Buy Cardboard Bolts For Fabric

I have recently been buying more and more fabric, some cottons for quilting and some fabrics for dressmaking. But my problem is its all currently sat in a basket and if I need to get to one fabric, I have to take it all out.

Though you might not know it there are certain types of materials that can cause damage to your fabrics to you to want to make sure that you are using the right materials to ensure long-lasting results and care to your fabric stash.

Before you start getting carried away and rolling up your fabric there are a couple of things I wanted to mention before you get started. Here are some tools I think you will want to use and will need.

If they are going to be in a shelving unit or box you want to make sure you know the measurements of the height and width so you can make your bolts the right size to slot into that space comfortably.

Take your measurements and start drawing out the lines onto your chosen material. If you are using recycled cardboard like me, make sure you have squared off your edge to be straight. Otherwise you might end up with wonky fabric bolts.

Why not go crazy by create a rainbow look or simply stack in order of fabric type. There are a number of ways in which you can organize your fabric stash to look pretty and be useful at the same time!

I simply took the cardboard bolts that were in my fabric that I purchased off the Walmart Clearance Rack and traced them out and cut them. I liked the bottom having the little tabs because it keeps the fabric from sliding off.

I ran out of cardboard from the toys she had received, so I started grabbing cereal boxes, anything. The thicker the cardboard the better, but for small amounts of fabric the cereal boxes turned out fine too.

the fabric stores are also usually happy to give you their empty bolts if you ask. I am in the process of reorganizing so I went to my local Joann store and asked at the cutting table and was handed all she had. I got a whole cart full both days I went.

I am SO glad I stopped by and saw this post. I just organized my fabric stash. I worked at a furniture store so I had plenty of thick long boxes, however, I didn't think to make the tabs on bottom. So, I guess tomorrow will be spent RE- RE-organizing my stash LOL. I also love your sewing machine, probably since I have the EXACT same one. I also got mine for Mother's day last year. I'll be stopping by often to see what other interesting things you have going on.

Our unique cardboard construction kit has everything you need to tinker, invent, and construct all kinds of dynamic contraptions and structures. WondrBolts give your creations the freedom to move without falling apart! This means you can build creations which have moving parts, from a simple windmill to a fully articulated robot costume.

My question is what do you do with your smaller pieces. I have everything in tubs by color, and do lots of applique so dont throw away much. So do you have the bolts for larger pieces and then tubs for smaller pieces

Taking all this information into account, I now know this particular fabric will work well for my project. And, from reading the label, I know the fabric I chose is part of the Strawberry Fields Revisited collection. If I decide to mix in some additional fabrics with my main gingham, I know the colors and patterns from this collection will go well together.

The look of bolt ends vary by manufacturer and some have less information than others. But the basics are always there: Width, Content, and Price. As shown above on the Rowan Fabrics bolt label, many manufacturers will also include basic fabric care facts, another handy bit of advice.

Most patterns also suggest the type of fabric that will work best for that particular pattern. Here at Sew4Home, our projects always list how much fabric is required along with the exact type of fabric we used and so recommend as the best option for optimum results.

Decades ago in HomeEc class the instructor had us take a hand-ful of fabric, hold it in closed hand for a minute or so then quickly rub it together to what it really felt like (wrinkles and how much sizing it had)

Always store your fabric away from windows where the colors could potentially fade from strong light. If you store your fabric in a cabinet with glass doors or your sewing space has a lot of windows, consider adding a UV filtering film to the glass to keep out harmful rays.

Roll your fabric onto a tube, tie it up with a couple of fabric scraps. After that, put your wine rack on the floor and nestle a tube inside of the rack. I often see racks at the thrift store for a couple bucks and a few of these together will make for quite a lot of fabric storage.

Should you ever find yourself in a fabric store wondering if there is enough of that must-have fabric left on the bolt, I have a little trick for you. A kind lady at the cutting table taught me this trick years ago, and I use it nearly every time I go into a fabric store.

