We bought our house last summer and until we need the spare bedroom for any future additions (Mally is not convinced a brother or sister is that necessary!!), I was determined to have a space to myself that I could call a craft room. It is the smallest room ever (approx 2m X 2.5m) butI have managed to ram all of my craft
So as others have done so before me (and oh so much better!) here are a few pictures showcasing what I have done so far...(because we are never really finished are we?!):
My sewing machine cover is based on a design from Amanda Carestio's Stash Happy Felt
Weaving Stick Dollie is there because I really, really love her! And of course Pretty Pins to use on the boards!
Paint Swatch Coasters + Felt Sewing Kit + brand new brushes that I blatantly bought for their colour!!!!
The hanging buckets are from IKEA. They need to be covered and/or painted as it wont do that they are red!
The suitcase was £2 from a charity shop. It has all the big bits of fabric, and also a bag inside for all of the smaller scraps. The bin is a bin (funny enough!) that has old T-shirts, tea towels, and any other clothing items that may have up-cycling potential. I would love to be able to organise and display the fabrics so I can find what I need more easily but a) I am too scared that they would get sun bleached or paint splattered and b) I'm terribly messy...!
This is my bin of "acquired" wallpaper samples. Dunc is brilliant at getting these for me! Because you never know when you will need them. Like when making Handmade Books!Organising your Paper Stash
I just wanted to end with a link to my most favourite room of all time. Karen from Sew Many Ways has done the most detailed post. She is brilliant at organising, making things, up-cycling and coordinating everything in. You really, really, really, have to see this... And if any of you have done your rooms up, please send me links or photos - I am totally obsessed!
