When my husband and I first got married, I started a sewing school and gave lessons to children out of my home. I turned one of our rooms into a cute little space and I enjoyed having an area away from everything else to work in. As our own children came along I decided to stop giving lessons and eventually turned my sewing room into a toy room. This meant that all of my sewing stuff was then moved to the basement where I had it until we moved. I didn’t mind working in the basement, but I missed having a cheery place to organize and sew in.
One of the most exciting things about our new house is that it has a bright office with a large window. We decided this would be my sewing studio and I once again have a cheery area to sew in. I’ve shared a few pictures of my room on Instagram already, but I thought today I would share a more in-depth look at it, now that it is all complete!The cabinets are from Ikea and are the perfect storage units for just about everything. The glass doors keep dust (and children!) off of my fabrics and supplies, and there are plenty of shelving and drawers which makes it so easy to keep everything organized and tidy.
Of course, I added a few hanging spool softies to add some color and fun. You can find the tutorial for them here.The wall below is the sad beginning of my mini quilt wall. I am hoping to add to it and fill it up in the near future.The sewing cart and table may be the handiest of all. It opens up to allow me to sew and cut at it and easily moves when I need it to. I was a little hesitant to buy it at first because of the quality of the brand, but I have to say I am absolutely in love with it. It is much sturdier than I expected and adds even more storage. You can buy it here.On the wall opposite, I have the children’s desks and pre-schooling set up. That allows me to keep them busy and do a little sewing at the same time, which is a win-win for all of us!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
