Starting to bring order to chaos

Right ok, having realised my sewing productivity is pretty poor, I have decided to organise myself a bit by sorting out my sewing space.  As mentioned in a previous post, I have half a small room to use, but I have not yet done anything with it, because frankly I didn't know where to start.
What I need to do is:
  • Clear up, tidy and clean my part of the room
  • Create a partition of some kind
  • Make decorative bunting and hang and a cork board to pin inspirational bits and bobs
  • Get our big bookcase sorted [not in pic].  Empty the two drawers of my man's man-things (wires, cables, screws, hammers you know the kind of thing) into plastic boxes and move to his side, and instead fill the bookcase with my sewing books, my fabric stash and my patterns!
  • Move in my sewing machine and my storage drawers, then the space is complete
I already got some storage drawers (from Ikea, inspired by Karen's) for all my sewing sundries:

And I've shamelessly copied Ashley and bought myself some plastic drawers to store my mid-progress projects:

I'm on my way!


  1. Ooh, how exciting!! I love my drawers so much, I'm so glad you got some too :) I've found it easier to grab half an hour of sewing here and there because I know where everything is and don't have to go searching for it!
    I can't wait for some 'after' pics :)

  2. You're off to a great start, looking forward to seeing the finished room!


Please comment, I'd love to hear from you
