I took some shots of the sewing room. It’s coming along very nicely though I’m definitely in need of more shelves. I don’t have room to sort the fabric the way I want to either. So I’m going to have to rethink that one.

Here are some progress photos:

I lined the drawer of the desk with some scrapbook paper. I didn’t do a very good job but that’s ok. I need to get more of these plastic container things. I picked them up at the dollar store and they’re perfect!

As you can see here, the shelves are actually a bit shorter than the space. I’m hoping I can get precut shelves that will fit snugly in there but either way I don’t quite have enough room so I have to rethink my organization. That’s not all the fabric I have either…

I’ve had this bookshelf (it’s a pair, the other is in my mother’s room now) forever. They’re cheap and wobbly and not the most ideal things in the world but they work ok. I’ve still got to organize what’s on the shelves and I have many binders filled with patterns that I need to put on there if they’ll even fit. I’ve got all my sewing books on there too and some magazines as well as the patterns that I’ve purchased that aren’t pdf format patterns in that little wicker basket. I actually have a bunch more patterns that my friend Krista bought, all vintage, that are in my bedroom closet. I’m going to store them separately and who knows, maybe one day I’ll actually make some of those clothes.

I took some photos of some things that my mother found and gave to me as well. The first is a metal box that is filled with needles! If you ever want a needle, I’m your gal! Seriously, check this out, it’s crazy…

Then there was this box. It’s filled with beads and a mint condition beaded handbag. I’m going to have to teach myself to do beading next!

  1. How fantastic to have a whole room like this for sewing projects! I would love to just shut the door until projects are completed rather than cleaning up at the end of each day 🙂
