Last week I shared with you the ‘before’ pictures of my sewing/creating area – unedited. With promises of showing you the revamp.
‘Before’ I couldn’t even walk into the corner area hear. I had to move ten million things just to get the one thing I wanted. Now things are much more organized and able to get at.
And look – there’s not a pile of random things in front of my area anymore! The fabric is all put away, my books are all organized, garbage is all thrown away, and I’m ready to create some amazing things this year! Although I despise having to re-organize/clean each year it really does feel good once I’m done with it.
And here it is in use – all 8 feet by 8 feet of wonderful flannel over foam. I’m loving it!
If you watched my blog last year you know that I did a massive reorganization of my fabrics. I wrapped my fat quarters and yards onto boards by Polar Notions.
I’m happy to say that even though it wasn’t the most inexpensive thing I’ve ever done it really worked well to keep me organized! Look at how beautiful these shelves still look! It makes it so much easier to pull fabrics for projects and it’s secretly fun to wrap my fabrics on the boards. Also – it’s easy for me to see if there are certain fabric colors (like green) that I should avoid buying more of.
What have you done to your sewing room that has made a big difference in keeping things in order? (For instance – do you have any suggestions for rulers and thread …?)
