My sewing room has been needing more storage. badly. Things were leaking onto the floors and I kept tripping over piles of fabric….which isn’t always a bad thing, but in this case it was. So I grabbed my bestie and her kiddo and we headed up to Ikea. (which is a whole different meltdown story, but I’ll spare you)
I bought two cheapo Kilby bookcases ($25 each) and Rory and I put them together that night. I left the backs off so that I could still use the plug, and I was lazy, and I like seeing the wall color. Although that means I now need to patch some holes where my previous shelves were. (Will I ever do it? bwahaha. )
You can see my previous post about the sewing room here…looks like I need to do an update sometime!
I ordered more of those comic book boards for the rest of my fabric. (I only had enough for about half) Are you nosy? I am. (at least about craft rooms)
Here’s what’s on each shelf for you gotta-know-it folks!
top 3 shelves: fabric…all my 1 and 1.5 yard cuts. (plus a small stack of half yard cuts)
Bottom two shelves: larger cuts of fabric and on the bottom all my Go Baby dies and some patterns.
On the right bookshelf we have: (top to bottom)
More patterns, embroidery supplies, and some sewing books. (Just got this one! It looks good.
1/2 yard cuts and solids.
apparel fabrics and knits
sheets crammed in (should find another method…this one’s not so pretty looking)
Oh, and ignore my fallen-over pink J…I haven’t quite decorated the top yet, and this was my attempt…which obviously failed. ;} That cool sewing machine sign thingy bob was made by my brother for me (Christmas gift), and on the top, cut out (with a laser cutter machine), is the name of my blog. Cool, huh?
So yep. This is what it looks like most days, it’s actually pretty cleaned up!
I love seeing all my fabrics lined up so pretty. Welcome to my fabric shop! just kidding…you can’t have any. (actually, you can…I’m destashing some yardage and scraps in the shop! Yardage coming soon)
