What To Do With All Those Scraps

4 May

In the process of getting organized and moving into the craft room I noticed I had a few bins of scrap fabrics. As exciting as that is for future projects, it’s also a bit overwhelming! So of course, I check out Pinterest to see what everyone else is doing with their scrap fabric to figure out a brilliant idea for myself!

Don't ever through away your scraps, no matter how small you think! Put them altogether in a clean jar for easy use.via mapleandmagnolia

As much as I love how cute this huge jar of scraps is, I think I’d be a bit flustered when trying to find the perfect match for a project! I think I am going to go with something more color coordinated so I can quick grab a few I love.

I love the color coordinating here but it still seems hard to find what you are looking for and the thought of it looking messy might drive me a little insane (I feel like I’m a little bit OCD here!).

Love Love Loving the idea of them color coded in drawers! Now if you haven’t seen my craft room it’s here, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with my closet storage wise and had a little something like this in mind:

I’m thinking since I already have my yarn stashed elsewhere that at the top row I might put these red and black boxes full of my scraps into organized by color. My boxes look similar to this:

I love that they aren’t see through – so they hide the chaos but they can be labeled and are seriously functional! Now all I need is my handy helping men and a home depot run!

What do you do with all your scrap fabric?

Wasted Space Not So Wasted Anymore!

8 Jan

Emma’s closet has been only used for storage since she was born. We have a big chest of drawers for her and since her clothes are so tiny I would just fold them up and put them in there. We also had the changing table drawers for sheets and blankets so there was really never a need to hang up her clothes.

This resulted in using the closet to put things she wasn’t using in! For a while I’ve wanted to do something differently and I finally got the kick in the butt to change things up around here 🙂

Emma’s closet has this nook inside of it that I’ve been dying to make a little reading spot out of! So while I was giving the closet a useful makeover I decided to make this part a little place to hide out for Emma.

On one side she has her spot to sit and read with her books.

The other side is her stuffed animal pile and puzzles on top of the shelf. Sometimes she’ll crawl into the pile of animals and hide out!

The rest of her closet got organized and is finally be used for it’s main purpose!! For the past few mornings she’s had a blast picking out her outfits not that she can see them all!

When it gets quiet around here I know just where to find her!

 

Now I need to make a special spot for me to go hide and get things done 😉 I wonder if Emma would let me work on my blogging in my closet?

 

Love Always,

J
