Sewing Space Envy



Has anyone else been following the Studio Spotlight Series by Ellison Lane ?
They have posted Five Days of beautiful Sewing Spaces completed with a chance to enter for a giveaway.
My favorite space is Simple Simon and Co from Day 5. Which is yours?

Here is my Sewing Space.
I have an Ikea table that I purchased for my machine, along with a series of odd containers to hold various notions.  I do most of my cutting on my dining room table which is not ideal but works for now.




 A china cabinet  that was purchased for my last house but doesn't fit well into this house. I use it to store my stash and the drawer for threads, and notions.






On the other side is an assortment of Ikea storage boxes for patterns





I have plans to slowly transform my space as we finish our basement. Until then I will just keep my Pintrest board of sewing rooms. I am lucky to have a dedicated space in my basement but would LOVE to have to a little lighter and prettier.
Anyone else have sewing space envy?

  2. You have a great sewing machine (love Pfaff), a space that you don't have to put away and method of storage too! I sew in a basement - and sometimes have natural lite envy, but with my life & kids I end up sewing when it's dark outside anyway :)

  4. So neat and organized. Please come here and help me with mine! I have a small extra bedroom with a path to the sewing machine. Bins all over the floor, full shelves, etc. I need to open a fabric store!!! Yet, in this crowded mess I accomplish a lot. Think what I could do if it were organized!

  5. It's great to have a dedicated space. Someday you will have more of what you want in a sewing space.

  6. I have been in a basement before....I remember not ever wanting to get much done. I think I only finished one quilt at that time.

  7. Most of us started on the table. lol I sometimes think it's one of ways into this crazy club! I sewed on the table for about 15 years--a long time!
    Thanks for inviting us in!
