I have a free diy Color Card download to share with you today.
Do you ever want to track what fabrics you used for a project or wish you had a color card? I started tracking my projects and fabrics with my own diy color card and it’s a great reference that I go back to… a lot! I have two methods to my madness…
First I like to track the solids I use. When I purchase any solids, I snip off a piece of the selvage and add them to my own diy color card. This way when I want to refer back to them or need to purchase more of a color, I have a sample to go to. This is especially helpful with solids since there is no information on the selvage to refer back to later.
I also use this diy color card for projects. When I start a project I like to make note (or a card) of all the fabrics I’m using ~ sometimes I run out of a fabric I need and the project might sit for a while (sounds familiar right?) then when I go back to it I don’t always remember what I used… no worries, I can just check the project color card.
Here is one I made for a holiday quilt I was working on…
I use a glue stick to stick the samples on ~ easy and works great!
Then I put them all in a binder neatly tucked away!
I hope some of you find this useful too! There are two versions in the PDF, one for solids or general fabric tracking and one for projects.
