Fabulous Fabric

While I was wasting time on Pintrest last night, I came across this picture and kind of fell in love.

I have been looking for a way to organize my fabric by color in a way that I can see it all and easily get to it. Right now, it is in about 5 or 6 plastic totes that are organized by colors. It's not exactly ideal. 

So, last night I googled mini fabric bolts and came across some tutorials on how to make my own bolts. I also came across a site that sold them ready made for about $1 each. I decided to go the DIY way and try using a piece of foam board that I had purchased awhile ago for about $2. I ended up getting 20 fat quarter sized mini fabric bolts from the one sheet. 

Here are the results of my first few pieces of fabric being folded onto the mini fabric bolts.

I'm pretty excited to get all my beautiful fabric on the bolts and get them all on my shelves!
