DIY Fabric Swatch Cards // Tutorial
Hi friends, do you have a fabric swatch card that is helpful only until you want to match up certain colors and they are just too far away from each other on the card? I cut up my Kona color card long ago and added a magnetic backing to them for use on my metal peg board. All of my other swatch cards are not set up to easily do this, and today’s project will help you!
I am showing you step by step how to take that fabric swatch card of yours and make it into handy little swatch cards that you can keep organized in a little box or add a magnetic backing to display on a metal pegboard!
For the main example I used a swatch card from Paintbrush Studio Fabrics - Painter’s Palette Solids, follow along to the end to see how you can incorporate the exact same measurements for other cards like Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements / Michael Miller Fabrics Cotton Couture Solids / RJR Fabrics Cotton Supreme Solids.
Below you can see the same measurements used on other fabric companies swatch cards.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! This has been such a big help when planning quilt projects and I hope it helps you as well. Adding a link to my Amazon store where you can find all of the products I used today along with some of my favorite sewing notions. Included in that list is a link to the metal pegboard system I use in my own craft room that I highly recommend.
Thanks for stopping by!
