My New Sewing Space
After 2 months, I've finally got my sewing space set up! I can't tell you how much of a relief this is, because for a while there, I thought I'd have to give up sewing until I moved to a larger space (and that won't be for a long while).
For those who don't know, I'm renting a room in someone's house. My roommate is awesome, but there's no room anywhere else for me to store stuff, much less set up a sewing space. So I had to convert my bedroom into a very organized working space. You can see how I've organized the space below, including the arrangement, the storage I've come up with (so far), and the way's that I can convert it to a sewing area. (Click to see full size if you can't read the writing.)
I'm so excited to get back to sewing! I love my new knitting hobby, but sewing will always be my first love.
This will, of course, be a dynamic space. I'll always be on the look out for ways to improve the space and make this easier. I admit, I'm a messy person in general; keeping this space organized is going to be a challenge. So far though, everything has a space (even if it's in the big miscellaneous basket), and that's half the battle right there.
Are any of your sewing or crafting spaces shared with other essential (or non-essential) parts of your home? What kind of creative storage solutions have you come up with? And more importantly, how do you keep your space tidy?!
