I’m back in love with my sewing space again and cannot even remember why I moved up to the dining room in the first place. I’m not sure whether to call it a studio or a sewing room, but it’s doesn’t really matter, it’s my space.
I’m big on recycling boxes and keep a few of them around my work area:
One with ready folded and pressed triangles for hanging (saves a lot of time not having to cut and press triangles every time you need them) and one with buttons and little scraps of different fibres
One under the Plexiglas sewing machine table holding things I use all the time
One next to my machine holding threads and scraps (never got around to make one of those pretty fabric ones)
I keep all my almost empty bobbins in a bobbin holder and use them whenever I won’t be bothered by changing the bobbin frequently or just need a seam or two of a colour.
The rest of my bobbins are stored in an inexpensive tackle box in a drawernext to this box with all my machine needles and an empty pill box for used needles
Small pieces of fusible web are stored in a magazine holder; other holders keep patterns and appliqué sheets and different fibres organized.
I have artworks made by friends and loved ones to keep me company like theseand these.
Can you believe I managed to empty 7 of these shelves, and look at them now. However cluttered they might seem though, I know where to find (almost) everything. I’m working on several small gifts at the moment (planning ahead, I’m so proud!!) using the box of scraps on the left for appliqué, the pile in the middle for backgrounds and the one on the right for backings.
Oh, it’s definitely my space!
