You better feel good and have a TON AND A HALF of energy if you plan to start this endeavor -- especially, if you have as much fabric as I do!
I worked for three days wrapping fabric around endless bolts, and I have only stopped because I ran out of bolts. I receive another box tomorrow and another bookcase on Thursday.
Here's the video if you haven't already seen it:
I keep finding MORE fabric in places I forgot about. I have packed at least 8 Braum's bags full of fabric so far. I took six of them to Goodwill yesterday. Some of these fabrics are over 20 years old. I haven't found any that were damaged, but I found several I didn't care for or I thought were icky colors.
Here are some pics of BEFORE and AFTER.
Here's my stack of cut up foam core board waiting to be wrapped:
Boxes neatly packed but forgotten in the attic:
There were FIVE of these large bins in the attic. They are now all EMPTY!
And here is how I previously had fabric folded and stored inside the closets we built. I have four of these shelving units.
Across from the new bookcase are the shelves I had built into the wall which surprisingly can be arranged to store more bolts of fabric. There are two of these.
Gotta get. I'm about to fall asleep. Hope to clean up all the messes tomorrow. I'll put all the remaining fabric up as soon as the new boards arrive.
And then I will sew a million new things! I am starting with a summer maxi dress. Gotta build a pattern. I finished the blouse today that goes with the SALMON colored pants (thanks Deb!), so I will show it to you soon. I did something new and fun to it.
