    Timtex is a very stiff type of pellon usually used in purses, fabric boxes and sometimes bookcovers. It is thick and VERY stiff. Lighter interfacing would probably work, and would certainly be easier to sew. Both JoAnn's and Walmart carry it here.
    Plus, lighter interfacing might be less expensive than Timtex.

    I've bookmarked this for future use in my sewing room. A very clever way to store those odds and ends that tend to stack up or get lost.

    If I had wall space, there would be one of those. Wonderful idea, not just for the storage, but protecting the pieces from wrinkles and ragged edges. piecefully, the old one

    I used quilting fabric and Timtex to make this. The back is one pannel of Timtex covered with fabric on both sides. I made tubular slings of quilting fabric also stiffened with Timtex and sewed them across the top to the back pannel. The whole thing is about 36" long and 20" wide.

    I like your idea.

    What a wonderful idea! One could even label each fabric "bin" with what is stored in in (maybe with an embroidery machine)! Thank you so much for the idea! Could you come and act as a consultant for redoing my sewing room? :)

    Great Idea. Think I will make a narrow one to hang on the back of one of the closet doors.
