DIY: Sewing Storage Book

Hello Everyone!

If you're like me and save every little scrap of fabric, then your fabric stash may be growing to an abnormal amount! Along those same lines, if you don't have a proper place to store your fabric, you may have a furry four-legged tail-wagging friend who may run off with your fabric scraps (I personally would know nothing about that) lol.  

With that thought in mind, today's project is going to be about creating a fun sewing storage book! Now today's project is part of my collaboration with Xyron since I'm a member of their design team! This means that you will be seeing a Xyron machine in action! For this particular project, I will be showcasing the Xyron® 1.5″ Sticker Maker and the Xyron® Wedge Shaped Glue Stick. I've talked about the Xyron® 1.5″ Sticker Maker before, so if you want to learn more about it, then click here.

Also, in this project, I will be using items from Waffle Flower! If you have never heard of Waffle Flower, they are a company which produces cute stamps, die cuts and inks. There produces are designed to be used in a variety of projects and the selection they offer to their customers is really big. For example, you can buy normal die cuts or buy 3D template die cuts (which look really fun)!

Before we hop into the project, I wanted to mention two fabulously giveaways that are going on right now! One is on Xyron's Facebook Page and the other is on Waffle Flower's blog. Below I listed the details of the prizes that you could win and what you need to do to enter both giveaways!

Binder (mine is a 1 inch)
Clear Binder Protectors
Scrapbooking Paper: I'm using Light Blue from DCWV's Doubled Sided Cardstock Stack
Scrapbooking Paper: I'm using Jade from DCWV's Jewel Toned Textured Cardstock Stack
Colorful Stamp Pads
Acrylic Block
Scrapbooking Letters

Step 1: Cut your scrapbooking paper down to the size which will fit inside the main cover of your binder. In this case, I decided to cut a larger piece of scrapbooking paper (the jade) and then a smaller piece of scrapbooking (the light blue), to layer on top. Then cut additional pieces of scrapbooking paper to fit inside your clear binder protectors. 

Step 2: Now, grab your stamps, acrylic block, and stamps pads. Then grab a piece of your scrapbooking paper either for your binder cover or for your clear binder protectors and begin stamping away. Keep repeating this process until you have all the stamp pages that you need. 

Step 3: Grab your scrapbooking letters and spell out the phrases you want to add to your pages. Once you have your phrases laid out, take each letter and slide it through your Xyron 1.5 Inch Sticker Maker. In the above photo, you will see how I ran the ''s'' in sewing, through the sticker maker. 

Keep repeating this process until you have run each letter through your Xyron Sticker Maker.

Step 4: Add you're now scrapbooking letter stickers to each of your pages. Before adding them through, make sure you rub each letter while it's on the Xyron Sticker paper. That way, you'll be creating a really strong adhesives backing.

Step 5: Depending on how you designed your cover, you will want to grab the smaller piece of scrapbooking paper and glue it (using your Xyron Wedge Shaped Glue Stick) to the top of your larger piece of scrapbooking paper. 

Once this page is dry, slide it inside your binder cover, organize your pages and you are done!

Has you can see, this sewing storage book allows you to organize your supplies by having that main title page, then your actual supplies. The clear binder protectors did a nice job holding those scraps of fabrics and even those fat quarter pieces of fabric. Personally, I think having this system would be nice because you could easily store the book on a shelf and know exactly where your sewing pieces are at. 

Besides fabric, you could also store button cards, embroidery thread, patterns and even needle books by using this binder system!
