I always love to see where some of my favorite designers and crafters create their fabulous works. Well, Kathy over at Pink Chalk Studio is hosting a “Where I Sew” party. She is featuring some of our favorite designers’ sewing rooms. So, I thought I would join in on the fun!
This first picture is from the doors looking into my sewing machine. You can go here to see the tutorial on these curtains.
Here is the corner nook in my sewing room that holds all the good stuff. This is a shelving unit from ikea that has 16 separate cubbies. This shelving unit is about 8 years old and probably cannot be moved again, but it works perfect. You can still find them at Ikea. I keep stash here and all the things that I like to look at and daydream. The framed print on the left side of the photo is from the Jacqueline Kennedy exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago. I was lucky enough to go to the exhibit where they had the most amazing display of many of her famous outfits from her days in the White House. One of my most prized possessions….
Close up of my stash…and books. I organize my stash primarily by color, but sometimes have a hard time with that. I tend to love stripes and dots so I am inclined to separate them out, but have not done that yet. I do keep the seasonal fabrics like Christmas and Halloween separate as well as flannels and wools.
Just a few details….
Here is the inside of the closet….another Ikea shelving unit on the bottom and random organizing bins on top. I bought the thread holder at an antique store. Love it! By the way, the Ikea storage unit barely fit….I had to wiggle it into place at an angle after a slight tantrum! (ask my husband…or maybe not)
Here’s the other half of my sewing room. The two baskets I use to hold magazines and other things I like to keep handy. They are about 15 years old and came from Pottery Barn. I use the bulletin board as my dream wall / idea wall.
Here’s my sewing table…it is about 8 years old and I got it at Pier One on sale … it is a big sturdy table which is great.
Ironing board and other stuff….the shelf above the ironing board was really meant for a bathroom, but I decided it looked better here. And, it works great.
And, here’s the view from the sewing machine….
One day, this room will get a laminate or woof floor and that light fixture you see will be replaced with a funky chandelier!
Hope you enjoyed my place to create! You can check out all the other great sewing rooms by clicking here.
