sewing room re-shuffle

My sewing room has been a sort of disaster zone for a few weeks now. There were piles of fabric, paperwork, tons of wips, toys (cats' as well as children's), plus tons of other miscellaneous items all "on display" everywhere. Madness, I'm telling you. Especially since my brain totally shuts down when it's surrounded with clutter. No wonder I had such a hard time getting any work done.
 
So, on Friday night I decided it was finally time to do some major clean up. And then I decided the whole room needed a complete redo. Please tell me I'm not the only one who starts by folding fabrics and ends up moving furniture around :).


I would lie if I didn't tell you I'm absolutely in love with the way it all turned out though. Yay, don't you just love it when your crazy spontaneous ideas really work?


This is what my room looked like last year. Quite a change, isn't it? I've since painted the walls, added more furniture, and toned down all the patchwork-y craziness, but until this weekend I pretty much kept the same layout of the room.


My cutting table now lives by the window and I added a new cabinet in its original place. The new cabinet is full of my screen printing supplies and was a much needed addition to my happy place :). I've also changed the orientation of my table - I think this one change itself made the biggest impact to the whole room.


My fabric cabinets stayed in their original spot (across from all the windows) as they are a perfect fit for the largest wall in the room. 


The room would not be complete without at least one of my furry sidekicks, of course. 
 
I think I'm ready to tackle some serious sewing now. You know where I'll be if you need me :). 

Talk to you soon, friends. Svetlana

  2. Beautiful. But it seems like a big walk between cutting, ironing and sewing. I finally put those stations in more of a u shape with me in the middle and when I turn around from my machine I can Pinder my design wall.

    1. yes, I agree. I think I'll just move my sewing machine to the other side of the table and then everything will be much closer together :)

  9. You are SO lucky to have such a big room to work in. The windows are fabulous. I need to gut my tiny sewing room to make it more workable.

  11. Svetlana, your sewing space is beautiful. Have you turned the window blind into a design wall or maybe you have a piece of board there which can be moved around?

  12. Seriously gorgeous! I am very familiar with the fabric-folding turning into furniture reorganization. Your room is beautiful.

  13. Spectacular! I love the clean look of your new room. I too am tempted to add patchwork-y decor to my sewing room but I am resisting. Completely agree about working in a neat space. I completely shut down if the space is a mess!

  21. Such a large room for sewing and it's beautiful too! I have a little nook off the living room and it seems to be always cluttered. It doesn't bother me much tho, I seem to work just fine in it!
    Sweet sidekick too!

  26. Back again with another comment: I hopped over to Home Depot to look at your cutting table. It is the PERFECT size for my sewing room. I would have to add locking casters to move it around the room but that seems doable. However, the reviews were very mixed about the table, particularly how difficult it was to assemble. Are you pleased with the sturdiness of the table? Does one need to be a carpenter to assemble? Thanks much for your thoughts!

  27. I love all the natural light, it makes the room so bright and clean looking! Do your kids hang out with you while you sew? I ask because of the extra seating. Granted, I have extra seating for my cat in hopes he'll stop laying on my quilts while I'm working on them! LOL
