    scrap storage bags made fast and easy

    I've had several people ask for a tute for the scrap bags I made in this post http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t238483.html . I hope it is helpful to you.

    Thanks very much. I don't have a file cabinet right now, but am saving this in case I get one, as this is the greatest idea I've seen!

    Thanks for such easy to follow instructions! This is a great idea for things other than scraps, too.

    Is there a specific length to the elastic?

    I did not measure the elastic...just stretched it as far as it would go and that seemed to work.

    Thanks for the tute. Love your storage. I may have to try it out. I'm tired of all my totes. How much fabric can you store in each cabinet?

    I just went up and counted how many fabrics I had in my fullest drawer and there are 43 with room for more.

    If you have a dresser your not using or find one at a thrift shop just divide the draws then adjust your bags to fit. You can make them wider instead of taller.

    This may have already been mentioned altho I thought it would be fun to have the bags be same color as the scraps you put in it.
