A Bit of the New House - Sewing Room

Well I've been giving you all some sneak peaks of the house since we've been here and been working on it, but I've finally got some spaces well enough together to share them. And I know that you all are most interested in the bathrooms...right?


what? no?


oh...you want to see the SEWING room....


ahhh....well I guess I can do that. ;)



Sewing Room - Machine and Decor




There it is...that pretty new machine sitting on the desk that I had my husband paint to match my new shelves. Some minis strung up above (I think I stole that idea from over at Clover And Violet lol). There are scrap bins to the right and fun organization things on the shelf above.


My thread is back in place above the machine loosely organized by color with bobbins throughout.


Sewing Room - Thread





But then there is the fabric...


Sewing Room




I'm sooo happy I went with the blue for the cabinetry. That color never fails to lift my spirits! My husband calls this room "my happy place" and trust me that color has a ton to do with it!


Sewing Room - Fabric Shelves




There is some color organization going on but given that I didn't put it in rainbow order, I see it as "loose". Type A rearing it's ugly head again! I'm working mainly at incorporating my Fat Quarters into my stash organization.


Sewing Room - Fabric




Precuts are neatly stored on a shelf way up high and give the room some eye candy. Delicious!


Sewing Room - Precuts





A slew of neutrals takes up part of one side, together with my copy of "Nancy Drew's guide to Life" which every savvy girl must own. Oh and I finally framed my thank you print from Heather Ross...I have print #1 which is pretty fabulous.


Sewing Room - Neutrals




And behind the closed doors at the base are shelves filled with more! The top shelves have containers with a different project stored away...which helps me keep things tidy...well...tidier. And the bottom shelf holds things like large yardage and home dec fabrics.


Sewing Room - Lower Cabinets




We don't have the design wall in place yet. There are no window treatments in this room yet. I have a second machine set up on another wall and the closet is organized but FULL of supplies. The books are on a bookcase but I need to organize them. But I'm happy. Understatement.


This is a place where I can create. I know I can. I will. And it will be wonderful.

  2. Angela, I'll take your sewing room anytime. I mean ANYTIME! It looks gorgeous! I love the blue cabinetry with the matching sewing desk. The red Horizon looks really pretty against it :) Congratulations and enjoy your new inspiring place!

  7. OMG I'm jealous again, haha!! You must surely be in heaven. on the shelf above the thread, I recognize the awesome mermaid and boat pincushion from the SLICED competition, but what are the 2 patchy things? they look cute, I just don't know what they are.I love how you put the mermaid in a chair!

  10. Love the new studio! My walls are a similar color and I agree it is a happy place, I have to laugh at the DS Quilts fabric and the rest of your stash-looks alot like whats on my shelves.

  11. This looks like a fantastic place to sew with all of the little details and organization that you've added to it! The precuts and the top shelf and just too irresistible. :) I would have a hard time cutting up those gorgeous kona bundles! lol

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow, talk about gorgeous!!! And I absolutely love that cabinetry color. I saw a kitchen done in it once and LOOVED it. Though I don't know what that would do for resale, since not everyone would like it!

  13. Wonderful sewing room! I probably have as much fabric as you do, but yours is organized! If you are ever in southern Arizona, you simply must stop by and organize my sewing room!!

  14. Your room looks lovely! I like how you have your FQs nestled in with the fabric. That's a better solution than my current one. They're in a separate bin because they don't "look nice" on my comic book "mini bolts". But I'm always forgetting about them because they're not in plain view (hmm, maybe that makes me lazy...). But I can see now how they can actually look nice if I do it right. Thanks for the inspiration!

  15. Love your blue shelves and loved seeing your sewing space. All that fabric is fabulous! I am sure you will be super creative and happy in that room. :)

  16. Great fabric organization! Did you use comic book boards for your fabric? I'm thinking of switching to this but DREADING actually implementing it. I'm a bins gal right now but I can't see it all as nicely as you can. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Just PERFECT, in every way :) I can see why you smile when you walk in your happy space :)!! Enjoy it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow - how fun it must be looking at the display of fabric everyday! Lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Great room! It says: 'Create, Sew'. I just showed my husband your cabinetry of fabric to show him I don't have too much fabric. Lol!! Enjoy your space.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh Angela, it's gorgeous! Who cares what the rest of the house looks like! This is such a happy place to create:)

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's a lovely space. I am slightly (only slightly now) envious. Someday...

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's all so fantastic, but my very favorite thing in that room is the little sailboat pincushion!

    ReplyDelete
  23. WOW! I love your place! I call it Quilter's paradise! I would also love to play with your gorgeous fabric! Enjoy your happy place!

  25. Angela - i'm offering some unsolicited advice about your knee lever. I have one too, and someone suggested I learn to use my left foot on the foot pedal so that I don't have to worry about accidentally pressing down on it as I use the knee lever (or shifting it off beforehand). It felt weird at first but honestly it only took one sewing session before I got used to it.

  26. so envious of your wall unit and it's organization. I have the space but have not organized it yet. I am looking for the perfect fabric storage piece of furniture

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a lovely room. I think it would nake anyone happy. I kept eyeing up your rainbow of kona solid bundles - wanted to reach through the computer and pinch them :)

    ReplyDelete

  29. Your room is exquisite! I love the clothesline and the thread rack. Your fabrics are beautiful and so neat, very impressive! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ah, I can just picture you as you unpacked all those color-coded boxes and placed everything in your new sewing room! Your Nancy Drew book is definitely worth the space! Isn't it wonderful to have a place of your own?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. I want to live in your sewing room! It's so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh my goodness! I so want to be you right now! I know it's wrong to covet but man oh man. That fabric stash is just dreamy. I've been quilting for 15 years now but I just started my stash in January. Before I just bought exactly what I needed for the quilt I was working on. This way is so much more fun!

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's lovely! I agree; having bright colors in the room really soothes and inspires! I know this will be a fun place for you to create for many years. Enjoy it, Ang!

  37. Thanks for letting me share your hexie pillow on The Hexie Blog! Check out my other blog, too (greenquilts.blogspot.com). We are moving our of our home of 20 years next week to a new home in a different city. I love your new sewing room! I'm getting lots of ideas for my new studio!

  38. BEAUTIFUL space! What color is that blue paint? Who makes it? I love it! I think it would be a great complement to my yellow room.

    Your fabric looks beautiful on the shelves! But, do you worry about it fading-being out in the open?

    1. I know... I want to know what blue that is too... it'll be perfect in my new craft room.

  40. Thanks for the tour, Angela! I see. pretty. fabric.

  41. Beautiful! I just packed up my sewing room recently and just today packed up my dining room table, which was housing my current projects. I still have a couple of things out, but I can't wait to unpack and decorate a new space!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm not sure how to explain to my husband that the keyboard no longer works because I was drooling on it while checking out your gorgeous studio! I am in love with your workspace!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have been trying to figure out what color my "sewing wardrobe, dresser and desk
    need to be. Thank so much for helping me choose. Love the blue you chose. Can
    you give me an idea of what the paint color was used?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love it.. Envy of your neat stash! Keep inspiring!
