Step 3 : Categorizing
Create subsections for your catalog using fabric types, attributes, or colour. These header cards will help in indexing the swatches. Whatever works for you. I decided on a mix of types and attributes.
Step 4 : Attach Swatches
Tape swatches to the card and add a brief description of the fabric (See above). Include whatever information you find useful. I tend to include a basic colour description, material type (silk, cotton, etc.), and stretch information if necessary (2-way, 4-way, slight stretch). If I used a fabric for a specific costume in the past, I also include that in the description section. It creates a great point of reference.
Blank cards can be used to keep track of scrap fabric - shorter pieces not worth measuring.
