Aaaaahhhhhhhh I have a sewing room in our new apartment!!!! **waves hands around like Kermit**
I’m just a little bit excited….until now I’ve been set up in a corner of our dining room. (You can see that space here.) There was plenty of room and I was very happy there, but it will be nice to have a little space all of my own.
We moved to our permanent apartment two weeks ago and it has a study which I will set up once all my gear arrives. I also have a starting putting together a wish list of things I want to set up the space just as I’d like.
Here are five things I’m hoping to have as part of my new set up!
Lots of you will be familiar with this one – it’s been a popular addition to craft rooms for a while now! Buying this will also be easy for me – that’s one of the problems with moving to a new country – sometimes I’m not sure where to go to buy simple things. Ikea is familiar and the same everywhere in the world!
These are great for scraps and ribbons and a pretty way to display items but keep them handy and within reach. I think I’ll need 3-5 of these.
I have lusted after a design wall for a long time but putting it up on the wall in a common area is not ideal. Now that I have an actual room with several blank walls I could even have two! I was entertaining the idea of making my own, but perhaps buying this one would save me a ton of time and it’s collapsible and can be easily packed away. Hmmm decisions….
One thing I wasn’t able to have shipped to China was my wonderful peg board. *sobs* I’ll need an alternative for thread storage but I won’t need much. I Marie Kondo‘ed the crap out of my thread stash before I packed it up and my New Year’s Resolution is ONLY BUY GOOD THREAD. Thank goodness my friend Melissa runs a brilliant Aurifil Club. This little thread holder will be a lovely way to display my spools and keep them handy.
Practical storage solutions are one thing…but it will be nice to decorate the room too. How fabulous is this vintage style Singer Sewing Machine poster? At US$8.95 it’s a steal and the perfect way to pretty up my new room!
Once everything arrives and I get all set up, I’ll share some pictures.
Do you have any storage or organisation tools in your sewing space that you’d recommend?
