Sew this has been a loooong time coming! I was scrolling my IG timeline and saw a post of my sewing space back in December 2017 and the caption read, “I promise to blog about it for you all who want deets.” So here I am a year later… as promised lol. I am now working on adding some machines into the mix as well. I was just given an older BabyLock Esente a few weeks ago and I cannot wait to get it up and running and I will also own a brand new sewing machine very soon. Oh yes! I am also looking for a custom dress form so if you have suggestions for one please leave it below in the comments! Enough small talk lets get to why you are really here!
All of my furniture in my sewing room is from Ikea! Let’s begin with my favorite part of my sewing room. This is where I store a majority of my fabric- just did a major clearing out of some fabrics that I will post for sale over on my Instagram. The frames can be found here and the basket inserts can be found here. In
You can find similar buckets in your local Wal Mart, Dollar Tree or craft store. I use these buckets to store all my writing utensils, marking tools, smaller sewing tools, i.e: seam ripper, seam gauge and chalk. I also use one to store all of my different sewing tags. I got the magnetic giraffe from Target and it’s one of my favorites- cleans up pins real quick. I like to display current projects on the board because sometimes some things really do seem impossible until it’s done!
I picked out the legs and tabletop individually to get the exact look I was going for. The table top measures 61×29 1/2 ” and can be found here. The legs are only $50 and they come in two different colors here! I have attached two lamps on the table ends and those can be found here. The first time around I got silver/gray lights but when I went back for lights for my cutting table they were all gone so I got white ones which I like better!
For my spools of
I wanted a place in my sewing room where I could place a list of things that need to be done,
The shelving unit above is a Kallax unit from Ikea and it came with a desk attatchment that I no longer use– it was my first sewing “table”. You can buy just the shelving unit here. My
My ironing board was my Christmas gift in 2017 from my sister! It is very large and has a few added features I love. You can get yours here from Bed Bath & Beyond! I also bought a cheap ($1.29!) trash can from Ikea which I use to store my interfacing and batting.
I got a stand to place in my sewing room to display some of my beautiful makes and it is actually very motivating when I look over and see how much I have done!
On the left is the starter machine that I purchased back in January 2014. Mimi G recommended the Brother cs6000i and it has worked like a charm for me! I am however getting a Babylock sewing machine in a month or two. On the right is my serger machine which I won at the Mimi G Conference. It is a Babylock Imagine. The table that I have my machines on can be found here and I recommend getting the fifth leg in the middle of the table so that it does not start to dip.
No sewing room is complete without a place to admire your garment while you make it and after it is complete. I purchased this mirror two years ago during a Black Friday sale at Wal Mart. The baskets are used to store my sewing patterns and you can find those here.
