Let’s talk fabric!

The fabric wall. These are your basic book shelves that I bought from Target. What makes them awesome is that I added MORE shelves and spaced them to perfectly fit fabric wrapped around comic book boards!

I took one of the pre-fab shelves to Lowe’s hardware. I found a length of wood the right depth, and asked them to cut them into sections that matched the length of the pre-fab ones. Then I screwed in some wood screws where ever I wanted an extra shelf to use as the ‘pins’ and yes, I felt very smart again!

This is the only unit that doesn’t ‘match’ the rest and because of its style, I can’t add more shelves. However, you can use wire shelf accessories found in the kitchen section of Wal-mart. That makes more ‘flooring’ to break up the height.

I use this unit one to inventory incoming fabric that hasn’t been folded with the comic book boards yet. Or – it is fabric that I have set aside for something. The bins on the bottom are filled with fabric I folded in Athens! Tons of it!

It may not be around comic book boards but its still pretty!

The ‘messy fabric’ above is all of the Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy that I pulled out of all the color sections. I still want to make something with this collection. It is also where I keep all of the woven fabric and a few unopened bundles.

The boards standing tall side up still need to be re-done to conform to the rest… But this is all novelty prints.

OK – back to the brown table. This is the cutting table. But not at the moment of this photo because there is not cutting mat! It doubles as the fabric folding table and I guess that’s what I was doing that day!

Note the extra underwear tucked in there? NO NOT for me! But you never know when a little boy who prefers ‘buff’ will want to go out and play and that requires at least a pair of underwear!

Underneath the table, I keep freezer paper, graph paper, silhouette machine gear, etc.

The table has a keyboard drawer where I keep smaller cutting mats and my Brooklyn revolver.

Oh yes! I was folding fabric. A few comic book boards, solids from Clothworks, large paper clips, and tape.

This side of the table (faces the fabric wall) has more fabric to be folded, huge paint bottles for Max, and interfacings, etc.

on the other side of the brown/cutting table is this old baby-changing table. See my newest selection of bins picked up from the Dollar Tree:) I keep comic book boards and the other folding supplies that are currently on the table.

The bin is for wrapping paper, but I use it to house the rolls of interfacing I seem to have collected…

A caddy-corner is a little grey table that I keep another lazy Susan on – filled with tools, adhesives, and non-fabric scissors.

Alright – meet you at the Gigantor in part 4
