I stumbled across this clever idea for keeping track of your fabric inventory via another blog this morning (I forget which blog... sorry!) Cut Out & Keep blog presents what is described as "A Fabric Brochure" - a page on which fabric swatches can be organized. Multiple pages get inserted into a binder. I can see that this would be helpful for keeping track of the fiber content of fabrics, usually long forgotten by the time I get around to using the fabric. I plan to also include laundry instructions for each swatch. This idea even suggests putting a corresponding tag on the fabric. I don't have THAT much fabric at this point to need this step but it would be a good one for those who have serious fabric stashes.
Debbie, you knew I'd love this idea, didn't you!!
I cut out New Look 6468 in a hot pink embroidered stretch fabric, inspired by this dress (click on 'project photo' for a better look - isn't it adorable??!!) I cut this one out a size smaller than the measurements said based on the previous two experiences. Hope I don't regret it!
On the knitting front, not much is going on. I'm working on a dishcloth as training for the DishRag Tag Swap. I am a proud member of the Cotton Commandoes team and we are going to win this thing!! We even have secret strategies plotted. Hee hee hee.
