Sewing Area

Rice bag heating pad. These really work. Add uncooked rice to cute bags or socks & sew closed. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes and place on needed area. Retains heat for a long time! Reusuable! Small ones would be great to slip into coat pockets on a cold day! Great gift idea!

For me, this could be cutting on the left, sewing on the right, and ironing board in the middle. At the source, lots of good instructions for organizing your sewing area.

Inside your easy no-sew teepee @Chrissy Lambrecht - I think you should help me make this for the boys. We can make Joe and Matt do the wood parts :)

GREAT IDEA ... Photos say it all ......Don't throw away your old fall sweaters just yet ! .... click to see larger photo....1. Fill Sleeves with rolled up old sweaters, towels, socks etc 2. Slip Pillow in between front and back of shirt or sweater. 3. Roll and Tuck sleeves around pillow area 4. Tape or Sew cuffs of sleeves together to complete.

"Where I Sew" month of blog posts at Pink Chalk Studio with tons of pictures and ideas for organizing a sewing area.

Lace shirt by deirdre || Sewing idea: Turn tshirt backwards (maybe not necessary), create lace insert where new chest area will be, cut deep back.

Knife rack from Ikea. This is a perfect solutin for my sewing area. I have a pile and always takes time finding the one i want!


Great ideas to use curtain rods and hanging baskets for sewing room storage and a rod for paper for pattern making! LOVE!!!

DIY area rug by sewing together table runners. Much cheaper than buying an area rug. I wonder if I can learn to sew, or just bribe my sis to help. Lol

No Sew Curtains... love this idea. I think I'm going to use this idea to replace all of my curtains in my living area :)

In fabric designer Anna Maria Horner's crafts room, multiple tables line the perimeter for lots of extra work space. One table gets skirted to hide more supply storage. Corkboard hangs on the wall above the work area for a place to tack magazine clippings, fabrics, and sketches. A cubby unit placed on a table gets fabric storage up to eye level. Plenty of task lighting hangs above all work areas.

thread bouquet - love this idea to brighten up the sewing area!

Love this setup for a sewing area - need the board for storage (even though I don't have that much stuff)!

Great pattern and photos. Super easy. Just double crochet six horizontal rows the length of the circumference of your head, sew together, sew together the knotted area then crochet a little thing for the bow and sew that together. Bam. And it uses so little yarn, great scrap project.

Craft and sewing room: like the uplit shelf around the top of the walls and the chandelier.

Add to your hip area 2" or less, (I added 1.5") without changing your waist measurement. Hip area = hip line, directly above & below it

Wow love this pink - but look how neat her fabric is! I can only dream of being that neat with my fabric...

(::) Oh My! Button Shop door pulls... Could use this idea for dresser drawers in the craft/sewing area!

Folding Workbench - Yes - this project would also work great for a cutting table in a small sewing room, small office, or craft area...

Helping Little Hands: Single Layer No-Sew "Braided" Fleece Blankets Tutorial... no knots & less blanket area used up as fringe. I like the look better, too.
