Do you have a sewing craft room?
Maybe something like the one above?
I dream of having my very own sewing room. A room to sew and store material, supplies and completed toys, a place to cut out patterns. It would have my computer close by and an area where I could package sales.
I really don't see that dream coming true until a child leaves home. And given that the average age that kids (adults really) leave now is in the 20's, well lets just say, I will be waiting for a while. I have already told my eldest I plan to turn his room into a sewing/craft studio when he leaves. I will be nice and put a day bed in there in case he wishes to stay over night once in a while.
So do you want to see where I create?
Be warned though, I didn't tidy up. It is in its normal chaotic state!
The desk above is a roll top desk (very handy for shutting and hiding all the creative mess). It is in a corner of my lounge room and it is where I am a lot of nights. I do all my hand sewing from here.
This is my 'sewing room', otherwise known as the laundry. Yes, folks all my gorgeous toys are sewn right here. It is actually a very good sized laundry and functions really well as my sewing room. It has loads of natural light and I often have the door open to let in some fresh air and more light. And, yes, that is a basket load of dirty clothes! Told you it wasn't glamerous. It is situated right off the kitchen/family area so very handy postion to escape to whiles doing other things ... sew a crown, feed the kids, check on homework, sew another toy etc.
In the hallway I have a cupboard that I store all my craft items, materials, patterns, stuffing etc in and in another partof the house I have another cupboard where I keep finished items that are ready for sale.
I am going to be running a regular feature showcasing much more gorgeous, organised and adorable creative studios. Have you got a great creative space you would to share?
