I really haven't had a heap of time to sit down at my sewing machine lately. Instead I have been constantly on my computer typing and studying. So that leaves lots of time to make documents that are sewing-related, right? Right!
Hi, lovelies! Oh my!!! It's been such an awfully long time since I've had time to blog. I've wanted to, trust me. I started back classes this fall at Auburn University after being out of school for 2 long years, and boy! is it an adjustment. This college is so much bigger than the one I attended last. With that being said, I haven't had much time to really do anything that I like concerning crafting or blogging because I'm usually always studying.
I have a textile class that I am in love with. I had a project in there that dealt with making a swatch kit, and it got me to thinking about fabric organization (and how I really need to do some!) Then I thought about how for years I had been wanting to do a fabric organization binder myself. Obviously, I never got around to it. Anyway, I sat down and created a fabric swatch sheet printable and I wanted to offer it. It's away to say that I'm sorry that I've been gone for so long and that I really do miss you!!
It's nothing very special, and I'm sure there are tons out there that look much better than what I can offer. However, this is something that I've really been wanting to do, and so here it is!
It features three places for swatches with fields like Fabric/Design Name, Content, Amount, and Notes. The swatch square is approximately 2" by 2". There is also an "Ideas" section at the bottom, in case you like to group together fabrics that are similar in colors or styles.
Download the pdf file here. Simply print it on regular paper or cardstock, attach either a scrap of fabric or a photo of the fabric, and add your info.
I hope you enjoy! Let me know if this works for you. And...please send pictures if you use it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully I won't be gone too long again!!!
