Fabric Folding Tutorial
Today I'll be showing you how to fold all your fabric cuts that are a yard or less, down to the same size. This is really helpful for storage and organizing because you can mix yardages. I fold the fabrics in my stash this way and it works great! I think I may have originally seen this method over on Christina's blog.
If you'd to watch all six folds here in one video, or watch the individual videos below:

Fat Quarters, half-yards, and yard sized cuts are folded exactly the same!

This works great for any cut in between 1/4 and 1/2 yard.
How to Fold a 1/2 Yard
How to Fold a 3/4 Yard
This works great for any cut in between 1/2 yard and 1 yard.
How to Fold a 1 Yard
For fat quarters or yardage that has scraps cut out of it, I simply try my best and use an uncut piece as a guide when folding. For my stash, anything that's less than a fat quarter or 1/4 yard I store it in my scrap bin.
