I’m happy to share my neat and clean studio closet with you.
This is the right side of the closet. I have a 7 runner and a 4 runner Elfa drawer frame stacked on top of each other with a solid surface top.
I used a variety of drawer sizes to best suit my storage needs.
In these drawers I have the quilting fabrics I want most accessible.
It holds solid color cottons, batiks, hand dyed fabrics, 1/4 yards of prints, and some of my favorite larger pieces of cotton prints.
On the left side of the closet I have recessed two 7 drawer units into that 26 inches of dead space to the right of the closet doors.
Again I have used a variety of sizes of drawers.
This shows the open drawers on the left.
These drawers contain bulky fabrics, supplies, projects and miscellaneous fabrics.
One of the things I have had the hardest time figuring out how to store is my collection of cheapy sleazy slippery sheer nylon and polyester fabrics, etc. Most of them are only 1/4 yard or less. I figured out that if I folded them so they were 6 inches high and rolled them around my 3 inch ruler they fit perfectly in a 2 runner drawer and I could see them all. I arranged them in color flow order so I could find what I wanted. I was surprised that I could fit them all in one drawer along with some of the other fabrics and trims I use for machine needle felting. I found fabrics I forgot I had when I arranged this drawer since before they were not at all organized.
I am really enjoying being able to find what I have. I am working on my second project since the closet reorganization. It is a BIG project. I hope I’ll have it finished and be able to share it with you soon.
