Got fabric all over the place that you need to get organized? Listen, if you’re looking for fabric folds you can do with something as inexpensive as comic book boards, look no further, I gotchu! You are about to be blown away with this easy fabric folds tutorial!
I went fabric shopping Saturday and was so excited to get home and… No, not sew, put my fabric on the shelf. It’s a little sad, I know. I’ve started to hoard the stuff. Just when I think I have enough I get a new pattern and then want to get new fabric and start the vicious cycle all over again.
I’ve always admired how beautiful the fabric looks on the shelves at the fabric stores, but why can’t I do my own miniature version at home? I can! And I’m going to share a tutorial with you so you can learn an easy fabric fold tutorial using comic book boards.
Here’s now mine look on a little thrifted bookshelf.
All one size, neatly set together, and it doesn’t take much time to get it set up. Then your fabric is folded and organized for the future.
These are the comic book boards I used for this fabric folding exercise.
At first, I fell in love with some cardboard fabric folders but they are something like $6/ board! No thanks. Then I thought maybe I’d cut up some cardboard boxes to the sizes I want until I realized that would take forever. After a few Google searches, I found some comic book boards that would work. I got 100 for about $11 on Amazon and realized these would be perfect.
Fabric Folds Tutorial Using Comic Book Boards
I had scrap fabric stuck in a corner of my living room and decided to wrap them and conserve space by settling them on my book shelf.
Here are some photo demos of how I did it for fabric and scrap fabric, let me know if you have questions about this fabric folding tutorial. I promise you it’s really simple and you’ll have your fabric folds all nice and organized.
I mostly demo this in photos.
First you’ll want to lay your fabric out flat and get one edge folded down to fit around the comic book board. Turn the edge in, then flip the fabric, and keep flipping over until you reach the end.
When you get to the end you can fold the fabric up kinda like a little present, then stick a fabric needle in it to hold it in place.
Then you’re done! But what about those pesky little bits of scrap fabric? I’ve got a little tutorial for you with those too. Keep reading to see how to make fabric folds of your little pieces of scrap fabric.
Scrap Fabric Folding Tutorial Using Comic Book Boards
Similarly, you’ll want to use a small piece of cardboard. About 3in X 3in works. You can also make one from cutting up your comic book boards.
Then follow the same steps with your scrap fabric.
