I keep old clothes for making dolls and other crafts. I had been storing them in a small duffle bag, which of course, means I had to dig through the whole thing to get what I needed. I finally got tired of that and sorted it all out into these old dresser drawers I've been saving for another project.

Here's the whole spectrum. I tried to crop out most of the junk on the floor.

close ups of the different colors





As I said, I'm absurdly pleased with how it came out, and I thought I'd share it here.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

So pretty! I love how you've organized it all! I imagine it'll be much easier to see what you want now Cheesy

Somehow I've never thought of storing the rolled-up bundles upright. Now of course I can see how much better this is than stacking them like logs: you can see each one equally, you can pull out any one without disturbing the others, and there's no danger of the whole thing coming down in a fabric avalanche. Angry This is one of the best storage ideas I've seen here. Now if I only had room for a chest of drawers to store my stash in...

Thanks for the compliment! You just made my day.
Edited to add: I don't hang out on this board as much as I should (mostly addicted to toys, right now) So I missed your Self-sorting bin http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=335964.msg3885853#msg3885853 Holy Cow! and you think my idea is great? That just makes it a bigger compliment. Thank you!
