Fabric Swatch Display Idea

While at my local Ikea this weekend, I got some cool ideas for setting up my sewing area.  One of the “rooms” they have set up in the Workspace area is modeled after a sewing/craft studio, complete with a hacked cutting table, inspiration board, and lots of counter space along the walls.  I particularly loved the idea of using their Finlir photo frame to display fabric swatches.  The 12 pages of the photo frame would be great for holding together swatches of fabric for a quilt or a collection of garments.  It would be easy to flip through the swatches to see if the fabrics chosen would make a cohesive project or not.  Or, display certain swatches of fabric as art in your studio.  This is definitely something I’m going to try!
