Organizing the Fabric Stash

Bob built me a chest/coffee table a few years back, and lately I have been using it to hold my fabric. I, however, couldn't find anything in it because the fabric kept getting all jumbled up in there. Here's how I fixed that issue.
The mess of fabric.

Both of these were designed to hang in a closet. The smaller one for shoes, the larger one for sweaters or something.


After placing the closet organizing things... I have no idea what they're really called... in the chest, I rolled each piece of fabric so that I can place them end-up in the chest. I can now see what colors and prints of fabric that I have.

You could do something like this in a large box, bin, or the bottom of a closet.
