    thanks, I got the idea from something I read somewhere. The toilet paper tip is awesome because it's all rolled up and ready to sew with. I have a long ribbon that I use to tie it around my neck and let the tp binding hang like a necklace instead of in a mess on the floor.

        Just for you.

        I've only taken a photo of half the closet, because the rest of it is in darkness. As it should be, it looks worse then what I did photograph!

        The fabric is no where near any sort of organized at the moment. I was working on a couple things, grabbed a bunch of fabric and then shoved everything back willy-nilly. Same for precuts. Going though the projects I need to work on, that's in a pile of the third shelf. The organized buckets are currently shoved into the neverland of the darkness of the other part of the closet.

        Our board game obsession has begun to creep into my room since we ran out of room in the living room.

        So, it's bad and I need to organize. But I don't want to. It's too frightening

          Snippet, Pandabear, thanks for sharing. I like to keep my fabric in drawers, but I never knew what to do with the tops-waiting-to-be-quilted. I'm going to try the technique of the clipped pant hangers.

            Thank you Pandabear for showing us your messy closet! I've seen worse, mine has in fact at times been messier. At least you don't have lots of spillover and bins on the floor too--which is my current problem. Anyway it looks like controlled chaos to me!! You probably know where everything is, even messed up!

              Heh, I purposely didn't take a picture of the floor. It's just as messy. Glad to know I'm not the only one with a mess on their hands.

                Pandabear I am right behind you. I just moved from a 3,000 sq foot home to a 2 bedroom apartment in the city. Still unpacking, but my sewing space was the first to get set up. Its still a work in progress as I have a few more tubs to unpack. Two steps forward and three steps back ... when I start a new project and pull everything out to look for one little piece I need, anything in the way ends of upon the the floor. I had some leftover "velvet" hangers that work great for hanging jelly roll strips that have been opened or in use. The white shelving was imported from my daughters' bedrooms since they are adults now and living on their own. Batting is stored on the upper rack in the closet. IMG_7204.JPGIMG_7205.JPGIMG_7206.JPG

                  For boards, I recycled the Amazon boxes and USPS boxes that my fabric and notions arrive in, and food pantry boxes my neighbor provided, and a few Uhaul and Lowes boxes I had to buy ... just cut them down to the size I need to fit the fabric and shelving.
