Sewing Room Inspiration and Ideas
The Fine Print
Colourful prints can instantly brighten up your sewing space and we love this post by @paigejoanna. Love embroidery? Why not make a gallery of your hoop designs or you could even frame your favourite fabric print?
What’s in store?
Whether you’re lucky enough to have a whole room to dedicate to sewing or occupy a small space in your home, organisation is key. Small storage boxes and shelving are great for categorising your sewing items like threads and patterns. Keep all those essential pieces of haberdashery stored nearby so they’re at arms length during your sewing sessions. We love the smart, storage solutions shown above by @sew_everyday and @thebrightblooms.
Take a Stand
Thread stands are ideal for keeping your threads stored safely and help you see at a glance if you need to top up any particular shades. Extra points if you colour coordinate your stash like @mollyandmama above.
Paper patterns can often triple in size when taken out of their envelopes but these clever pattern organisers from Pattern Trace UK makes storing them away so much easier. Plus there’s a space for you to note the pattern’s name and jot down thoughts about the construction process on the front.
Room with a view
Sewing during the winter months can be tricky, especially if there is minimal natural light. If possible, try and position your machine near a large window. Your eyes will thank you for it.
