It's not a fabric stash, it's a creativity generator!
Here's my melon after a little brushing. I can dig it. It was pretty easy to do and showering at night is easier with an active three year old anyway.
The brushing out was always the hardest part for me to get the hang of. I love pin curls and rag curls, especially because its easy to fix my hair the next morning while the kids are running around.
