I thought I would share a few of my sewing projects today. I have only been sewing about 6 months and am still not very good, but I wanted to share my craft room set up and a few things I have sewn.
|a few little touches to call it mine own|
|This is the basic set up of my sewing room, I love being able to sew and look out of the bay windows|
|That's Georgia, she helps, a lot, this is the sewing desk we found on walmart.com, the panel with the cubbys can fold into the footing part and the table folds down so it's smaller|
|This is how I store my fabric/supplies, I add a fabric softner sheet as well to keep everything smelling fresh.|
|my thread organizer|
|I have these to store fabric or if I am working on a project I can put the according pieces in the cube and keep organized. These are from Thirty-One (which I also sell, if you would like to buy something please let me know!)|
|My first project. My husband is a locksmith and found this fabric, I had no pattern, just "winged it", I put a throw pillow from a bedding set in it instead of stuffing.|
|I had never sewn a zipper either!|
|a pair of sleep pants|
|This is an apron I made, again, no pattern, just kind of went with it.|
|I have mastered the sleep pants.|
|This was the first time I had attempted a drawstring instead of elastic waist.|
|A pair of sleep pants for my husband|
|my very first pair of sleep pants, obviously I hadn't mastered the length, and it took a lot of stitch ripping, but for no "pattern" and never sewing before, they turned out ok.|
|I used the box my iron came in to put between the wall and the pedal of my sewing machine. I got so tired of it slipping back and having to pull it forward. I have seen people nail down a 2x4 as well, but, this doesn't involve that much effort! :)|
|Fold up iron (and a Georgia and Pete)|
So there ya go, a little insight into my "craft"/sewing room. Te closet holds uayrn for crocheting, and the tale beside my sweing desk is now home to my cricut and computer. I like having a "girl cave". Sometimes I just need to go in there and relax, do my own thing and decompress.
What are your tips/tricks? What is your sewing room like?