Instead of asking the cutting table gals to measure out the fabric to make sure there is enough yardage for your project, you can just count the layers of fabric wrapped around the bolt like the rings on a tree. For a medium-heavy fabric, such as cotton and burlap, two wrapped layers equals approximately one yard. For thinner fabrics, such as silk or lace, three wrapped layers equals approximately one yard.

Most of the time, as I said, these materials are sorted first by fabric content, then by color or other factors. If you are not sure what type of fabric you are looking at, there is always a label at the end of the bolt of fabric that will tell you what the fabric content is, along with a slew of other information.

Not all fabric stores will let you cut in increments as small as 1/16th of a yard, but lots will let you do 1/8th or larger. And if you are looking to match a fabric for a project that is large enough that you cannot bring it to the fabric store to find a match, you can often times get a small sample of fabric cut for free or a small fee to take home with you.

I enjoyed reading this, and realized that not everyone grew up with a mom and grandmother who sewed. I learned so much just from being around them and going to fabric stores with them, but not everyone has that experience. You explained it all so well!

Yes, I love buying fabric. My biggest mistake when I first started sewing was buying pieces too small to do much with them. I had a lot of one yard and half yard pieces and found that the projects I wanted to do needed two or more yards.

Hi! I noticed all of your sewing posts, you might be interested in being on a group Pinterest board for sewing I can add you, email me at My Pinterest: Also, are you aware of all of the Mennonite shops on Facebook that sell fabric for an awesome price

You surely are familiar with the cardboard that bolts of fabric are wrapped around, right They make a wonderful surface for ironing, and can be configured into a folding ironing board. All it takes is three cardboard bolts, batting and about a yard and a half of fabric.

In the following video Rob from Man Sewing walks you through the steps of this easy project. Basically he tapes three cardboard bolts together so they fold like an accordion and encases them in a big batting and fabric pillowcase. The result is an ironing surface that can be folded to take with you.

I have seen many sewing rooms with the fabric all out on display on open shelves. It certainly looks beautiful!! It is easy to see what you have. I chose to fold my fabric and store it neatly by colour in 3 dressers in my sewing room. I was afraid that my fabric would get dusty if stored on open shelves. .

ST-CBPM Fabric Roll Wrapping Machine, Fabric Bolt Packing Machine is used to pack cardboard bolts from the Double Folding & Lapping Machine, which is widely applicable for hometextiles,suitings, etc. Advantages like savings in Labour cost, in time taken for loading & unloading, clarity of goods for customs-inspection, moisture & dust proof packing etc., attract both the exporters & importers.

2. The length of the coming cardboard bolts are detected by the intelligent photoelectric sensors; while the width and height could be adjusted by handle so as to ensure there will be no polythene film wastage during packing.

3. On the completion of side sealing, the packed cardboard bolts could be transferred to the Heat Chamber so as to crimp the polythene tightly over the cardboard bolts, which ensures a vacuum packing effect.

Textile manufacturing is about converting fiber into yarn, yarn into fabric, and finally, the fabric into clothing and other useful products. At every stage, production activity is managed by unique batches. When it comes to fabric, a set of bolts or rolls forms a batch,[12] representing the production.[13]

The length of a bolt varied according to the type of material measured.[21][8] The length is usually either 40 or 100 yards (37 or 91 m), but varies depending on the fabric being referred to; for example, a bolt of canvas is traditionally 39 yards (36 m).

The width of the fabric or WOF refers to the distance between the outermost warp threads. When you manufacture fabric on a loom, there are threads running in two directions, the warp and the weft. If you think of the fabric like a large grid, the warp threads run top to bottom, and the weft threads run left to right.

The usable width of your fabric is the measurement between the warp thread on the left edge to the warp thread on the right edge, minus any selvage. The actual piece of material could be wider than the usable portion, but most manufacturers will provide the usable width rather than the actual width.

In sewing, the WOF is the amount of space you have to place your pattern pieces between selvage edges. You want to cut within that boundary because selvage edges are denser than the rest of the fabric, so including them in a pattern piece can make your garment pucker.

If you use a cutting mat with measurements printed on it, you can lay out your fabric there to check the measurements. Measuring tapes work too, but a stiff tool like a yardstick is more likely to give you an accurate measurement every time. 59ce067264
