Thrifty ways to organise the sewing room..
Welcome to my sewing room, please stay and have a look around:)
I am extremely blessed to have a sewing room. When we first bought our home, it had a wonderful 1970’s orange and brown carpet. It was a bit of a nothing room, rarely used except for storage. At six months pregnant with a whole house to decorate it was not high on our priority list. However with my brothers help it gained several coats of white paint and a new carpet, prior to the baby arriving. A sofa bed was bought and it became a study/ spare bedroom.
My fabric stash expanded, and, well expanded! It’s fair to say it drove my husband nuts.. one date night was spent brainstorming effective, thrifty, storage solutions – kitchen units are the answer!
So whats the room like now? What are my thrifty solutions?
Kitchen units – inside the fabric is stored in either types of fabric, or works in progress.
Jam jars – great for buttons, as well as my Gran’s old tins, you can never have too many buttons!!
Wicker laundry baskets are used for fabric – from a local 99p store
A fishing tackle box for threads, little tupperware boxes are sued too for safety pins etc..
Fabric storage baskets, thanks Pam for a great tutorial – these are perfect for bits and pieces!
Denim pockets for storing sharp scissors away from the tot:)
In the UK, no matter how good I am about taking bags to the store, I always end up with plastic bags. These are great for storing various projects.
What’s your favourite way of storing crafting supplies?
As usual I am off to check out fellow Handmade Harbour creative:)
One big thanks to my Mum for helping me tidy and sort (don’t ask when I started drafting this post, but the room was just not tidy enough to take pics!)
