I use the large racks for clothing, but wanted to share an idea for the smaller racks on the table or hanging on the door to organize fabric storage when sewing a project.
Here's the small drying rack on the end of my cutting table...
Small in size, but big in function...come on in and see more!
These small racks are perfect for your sewing and craft rooms for so many reasons, but the best reason is to organize and keep the fabric you are using for "one" project all in one place.
It will fit any where, but keep it close for easy access.
(side note...don't be fooled by the nice clean room in this picture. I took pictures for a post I'm doing on my sewing room and this was right after the clean up...I have the true messy pictures for that post...lol)
When you are quilting or cutting multiple fabrics for projects the PILES and PILES of fabric can build up everywhere.
You know those piles I'm talking about. The ones where you can lose your scissors, eyeglasses and the pattern you're sewing with.
Hanging your nicely iron fabric on this rack, not only keeps it wrinkle free, it keeps it organized so you can see it easily and grab the fabric when you need it.
It's thin and doesn't take up much space either.
Mine has 2 elastics on it so the latch bars won't pop off easily.
Just unhooks and folds down.
Very thin for easy storage when you're not using it.
The second place to use it is hanging from the door in your sewing space.
This door is an exterior door in my sewing room, so the normal over the door hooks won't work. An outside door is wider than an interior door.
So I used 2 wreath hangers!
They're clear so you can barely see them.
The big hook for the wreath easily holds the rod from the rack
One hanger for each side.
Hanging the rack on the door is the perfect place to hang fabric that you are working with, especially if you don't have a designated crafting room.
You can hang this on any door in the room you are working in and it gives you so much more workable space.
- keeps fabric wrinkle free
- easy to find and not in piles
- also frees up space on your table...more room to actually work
I did a post years ago on using the large rack when cutting strips of fabric for strip piecing. The large racks are great for more fabric and bigger projects.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope this works in your space!
