!  My hubby says to say he totally loves you b/c you made me want to get all my fabric and yarn organized and out of "his" garage LOL

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

Love your organization, even if it now several years old.   Smiley

Here is the link http://www.bcwsupplies.com/products/Comic-Boards/ to the site I purchased my acid free comic book boards several years ago.  I had so many people ask me about my storage that I wrote a blog tutorial in 2008 at http://featheredfibers.wordpress.com/2008/02/28/fabric-stash-organization-and-tutorial/ 

I did not live near a comic book store, so I decided to order online.  Obviously, if a store is near you, this will save you on shipping. 

While it is tempting to use inexpensive cardboard for organizing your fabric stash, I do not recommend it because the cardboard may not be acid free.  In my day job, I am a professional machine quilter and teacher, so I work with textiles, fibers and quilt store fabrics on a daily basis.  There are several products marketed by quilters for this, but they are very pricey.  Save your money and use acid free comic book boards.    Regards, Carla
