My Little Sewing Space



I thought I would share a few pictures of my hang-out space, the place where I sew and do other crafty stuff.   


It's located in the far end of the master bedroom, hidden behind a wall of curtains.
 
I recently made a curtain for the 10 ft. conference table wedged in here.  The laminate strip on the edge of the craigslist table was coming off and I thought of this way to hide it and anything below also!

The sofa takes up a lot of valuable space, but the kids sit there whenever I'm in here and hang out with me, and I'd rather have them around than more stuff.  My tech son set up speakers so I can have music from my phone in the center. Very convenient!
Any smidge of blank wall has some sort of framed picture or shelf or perhaps a hanging plate.  One of the above prints is a grandmother teaching sewing, which I thought fitting for my space, and the other is Paul Newman, doing a bit of stitchwork himself!

The other side of the room holds my antique drafting table and paints and paper supplies.
Jars of cut strips for logs cabin crafts, yo-yos, embroidery floss, etc.  And always cubbies!  The quilt on the shelf on the right is a pad for the cat who hangs out there.
My large metal shelf unit from Lowes, holding the ever-changing collection of supplies.  The shoe-holder holds trims and other essentials.  At the bottom is my own tool bag from Handy Hubby, so I would quit taking tools out of his garage workspace.

  The C-R-E-A-T-E letters were on clearance at Michael's.  I thought the style and colors suited my space.
 My cutting table is a 1970's formica topped craigslist kitchen table.  Some of the chairs that came with it are now in my daughter-in-law's sewing room that I posted about recently.



I have a desk chair that I use at both tables and it is up next for a make-over!  Somebody needs a slipcover ASAP.


 I use the plastic from a poster frame that broke to protect my cutting mat from Mod Podge and paint.
And of course, the little sheep, Dante and Papa, are here all of the time, hanging out.  Papa needs a leg repair that I have to get to.  They're really starting to naaaag me about it..


I love my little space and it's a great out-of-the-way place to tinker with a new project.  Organizing supplies is always an ongoing project in itself, but being able to find things when I want them is a huge relief.  (Searching through rubbermaid bins like I did when the kids were little?  Oh I don't miss that.)


Hope you enjoyed the tour.

What a terrific space! And so very organized, too. Kudos to you for that! One of these days I'll have myself a crafty/sewing space where I can leave my sewing machine set up and have all my supplies close at hand. Or at least I keep telling myself that. :)

I really enjoy peeking into other people's creative spaces - and yours is fabulous, in my opinion! (I don't believe you mentioned the curtains/drapes. I like them.) The pictures on the wall are so interesting - eclectic, which is my favorite style :)

How warm and inviting and peaceful. I see and feel the love. I'm currently working in my Guest Suite/craft and sewing space. I'm so very grateful to have them BOTH!

Great space, Cathy! I love that huge table you have to work on. I wish I had room for a large table, but I'm just thankful I have an actual little room to use now. In our old house I had a corner in our garage! You should link this up in July to the Where Blogger's Create linky party at My Desert Cottage.
