Come on in and enjoy the little tour. Little because it is a tiny space. But it is filled with treasures.
My mini ironing board which I recovered all by myself! It was a dumpster find!
I am thinking I should keep count on those trash to treasure items!
The little childs iron really works it was my sisters. Don't know how I ended up with it!
He is one of about 200 from my daughters collection. There are a few more we'll see in a minute.
This is the area you see as you open the door and come in. The top shelves more dumpster finds that store my things. When you come in on your right . . .
Don't they look tacky? But they were free. I have no idea why I pulled the drawer out and stuffed stuff in. I need to clean that up! They were dusty and dirty when I found them. Must have been used in a garage. I didn't have anything to remove the tacky sharpie. I have a plan though
These drawers just hold stuff. Tape, glue just stuff I need. Next to this section is. . .
This group of drawers was given to me by another crafter that was downsizing.
Next to it is a black shelf unit that again came from the dumpster actually it never made it in the dumpster. Most of my finds don't. I walk the dog a lot and so I am able to grab things as soon as people put them out.
Next we are moving around to the opposite wall and another drawer unit. . .
My sewing space is always a work in progress.
Next I'll show you the rest of the decorative 'focal point' of the area.
Next to this area is another of my collections . . .
The shelf is open on the back I covered foam core board with the pink fabric.
These are the things I see when I am sewing. Along with the tacky cord hanging from the light My Cowboy hung for me. I really need to at least cover it with muslin. But I am always busy creating
Just above is something I am kind of proud of. Just because I think it is genius!
A few log cabin blocks I've been working on. They are hanging on twine attached to the bottom of the shelf. Sort of like a clothes line.
The last area of the sewing space is an area that holds non sewing things but important non the less...
I admired it sitting on a neighbors patio. One day it was sitting beside the dumpster. It originally had some kind of shalac kind of stuff on it that was yellowed and it was peeling. Cowboy sanded it off for me. It holds my paper perfectly.
And on top . . .
A caddy that I covered with duct tape!
The caddy was a freebie my mother got at her apartment.
She doesn't dumpster dive though it was in the community room 'free' area!
Before we leave a couple more pics...
As you can probably see the area is really narrow. I had originally intended to decorate it in black and white. But decided that would be too dark for this space.
Eventually I'll paint all the wood white. I love white. As I said it is a work in progress. I've begun a little of the changes to white . . .
I have a collection of hat boxes I store fabric stripes and other sewing gadgets and tools. I have been trying to figure out how to cover them. Here's my first attempt . . .
I covered it with white contact paper. Not a perfect job. But at least it's white. I think I am going to try gluing muslin next time.
One more thing I want to show that I think is pretty clever.
Here's the hanging space on the left.
It's really hard to see. These are quilt tops waiting to be quilted. I hung them on the shelves instead of on the regular rod. They are hanging parallel to the wall. I can hang a lot more and they don't stick out into the room giving me more space.
Here's one last shot of my sewing table and my current project.
A bug quilt ready to be quilted. I can't wait to get started!
And before I leave I have to show you what is just outside the door! (I can't believe I forgot this pic. Another bloggers post reminded me!)
My constant companion. She is mad at the moment. I moved her bed while I was taking these pics.
This is front of the door leading from the bedroom to living room. My sewing space is the master closet. Her bed is usually by that door. So she can inch her way into the closet when I am not looking! At least she thinks I'm not looking!
So that is my closet sewing, crafting Creating space!
