In all the years I've been crafting, I've never had my own crafting space. I stuffed yarn in random closets, drawers, bags, and plastic totes. In the last year, add fabric and sewing notions to that and its been a hell of a mess.
In order to use my sewing machine, I had to pull it out of a closet and set it up on the dining room table. It was a pain in the ass and I didn't sew unless I knew I could keep the machine out for awhile.
But now, I have my very own space! I'd tell you to pinch me, but I've already done that to myself a bunch of times, haha. Its not quite a room, but its close enough!
Our new place has very little closet space, which made for a lot of craft boxes and bags left in the corner unpacked. What our bedroom lacked in closet space is made up with a little alcove in the corner of the room. We weren't quite sure what to do with it, then hubby had the bright idea to get me a portable table for my crafting supplies and sewing machine.
That wicker chest on the right and the dollar store bag on the left holds yarn. The drawers are actually deep enough to keep all of my sewing supplies, knitting needles, crochet hooks, and ribbon. I still have my fabric folded in the closet, but that's easy to pull out.
I'm beyond stupid excited to have my own little space dedicated to the hobbies I love.
Now, I need to get curtains, make a sewing machine cover and decorate a little. Its bland for sure and needs sprucing up. Maybe a cork board for the wall for ideas and current patterns I'm working on. Any ideas to make the space a little warmer?
I can't wait until I've got an evening with some free time to use my new space!
