This is my new sewing room! I had to remove the single (spare) bed by the window in order to accommodate my sewing tables, equipment, dress form etc. The whole room has been transformed. I will now take you on a tour!
Here are my ornaments of a cute angel, a vintage style decorative mannequin from a charity shop and a ‘Singer’ style sewing machine from Homebase.
The great thing about sewing by the window is the light! Prior to the makeover, my table had been in a dark corner at the other end of the room and I had to rely on a lamp.
A Shabby Chic display stand from Amazon with crafted hearts. See my Lavender Heart post.
Laura Ashley boxes containing trims and ribbons. The boxes have sewing images on them i.e. sewing machine, needle, thread, scissors, tape measure and buttons. There is also a fabric storage bin from TK Maxx which contains fabric scraps.
I have an Arrow 601 sewing table with an inbuilt platform (to adjust to a flatbed position) and a small Shabby Chic painted table for my overlocker.
This chalk board from a pine furniture store has a sewing theme. On the table is my sewing tin (a biscuit tin) containing bits and bobs and a Cath Kidston pencil sharpener.
A vintage style ‘Sew it Yourself’ metal sign from Amazon.
Here is the corner in which I used to have my sewing table. It is now my ‘calm and pray’ corner. Instead of Julia Robert’s ‘Eat, Pray and Love’, it is ‘Sew, Calm and Pray’.
This is a fabric memo board which I made using an artist’s canvas, oilcloth, wadding/batting, ribbon and buttons. I had to sew the buttons onto the fabric/ribbon. There are tutorials on Youtube.
A bookcase from IKEA for displaying some ornaments which I had received as gifts. Also on display are tins of buttons/beads and a box containing binding tape.
A Cath Kidston sewing box and a storage trunk for fabric from TK Maxx.
I love to see other women’s sewing rooms. I hope you enjoyed the tour and that you may have been inspired.
