Sewing Room In Progress
This was my sewing room three weeks ago:
Those are boxes of patterns and fabric filling the closet. There are stacks of boxes on either side of the boxes that you can see. There are also some more boxes that didn’t fit in the closet, but we won’t mention those…right?
This was my sewing room two weeks ago:
I moved the bookshelf to the other wall in the corner. It is now filled with my sewing books, design school binders, and magazines. The bookshelf is an inexpensive wood one that was in the closet of our home office in Los Angeles. I’m planning on putting some nails or hooks into the side so that I can hang my pattern drafting tools from it. The dress form didn’t fare very well in the move but I’ll eventually stabilize it.
I moved the shelves so that I could put a small chest of drawers to the right of my sewing machine. If I didn’t move the shelves, I wouldn’t have been able to open up the top of the cabinet!
As you can see, there is still much to be done–including clearing all of that stuff off of the top of the cabinet! Eventually, I will buy a couple of dressers with deep drawers from a thrift shop to store the patterns. I’m also playing with a few ideas on how to store/display the fabric in the long run but for short term, I will hang them up in the closet like I did when I lived in Indiana.
I have some studying to do this weekend for a workshop I’m facilitating next week but we don’t have any other plans. I’m pretty sure that I’ll also be able to make the room sewing-usable, even though it won’t be Pinterest Perfect.*
*Did I just coin a phrase? Or is it already out there?
