To finally get all my fabrics in order and to also feel a sense of accomplishment I’ve designed an organisation system that I call My fabric stash that you can download here as pdf-files. The premise is simple, each page has room for nine fabric swatches that can be categorized into groups such as fabric type, prints, color or collection. You can also write down fabric name, project and the amount. Hope you’ll find them useful.

Watch my instruction video below to see how the system works and my thoughts behind it. And to hear if I sound like the Swedish chef from The Muppet show 😉
As for making my first video – it was quite an exhausting experience, there are so much technical stuff to learn and that can (and will) go wrong. And as a journalist I only ever worked in print media and web, so I don’t feel natural in front of a camera and tend to look (and sound) a bit stiff. Oh well.
I’m still glad that I saw this video project through even tough it took the better part of a weekend. Admittedly this could be just as well be explained in a blog post, but I wanted to try my hands at video making and editing and this felt like a fun project. Also I have several ideas for sewing video tutorials so hopefully it won’t take two days the next time. And today I even invested in a proper microphone so I guess I will have to make more videos now!
Please feel free to leave feedback, I’ll take it in and see what I can improve.
