I have seen photos of some beautiful, brilliant sewing studios, but such a dedicated space is not in my future: we are a family of 5 in a small downtown house. My "office" is our living room (thanks to two Ikea cabinets with file drawer bottoms) and my "sewing studio" is our dining room -- thanks to the sewing cabinet that my sweet, sweet, problem-solving, ever-handy husband assembled for me!
Words cannot express how much I love my fabric cabinet.
It's just an Ikea cabinet with some Valori Wells/Sole home dec weight fabric in its glass doors...and I lovelovelove it!
My cabinet houses my serger, sewing machine and all my fabric (other than scraps). My fabric will never be perfectly stacked, but my cabinet does have doors! And since I just reorganized, I can actually show you some photos of the interior, without shame.
To the right is garment fabric, flannel, holiday fabric, home dec weight and my serger:
To the right is all my quilting fabric, newly folded, plus a few works in progress and my sewing machine:
Even a little peek inside my cabinet makes me want to sew....But, alas, I have material to prep for my classes tomorrow and papers to grade.
The one thing I really have to tackle is the scrap bag. It's overflowing. But that will have to be a project for another day.
