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.
I 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.
I 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.
Snap 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.
