    That's the best use of a filing drawer that I have ever seen. Can't do much with paper BUT fabric !!!!!!! Hugs

    That is genius. You could have the drawers labeled batks, cottons, muslin, etc.

    Did you just drape over the dividers or how did you get that fabric so neatly organized into the cabinet?

    I didn't do this, I found it on pinterest but if I had to guess, I would say that 2 fabrics are draped over each side of a hanging folder, one fabric on one side and the other on the other side. Make sense?

    I've seen this done before. Works great doesn't it. (Hope you put some acid free protection between the fabric and whatever it's hanging on). Love this idea.

    If anyone was wondering how this is done, just saw this picture update. Basically cut a hanging folder in half and hang a different fabric on each half.

    What a neat idea, but I don't think I have enough drawers to hold my stash.
