Thread: Organizing Ideas For Swap Fabrics...

    I know everyone has their own way of organizing cut fabrics for any purpose... but I thought I'd share with you a method I use for one of my swaps (1.5" Stamps - sets of 50)...

    For this kind of swap, I use dollar store ice cube trays - as it prevents stacks from falling and/or beloved pets from making a mess out of things after you've counted them all out, then all you have to do is baggie them up when you're ready...

    Which leads me to my question for you all - I am curious... how do you all organize your swap fabrics of this size and/or any other size?

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    Wow, that's a cool idea. I would have never thought of that.

    I just do the old standby.. cut them and put them in sandwich bags.. No hoopla here..

    Love your idea.. !! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I did find a few of these in a garage sale for a nickel a piece.. they hold my 2 in squares perfectly- Leaders and enders..

    Garage sale find..

    Like these ideas, too. How about using a silverware organizer, the kind that is all square, for basically the same thing. They're easy to find at dollar stores.

    Wow....every once in a while I realize that I am still very much a Newbie! I have seen it before but was afraid to ask...what are "Leaders and enders"?
