My Sewing Room

I got into a cleaning mood….. and decided that since I could barely get into my sewing room to actually sew… it was time for a bit of a cleanup.


my problem (apart from being a slob), is I have FAR too much fabric.  Now… I didn’t believe that was possible, and I guess I should say I have “far too much fabric, for the space it needs to fit into”.  When you have to squeeze your fabric in by putting it in ziplock bags and sucking the air out (spacebag style), and have over hundreds of metres of it…. it’s probably too much for a small room!

Here are the befores…

The after shots…

which probably still look messy, but hey, it’s an improvement.

obsisewingroomafterstockThis is how I keep my stock.  The pink boxes are lids from boxes of paper, that hubby collected from his work for me.  I have them stacked in document trays, to make a drawers effect 🙂
