Whether you have a tiny New York apartment, or a sprawling suburban ranch house, this week's Maker, Heather Ross, will inspire you to create a sewing workspace you'll love to sit down to.
We obviously love this computer table and ottoman set, which perfectly suits the low-budget, small-space sewing enthusiast (ahem, I'm looking at me)! Of course, this is the perfect space-saver setup for any type of crafter! The expandable desk with the roll-out front offers more work surface, and its small drawer is perfect for easy-to-access tools.
A comfy, padded ottoman offers double the function--triple if you count using it as emergency visitor seating! Who doesn't love secret places to squirrel away your craft supplies? This is the perfect place to keep your sewing machine, patterns and fabric, skooched descreetly under the desk
Other space savers:
*A hanging ironing board keeps you from getting "pressed" for space and time!
*A wall-mounted, fabric covered inspiration board is a crafty way to keep fabric samples, magazine cuttouts, and more tools handy.
*Mason jars contain your notions, and you can update them with a new Pinterest mason jar makeover whenever they bore you!
Talk about squirreling! For those of you with a little more real estate, we dream about this office armoire! They do actually make "sewing armoires," which have a pull out table with leaf extentions, so Google or Bing or walk around estate sales to find what's right for you.
Space saving additions:
* Hang an ironing board over a door for smooth operating and steamy goodtimes!
* Line the other door with thick cork board for real life pinning!
* Stack fabric, patterns, projects and more tools high and low!
Ponder the possibilities to create! A beautiful workspace may help you make a beautiful entry into the Kollabora Alt Summit Challenge! Check out all the details about this exciting competition here!
