there it is... that's my secret. code name: SKUBB. i have five under my bed and each one contains .0574 cubic yards of hidden stash-ready space!! yeah, i don't know how much space that is either, but when full of fabric, one weighs about "two cats".
one time i told someone that i thought i had 30 cubic feet of fabric under my bed. turns out that was really crazy. the hubs tells me that if you order that much mulch, they bring it in a dump-truck wouldn't be a bad way to order fabric, if you ask me!
so, there it is... my main scrap bin. the great thing about it is that if you just stir it up a bit, you'll find something new and different underneath.
the other four bins are currently not filled with scraps, in case you're wondering. one has outgrown clothing (theoretically) ready for repurposing, one has my Pellon stash, and two are full of fabric i've bought but haven't "put away" yet.
top shelf houses 1/2 yards, bottom shelf 1 yard cuts. anything under 1/2 yard or in a strange shape gets thrown in the scrap bin (larger sizes even when i'm feeling lazy, and let's be honest, that's most of the time). other than that one nursery versery print, the most recent thing i see is fmf? been a while since i put anything away, i suppose.
so, that's it. my mess of an unorganized fabric stash. it's no 30 cubic feet, but it weighs more than lots of cats!! now... here's some info about how you can bust some of your stash!
