I dream of one day having a whole room dedicated to sewing and crafting. For now I'll have to work with what I've got. Not that what I have is all that shabby. I feel blessed to have as nice of a place as I do. I've never had to live the dorm life or share a room with a stranger. Missing out on the full college experience? Meh I'll take what I've got any day.
My modest sewing area:
Some of you have asked about the machine I use. It's a Kenmore model 43 cabinet style machine from the 60's (I think..) . This was a gift from my grandmother who had it for 20+ years before passing it down to me. I love it. It's certainly nothing fancy and in fact, it only has two stitches; straight and zig-zag. It might be nice to have a few extra stitch choices but I'm not sure I'll ever need the 200 or more choices that newer machines have.
We had our local handyman detach it from the wooden cabinet and construct this nifty little box for it to sit in. Now it's so much more portable and can sit right on my desk!
I don't have a full before picture but this kind of gives you an idea:
Found this pretty bowl at a thrift store. Serves as a perfect place to put my thread!
Maybe my favorite part of the space. A few hours and about 20 glue sticks later, I had this pretty book wreath.
Can't seem to find the tutorial I used for this. If you happen to know, please let me know so I can give credit!
Can you guess which book I used?
My roommate's adorable kitty. Look at those pretty blue eyes.
How perfect is this? And it smells amazing. I haven't even lit it yet and the sweet lemon scent already fills the room.
Double K for my room mate Karen and I.
So now you know! What's your sewing/crating space like?
