    When I buy fabric with a certain project in mind or come across a pattern I really like and think - oh I have enough fabric to make this etc - I do not usually cut it out but instead put all the fabric requirements along with any patterns or pictures into a bag which I label with the name of the project, what is in there in the way of fabric and a date so I know how long it has been waiting to be made up. I then store all these in a large tub at the moment My tub is becoming quite full so I think before long I will have to go through it and decide whether I am ever going to make these projects up or whether the fabrics should now be relegated to another use?

    love this idea right down to the end. Thats where I do differently, I sew in my kitchen so I leave my unfinished items under my nose and in my way, so I dont have so many piling up, I must finish some to have room to start more.This year I have gotten all unfinished quilt tops done and have only one snowman to make a head for, stuff ,stack,sew eyes and nose on and all ufos are completed. If only I could get my tops quilted.

    I use scrapbooking boxes (about 15" square) or the scrapbooking envelops when I decide not to finish something. I put the pattern and enough fabric to finish the project in the box as well. I normally put a sticky note on the box (inside) with what it is.

    I stick mind in a plastic bag with lable, everything, thread, pattern all the fabrics then I put them into the cedar chest. Every project is complete as far as the necessiary item, just have to add time. So far have not found a lot of extra time lying around.

    I have the cube bookcases like at Walmarts and you can put the canvas totes in them. That's what I do and then I put the picture of the project on the outside of the tote so that I know what's in it. Not only do I not have to pull them all down to see what's in them I have a reminder of the things that I want to finish. Works for me.
