Last month I shared a couple of posts about my sewing studio and how I have been really trying to clean it up. I am so happy with how it is coming along.
My set up of baskets for projects is working out well… except for recently, when I suddenly had “squirrel!!!!” syndrome and added another new project to the mix.
And had no basket for it.
So it ended up on the cutting table.
Sigh. I don’t think I can ever fix that. Adding another project to the ever growing pile is just something quilters do. Or at least, something this quilter does!
But the quilt top is done and off to the quilter!
Recently, I went thru all my fabric bins and really cleaned them out. I was able to donate a large amount of fabric and still have lots left to play with.
Fun Sewing Room Decor
Now it is time to decorate the studio a little!
I may have mentioned before that I don’t have a lot of wall space, but I do like to add a few fun pieces to the little bit of wall I do have.
On the wall near my cutting table, I have had this quilt little hanging for a while. And my design wall always has new and different things on it!
Over in the corner I have these fun decorations. I change out the little quilt often; sometimes I have one my small banners hanging from it that represent the season.
Right now the small quilt I have there is Harbor Lights– one of my patterns.
It’s perfect to celebrate Memorial Day and 4th of July! I won’t have to make a change to the wall or my little table downstairs until after that! Little quilts are a great way to add some flair to your sewing studio decor!
Another way to add some fun but functional decorations to my sewing space, and yours, would be to make some sewing organizers!
I asked a couple of my designer friends for their favorite pattern to add some functionality with flair and here they are:
This is Joanne of Fat Quarter Gypsy’s newest pattern called Sew Organized and already it is a top seller!
Wouldn’t this be a fun thing to make for your sewing area? Click here if you want to check out her pattern.
And my friend Kris of Poorhouse Designs has this great pattern for scalloped baskets!
I would love to have one of these on my table near my sewing machine to catch all the little tools that seem to wander.. my awl, my small snips, my “Jack” the ripper…..
TV Time Pincushion
And who doesn’t need a cute new pincushion? My friend Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis has this cute pattern for wool retro tv pincushions.
Aren’t they adorable??? I really have to make one of these..
