for those of you hopping on my, i'm emily and i'm about to share with you my sewing space! i've joined this blog hop with jen frost and a few others, so be sure to check out there links at the bottom of this post. this is my first blog hop, so i hope you enjoy!
since i'm at home with the parentals still, i share my sewing space with my mom. now now, this is a plus because we have a great sewing table and storage system next to it. i'm going to focus more on where my stuff is currently stored within this system, as well as my own personal fabric storage in my room. a few things you won't see, due to the fact that my hazel hedgehog project has exploded, is the location of our ironing board, as well as the sewing table in it's entirety. we (ahem... my mom) just got this storage shelving, so now that it is all put together and phase one of organized, it's good to have it documented now, should it get changed in the future!
it perfectly fits all 81 of my blocks from the ugly sweater block sew along that i did solely in disney prints. i'm sure they'd fit a bit better without the paper on the backs, so maybe that will be phase 2 towards completing this project. having these boxes has made for a fun way to hide things that would usually just be stacked up all over the place.
we currently keep our cutting boards and rulers behind the shelving unit, which is great for them to be out of the way and not getting stepped all over. additionally, you'll see those metal drink tubs. i use those for storing strips of fabric cut for a certain project. last it was used for the fandom daisy chain, which made it easy for me to reach in through all the different sized strips and see what i wanted without having an entire mess all over the floor,
the drawer on the table gets jammed if you look at it the wrong way, so i've started to keep the things i need most often in an easy reach location. all my threads i keep in this little box, with my own wheel of bobbins around this silly little grumpy cat one of my students gave me. i've been trying to get better at keeping my rotary cutter and scissors in an easy access location, and so far this mug is currently doing the trick. they are right there to grab, and has worked great with my current cutting board set up.
thanks so much for stopping by! i'd love to hear any of your thoughts on storage, as well as if seeing mine helped inspire you in any way. be sure to hop on over and see the rest of those hopping along with me by following the links here:
