I am embarrassed to show you the inside of the Polka Dot Linen Closet. This is before I cleaned it up, I just had to do something!
You all know what it is like, you pull out one piece of fabric and a whole pile falls.
Are you ready???
Oh, I am feeling creative!
I cannot take credit for this idea, I saw it on a blog and I would love to give credit, just claim your idea and I will put your link.
I used comic book backing boards like this, take note of the size and weight. I ordered them on the internet and I do not remember what site it was, but there are many.
There was 100 boards to a package and I think they were around $12.00. When I first received them I did not think they were much sturdier than card stock, but they are. It works perfect for 45" fabric you just fold it once.
Here is my vintage Fabrics, love them!
This is my lace, I love lace, but I had no idea I had this much!
And whats a Polka Dot Closet without polka dots?
I just love polka dots!
The surprising thing about this project is it did not free up a lot of room in my closet. It did give me the opportunity to edit my fabric and take a big bag to the Goodwill. This took a lot of time, I worked on it over 3 days off and on, I bet it took 6-8 hours.
It feels so great to have it done, It sure will be fun the next time I do a sewing project!
In full disclosure I have to tell you I am a neat freak, my house is usually spotless, just don't look in my closets or drawers!
Is anyone else like this where everything is neat, but your closets and drawers are a mess?
Ok, I feel better now that my dirty little secret is out of the closet!
