Here it is!!! Finally!! The big reveal!! I realize this is not exactly a magazine-style looking sewing room, however, the total cost was something like $30. So with that in mind, it's not bad at all!
Here's some very sorry-looking pictures of
Everything was very cramped, the big table was in a different room, and it was just very blah. Not conducive to working at all. Now we have the knitting machines moved into another room (which we're also re-doing, so those pictures will be up in a little while also), and made this just our sewing area.
Here's the after:
I re-did the bulletin board that you saw in the before picture and made it into a cute ribbon board! (Tutorial coming very soon)
The jars of scraps and buttons are useful, while also giving you a little bit of decor.
Fabric stash! Can't wait to make stuff!
I originally wanted to buy wooden letters and paint them in a chevron pattern, but absolutely no one had the right kind of letters, so I settled for scrapbook paper. Freehand cutting, as you can most likely tell. ;)
Embroidery hoop art. Very simple to do, and it looks pretty cute. These things are so awesome - you can take the tiniest scraps and make them into this. The two small hoops are fabric samples from a curtain company. The others are from JoAnn. It ends up being a really cheap way to decorate, because even if you have to buy fabric, you only need 1/4 of a yard or so. The hoops run about $1.50.
Couldn't help myself. Who doesn't want to see pink highlighted fabric?!! Courtesy of my lovely Nikon Coolpix.
So what do you think? It's very simple, and not necessarily Pinterest-worthy, but it's a nice, decent space to create in, and very budget-friendly.
I'll be posting the tutorial for the ribbon board in a little while.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'd love to have you follow my blog, and leave me a comment about what you think of the new sewing room!
