It’s Tool Review Tuesday! This is where we choose a tool, do some rigorous product testing, and produce a review that gives you the nitty-gritty details needed before you add something to your cart.
Featured Tool: Fabric Organizers by Paper Pieces, Item #71472
Connecting Threads Reviewer: Jenna
What is this typically used for?
This tool helps fold fabric so it measures up to a specific size. In this case, I used the Fat Quarter size.
What was your first impression of the fabric organizers?
“…what are these for?”
How do they work?
You start by folding your fabrics into a long strip about the width of the Fabric Organizers. Then, simply insert the ends of your fabric under the triangle ‘clips’ of the tool and start rolling it up. When you’re done, you’ll have a uniform-sized pile of fabrics. For those of us who are a little OCD about fabric folding and uniformity, these organizers are awesome. I love the way my fabric looks in them! Plus, if you just want to slide out the Fabric Organizer to use on another piece of fabric, just don’t slide the fabric into the triangle ‘clips’ when you start rolling your fabric on it. That way you can reuse your Fabric Organizers.
How long did it take you to learn how to use it?
Just a minute or so.
What did you like best?
The lightweight, but sturdy feel of the plastic.
Could you see another potential use?
Yes! I think you could use the Fabric Organizers to roll up selvages, ribbon, or strips of fabric.
Who would appreciate a fabric organizer the most?
These are perfect for:
- Beginner, intermediate, and expert quilters
- Anyone acquiring the essential quilting tools
Where can I see this tool in action?
