Sewing Spaces or Where The Magic Happens.
I mentioned I was organizing my sewing spaces in early September.
It has been finished for a month now and I love it. It is my sewing cave at night.
It took me a long time to get it organized. Also I needed to be space conscientious. The area measures 9ft x 11ft. It is quite small.
I reinvented my sewing space for under $100.
Anyway here is the Mess of Great Proportion before.
The beautiful, calm, organized, awesome, space ever after. Until it gets really messy again
Pink wall table; Great Grandma Johnsen.
I store a bunch of things in plastic containers so I can see fabric colors, quilts and blankets, ect.
I really, really love to use vintage suitcases for storage and suitcases are less expensive than plastic. Silly! I paid between $3-5 for each suitcase for a total of $18.
There is an abundance of vintage suitcase in Utah, so I limit myself to collecting brown, white, and blue. The inside must be in good condition.
Chicken wire stapled into the wall holds my notions and fun things I like.
The table was thrifted years ago.
Awesomely the wood paneling was this pink color when we bought our home.
The wood shelf is a built in. Another house surprise!
A second built in. The two green chairs were salvaged off the curbside. The only thing I did to the chairs was clean them and put a kitty sticker on them to spruce 'em up a bit.
I sew on my kitchen table. I love the natural light in my kitchen. I have a east facing window and a south one. I don't machine sew in the evening. In the evening I do handwork and misc. projects in my sewing cave. Oliver and Freya are welcome to play with me in my sew cave. I like it best when it is just me, the silence and some really good tunes.
