ArtBin® Fabric Strip Case

I was recently asked by ArtBin®, who supplied me with this sample to review the ArtBin® Fabric Strip Case. Here are my thoughts:

I decided quite quickly that I would prepare a project to take on the road once my husband and I  decide to get our travel trailer ready for travel this Spring. I had a jelly roll of interesting fabrics that I intended to work with and the Fabric Strip case would be perfect. As space is limited in a travel trailer and while accessing an ironing board is certainly not impossible, being prepared always makes a project go just a bit faster. Following this line of thinking,  I decided to prep everything ahead of time and the Fabric Strip case would be the answer to storing everything together neatly.

IMG_3237I opened up the case and removed the clips. You can see where I was testing just how the strips would fit into the case. Of course they fit perfectly with just a bit of extra room.

IMG_3235I laid out my strips according to the order in which they would be sewn, starting with the last strip to be added to the project. I then pressed each strip to remove the center crease and touch up the ends. I carefully laid the first strip into the case.

IMG_3239I continued pressing and adding strips, ending with the first strip of the project. I then slid the clips into place. Do not press down too tightly on the clips as you do not want to add creases to your prepped fabric.

IMG_3241Snap the lid closed and everything is ready to pack. I will probably add my project notes and thread to the container. I removed the label from my case but honestly wish I had not as I know I will be asked where I got my case.  I do recommend that you add a label with your name and contact information as sewing in trailer parks sometimes means going to a common room for more space, light and company and things might get left behind.

Enjoy,
