Sharing my newest sewing space
We almost never have anyone over for dinner, nor do we sit at a dinner table regularly in our house. So, I re-purposed our dining space to be a sewing space for me. I also have two desks and switched back to the smaller desk for keyboard room which leaves the larger desk to act as a cutting table. It is just the right size! The pantry to the right of the cleaning closet (bi-fold door) is huge and contains much of my fabric, patterns, and other sewing stuff. Not much food is in my pantry! Hope you enjoy this little tour...
|Sewing area. When sewing, I set up the ironing board on the brown rug so that I can swivel in my rolling desk chair to press while sewing.|
|Sewing machine on the table Mom gave me. It's got a handy raised section to the left so that fabric is better supported.|
|Supply cart and bulletin board. This blocks a cleaning closet and since the cart is on wheels, it is easy enough to roll it out of the way should I want to vacuum or mop.|
|Desk drawers - left contains tools and rotary cutters and the center drawer (keyboard tray) has my rulers and seam roll. All but one huge ruler fit into the drawer.|
|Closeup of next two projects - a zipping wallet and a blouse with a faux cowl out of a soft, rosy rayon from Walmart.|
