Craft area

One of the great things about moving to the US has been the amount of space in our new house. I finally had room for a proper crafting area, and promptly did what every other crafter does – hauled off to IKEA and bought some Expedit…

Craft room

The Expedit desk and shelves, a new sewing thread bobbin stand from Michaels and my magnetic whiteboard from the Container Store have really helped with the organisation of all my crafting stuff. Now I actually look forward to sitting down to sew.

All my books and patterns are close by, too.

My spinning wheel has got its own corner where I can keep it if we’re having guests and can’t have it in the living room.

My inaugural sewing project in my new space was a trash bag for the sewing desk. I have seen this ingenious type of bag in my mother-in-law’s sewing room, and I wanted one for myself:
Craft room "trash can"
It sits on the desk, right next to the sewing machine, so I can get rid of small fabric remnants and snipped threads right away, keeping the work area clean.

If you click any of the pictures, you can see notes I added to the pictures in Flickr. But you probably aren’t THAT interested about just what is on my shelves, are you?

    Har ikke vært inne på bloggen din på en stund, men så sykroken din nå og er misunnelig!!! Det er ikke det samme å sitte i en haug med rot på vaskerommet…
