Canned Scraps

A few weeks ago, Bernina posted a blog entry about ways to organize your sewing studio which led me to another blog about ways to sort your scrap fabric. Someone had colored sorted their scraps into canning jars. It was such a great idea I ordered a dozen half gallon jars.

Now all sorted, it’s easy to find the scrap you want. I also think it makes them look pretty as opposed to being all squished messily in a box.


I used to sort them by color in Ziploc bags but the bags would get smothered down in the box or I would get lazy about having to find the color bag the scrap belonged to. I think having the jars out easy to see and access will keep me from getting lazy about sorting.

How do you organize and sort your scraps?
