A lot of people have taken advantage of more time at home during the pandemic to learn new hobbies and start small businesses. For example, some have learned how to sew. Individuals who have taken up this hobby or who already knew how to do it have decided to turn it into a small business. If this is something that you have decided to do, here is some information about why you should make a fabric swatch book.
After you collect a lot of fabric, it can be difficult to track the fabric, especially when it comes to knowing which fabric has been prewashed and which fabric has not been prewashed. Some individuals even prewash their fabric multiple times without realizing it. If you make a fabric swatch book, you can easily keep track of the fabric.
A swatch of fabric is a small piece of fabric. You can make this swatch book from fabric you already have in your collection. You can also order swatch books from fabric shops and wholesalers online. This is a beneficial thing to do when you are working on new projects and are thinking about investing in new fabric.
Consider the idea of creating a quilt. Before you buy fabric online or spend a lot of time going from store to store, you can look at swatch books that have already been made. This will give you a better idea of the colors that are used and the feel of the fabric. This will prevent you from wasting fabric.
