I love to see other crafter's work spaces. So here's mine if you're interested.
I have one more little project I'd like to add, but it may not happen for a long time, so this is pretty much it.
The room is so small, I can't really get one photo of everything.
Some of my favorites on this wall:
All the colorful thread, at the perfect height to make it easy to change colors when I need to, because I am lazy about matching thread.
Next to my sewing machine I have my thread snippers, so much easier and quicker than scissors to snip threads after each seam!
Magnetic pin holder.
Clay vase thing I made in 8th grade that's big and thick to hold scissors, seam gauge, pens, etc.
My sewing machine: Bernina 1120.
I was raised on my mom's Bernina 1130, which is the same machine but has more stitches and is just fancier.
I found this machine on craigslist for a reasonable price, and since it's an all metal Bernina, it should last me the rest of my life...as long as I break down and pay for regular maintenance which I need to do.
LAMP! The cool bronze architect lamp was a gift from my little sister Lynette, who saw it at a thrift store for $6.00 and knew I'd love it.
All the ribbon odds and ends not on spools I keep in jars. The fish bowl shaped one was from the thrift store for $1.00, the other two I had already.
These are actually all from my husband's grandma. She collected buttons and when she passed away, his mom gave me a few of her junk buttons.
Jars from thrift stores. These jars with rubber fitted lids were more expensive, $1.50 each.
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SEWING MACHINE:
As a kid I used it as my dirty laundry, then shoe storage, and different things, and now it holds my "projects to do".
My mom made this little wood box and I keep my tailor chalk in there.
Another magnetic pin holder.
You may be wondering:
WHAT'S WITH ALL THE CRAP UNDER THE CUTTING TABLE?
Well I use it to store:
That's about it. You can see my serger tucked in the corner, another craigslist purchase for $40. It's a classic Bernette. I think I was able to snag it so cheap because the seller didn't know what it was or what it did, that was a great find.
So I'm impressed you made it this far! It's small, but I feel like I've made the most of every nook and cranny to make the space workable. I also have the average sized closet full of stuff too.
Now this space will shortly become a sweat shop with superhero cape production for my Etsy shop that is currently empty. I'm kind of getting sick of superhero capes.
