    Do you separate fabric/scraps by color?

    This is actually for crayons, but, I thought it would be great for scrap organization

    I separate scraps by color, have a row of baskets on the shelf above my cutting area, they are labeled by color, as I cut I just throw into correct basket.

    I keep my fat quarters in drawers like those. By color and theme.

    My fabric is separated into colors in large bins. If I have scraps, they happily breed together in one bin.

    I have mine separated by size right now. I don't have enough drawers to separate by color, but I do have several sets of these drawers. That would work great. Now just to figure out what to do with the stuff in them. I do not have room for anything else in my sewing room.

    I do and I store them just like the crayons are stored but under my long arm table. I did not put labels on them as my boxes are see through so I can see the color any ways. also some colors do not neatly stay in one bin, they need two bins.

    My scrap organization is limited to 1) ugly, ugly but too good to get rid of 2)Christmas 3) skinny strips 4) selvedge edges 5) inherited from mama.
    Probably not the best system.
