I saw this tutorial on making your own small fabric bolts over at The Little Green Bean but hadn't fully committed to doing it until I saw my friend Brie over at Two of a Kind working on a full house do her own fabric. I found the foam core at the dollar store and my husband (the awesome guy he is) cut it for me on my quilting board with my fabric wheel and quilt ruler. After folding and wrapping the fabric onto the foam core I used a straight pin to keep it from unrolling.
Now when I need something everything doesn't get knocked over and unfolded
Some of the smaller "scrap" fabric I keep for silhouette projects, baby projects, small projects I folded and placed in a gallon size ziplock
