As promised, here are the pics of my sewing room. This is as tidy as it is going to get I think. I’m totally an organized person by nature and you’ll definitely see some of that here…which is why it has been driving me crazy that is has been so disorganized lately. But there’s nothing like trying to sell your house to make you clean up!
The view from the doorway! It makes a big difference that there is nothing on the floor! That’s my biggest problem…leaving projects on the floor.
As you walk into the room, you are greeted first with my ironing board complete with a certain zig-zag quilt in progress. I promise that the quilt is never far from my mind and there are great plans ahead.
You’ve all seen the design wall. It’s in a pretty constant state of flux. Some things you will recognize and others are newer additions. There’s even another thing on there now that wasn’t there for these pics!
Next comes my bookcase which is storage for all my sewing and quilting books and patterns. It also houses the tv and dvd player which help with some distraction when sewing for hours at a time.
I have a little pullout couch for extremely last-minute guests and in the window is my color book. It’s looking all cute for potential buyers. 😉
Alrighty…here we come to the fabric. No judging. lol. I know that there is a bit there. I also know that I’m not even going to show you all it. All of this fabric I have stored using the comic book backer board which I have a tutorial for. (although really it’s just folding the fabric around a piece of sturdy something – not rocket science)
The lower half just makes me smile! It’s a rainbow of beautiful fabrics. And yes, you may notice that I have a penchant for a couple of colors.
The upper half stores home dec fabrics on the tippy top. I have to get my husband to put them up there. lol. I’m short. Then it’s mainly neutrals stored on the shelves. Do you notice a color that I am lacking the most of?
Those cabinets in the middle store my precious fabrics…some of these may move to my lovely Henna Garden Boxes though. It’s getting a little crazy in there!
Next, I have a little wall space where I have hung all of my mini quilts and mug rugs that I’m too afraid to use. lol. Thanks to PioneerValleyGirl, Cilvee, FlossieBlossoms, and SewVivid for these! The ones you don’t see here that I have received are scattered throughout my house.
Then comes the area that is definitely the hardest to keep tidy (other than the floor!). This table houses all the things that come into the sewing room that don’t really have a home. It’s okay for now but there will be some revamping in my next sewing room. And under the table, the white drawers are storage for my scraps. Yes…I have a lot and yes, I use them every day!
Next you see a bookcase all filled with storage. This currently houses things like fat quarters and sewing notions. And above it, you will see thread and quilts ready to be quilted!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little trip through my sewing space. It’s so nice to work in when it is cleaned up and a little overwhelming when it is not. Suggestions? Tips? I’m always looking for ways to improve this room or the concept of this room.
