Working on a Sewing Area via Pinterest

My house is small. Not like 900 square feet small but like 1400 square feet, one car garage, six people living in it - small.  And since my kids like to sleep in bedrooms I can't take their rooms and make it into my craft room so I have to figure out something.  Right now I have everything in my sewing closet but it is not super convenient, this is where Pinterest comes in.

Want to see my ideas?  I have this small space on the other side of our corner computer armoire.  I want to do something like this with the shelves up high and maybe buy this small desk from Target.

And right above the desk I want to hang this - painted black.

I'm hoping to get this done soon so I can get back to some sewing.  We will see.  If I get it done I will post pics. 

How do you deal with a small area to do crafts?  Any ideas for me?

Oh and if you want, you can follow me on Pinterest



  1. I love it. Can't wait to see what you do!

  2. I knit, so that can be done almost anywhere. However, the yarn storage presents a problem, not to mention the other stuff that is used semi-reguarly.

    I have been thinking about this for a while, and maybe I can be creative enough to make some sort of system work...

    Right now my best option is to take over some our closet!

  3. I hope you can do this for yourself. These are great ideas! You would love it.

  4. Can't wait to see what you do! I currently sit on the bed with my sewing machine on an ironing board. Crazy! Unfortunately, most of my projects are "surprises" for the kids and I can't work on the kitchen table! I'm trying to figure out a way to make more space in our kitchen for school supplies and childcare supplies. They are taking over!

    It is tough to decide what to do especially with a small house.


I love comments!
