I sew in the living room, at our dining table. (I call it that, but we rarely dine there.) Most of the time, I’m happy with this arrangement. It means I get to watch TV at the same time as make things and be with Mr V even if we’re doing our own things. I’m thankful that Mr V is wonderful about letting me leave my stuff out on the table until my project is finished, and he pretends not to mind how noisy my clunky old sewing machine is.
But, there’s a huge part of my heart that yearns for that room of my own (although of course, Ms Woolf would rather I used it to write than sew!). From that part of my heart to yours, here are some of my favourite sewing spaces from the internet.
(You can find more on my “there she sews” pinterest board.)
Love this little nook, especially all those gorgeous scissors on the wall.
Um, sewing shed?! Yes please! (as long as it comes with a heater and I can insulate it! Brr.)
Ikea plus Orla Keily plus a trio of little red suitcases? Yes yes yes.
Ah, cool blues and peaceful whites, I love you.
I do wonder if I’d craft more or less if I had my own room to do it in. At least with sitting room sewing I tend not to leave projects unfinished for tooo long, because they’re right there in the main room of our flat. (I try not to pack away unfinished objects as it’s the kiss of death for them – I did that with my Cambie Dress and as I have mentioned many times, I’ve yet to finish it.)
I find how I feel about sewing in the living room tends to depend on which of these two pictures my sewing space looks like:
(Even though the neat picture is still pretty chaotic as we’d only just moved in!)
Where do you craft? Would you like a room of your own?
Do you have a craft room? Make me jealous with all the details!
PS. This week has turned into an impromptu sewing space week! I’ve got a sponsored post on the subject tomorrow then I’m going to show you where I secretly stash all my sewing tools around the house!
PPS. I know, but thank you for supporting me and my little blog!
