I am so pleased today to be participating in a BLOG HOP with some other really wonderful blogs! We have all banded together to bring you some wonderful inspiration – can you guess what we might all be sharing with you today?
If you guessed that this blog hop is about Sewing Spaces, then you guessed right! So without further ado here is mine…
As you can see it isn’t the largest space, but it isn’t the smallest either…my old space was smaller 😉
I design all my sewing patterns in this space. The empty surface you see above, I try to keep clear so I can use that space for progress photos for my patterns and tutorials. I usually don’t cut my fabric in this room however, as the clear part of the desk isn’t the right height for cutting…so I usually use our kitchen table for that (not pictured).
Next to my desk is a small filing cabinet. The 1st two draws store stationary items. The bottom draw holds my fleece (mainly H640). You can see my roll of Medium weigh interfacing stands next to the draws, and I also have my soft and stable folded and stored against the wall here too. On top of the cabinet sits my printer.
Under my main desk is were I store the majority of my bulky stuff. I have 2 tubs (stacked) full of leather. I also store 2 sewing machines next to the tubs (these cant be seen in the photo). At the back you will see my rolls of leather and vinyl, and my cutting boards are leaning against the wall.
On my desk you will see my Juki TL-98P and my Grandmothers Vintage Singer 201k (that was recently gifted to me).
Behind my Juki TL-98P are my hardware tubs that store the majority of my hardware that I use when designing my bags.
On the other side of my desk I have some shelving. On the top shelf you will see my scrap boxes that hold my smaller scraps that have been sorted by colour. The middle shelf houses knic-knacs as well as my tools (rotary cutters, scissors, etc.) and those pink boxes you see on the left are where I keep my rivets, eyelets, metal snaps, charms for zipper pulls and wonder clips. The bottom shelf stores some notebooks, pencil cases and other tools. At the back of the shelf (not shown in the photo) is a little set of draws, it stores my threads, and more bag hardware.
Next to the shelving is my fabric cupboard…
Inside houses all my fabrics.
On the left (top to bottom) you will find:
fleece and fur; larger scraps (and smaller scraps that I haven’t sorted into the scrap tubs yet); fat 1/4’s and fat 1/8’s; the next 2 shelves are WIP’s and the bottom shelf is sewing books.
On the right (top to bottom) you will find:
drill, denim and homespun; 1/2 yards; yardage; kids prints; vintage and knit fabrics and the bottom shelf houses sewing magazines and folders full of PDF patterns.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my sewing space!
