these. I picked up some foam board from Staples and cut it down to make the bolts. I wanted the fabric bolts to fit inside some baskets I already had from Ikea (they fit in my Expedit shelf), so I cut the foam board into rectangles based on the measurements of the baskets. The foam board I bought was 20" x 30", and I cut piece that were 10" square. I was able to get 6 mini bolts from each of 2 foam boards, for a total of 12 mini bolts. Since most of my fabric is in smaller remnants and scraps (projects for another day...), 12 mini bolts was just the right amount.
To cut the foam board, I just measured and marked with pen, then scored it with my scissors. It then snapped apart cleanly. When I tried to just cut it with scissors, it kept tearing, so I found this method to work much better.
Once I had all my mini bolts cut, I started folding the fabric into long rectangles to fit around the bolts. The first step was to lay out the fabric on the floor.
The last step is just to wrap the rectangle of fabric around the bolt. I chose to secure the end with a pin. Since the bolt is made of foam board, I just stuck the pin straight into the fabric. Now my mini bolt of fabric is secured in place.
I kept folding and wrapping the fabric around mini bolts until I was finished with all my larger remnants of fabric.
Then I placed the bolts into the baskets. They fit perfectly!
I filled all of one basket and part of another. Plenty of room for more mini bolts of fabric-- sounds like an excuse to buy some more fabric!
My next project will be to organize the rest of the fabric as well, as it's currently still in piles on the floor. Any advice? How do you store your fabric?
