More Sewing Makeovers

My sweet Sis came to help me paint last weekend... the dungeoness shelves which I had turned into my fabric / sewing area. I had taken a picture of the 'before' a month or so ago, but it must have been so atrocious for me to look at that I think I deleted it from the computer. Oh, well... trust me - these shelves have needed an updo since about the 1970's.
The fabric that is inside out has been washed and is now ready for pressing then sewing. The fabric that is right side out is still unwashed. I've just about made it through all of them.

FABRIC: Knits and extra wide yardages on the top shelf, florals on the 2nd shelf, polka dots and stripes on the 3rd shelf.
Locker baskets make the best catch-alls - at least to make the catch-alls look as neat and tidy as possible.

FABRIC: Solids & Imported Prints (i.e. Japanese) on one shelf, Novelty Prints on the next shelf

April, your shelves look so pretty! I love all the colors together. And I love how you have the locker baskets in use. I have one from years ago and it is NOT organized. I so need to get my shelves done. Maybe this week....
