If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed a confession of a photograph, an extremely untidy craft room. Not only has my
tot son started school we temporally have father in law living with us. This has necessitated the removal of crafting items and Etsy stock from the spare room and a rather large sort out of the craft room.
My intention was to put away all works in progress, except the actual project in hand on the day.. sadly this intention did not last long!
This week I have been focussing on making up knitting needle cases to add stock to my Etsy shop.
I have created a corner ready for packaging and posting. Lets hope the Christmas sales come in!!
Next up on the side a top partially cut out, this is viscose crepe which I have never sewn before. It will stretch my sewing skills, as this is for myself this is on the back burner for the moment.
A selection of fat quarters from Andover Fabrics. I’m thinking of creating a fabric roll for storing leads for tablet, DSLR, ebook etc… At the moment we have two rather messy drawers of leads.
And lastly some felted jumpers and mugs, I have a kernel of an idea to create mug cozy’s marketted as thank you teachers gifts. The plan is to add a quote “appreciate the small things” or similar.
What are you busy working on at the moment? Hopefully you are little more focussed than myself!!
I don’t know about you but I fight(ignore) a constant battle re the volume of “stuff” in my sewing space.
A few months back my husband hit upon the idea of fitting kitchen units for storing all my fabric in, sadly I fail to keep my stash down enough to be able to successfully put it away and shut the doors! The long length of kitchen work top is fab for laying out patterns, and bags in process, however I fail to tick to one project at a tiem so it becomes cluttered.
Here are a few snapshots with some sewing studio ideas for storage (of course I would never move stuff around in order to take the pictures!!). I am fortunate to have lots of light, overlooking the garden.
I currently store my threads in a former fishing tackle box, but would love to have an old printing press tray mounted on the walls filled:)
Rather like Katherines🙂
Store my buttons, colour coded in glass jars
Generally I am not sentimental however this room hold memories,; this basket was woven, and lined by my Gran, and the flowers made by my then four year old.
The tin boxes were also my Grans, and contain yet more buttons (again Grans). My gran passed away when I was 18, I remember her with great affection and as a kindred spirit, she was very influential encouraging my creativity,
How do you organise your work space, I am particularly interested in ideas for reducing quantities of fabric?!
