Welcome to Heathers Sewing Room and the 7th Annual Where Bloggers Create Festival, hosted by My Desert Cottage. Come on in to my creative space. This is where I mostly make quilts, design and sew clothes, create boxes of all shapes and sizes, and design and make bags. Living as an expat means, I feel that nothing is permanent, so I work with the space that I have knowing it all needs to move when the time arises.
With children no longer living at home it enables me to have a whole room to create in :) This is the room as I enter through the door.
A trip to the Ikea store allowed me to purchase a good selection of tables to work on. With adjustable legs on the tables I was able to set the table height that worked for the situation.
Putting the tables at arms length always means I have places to put items as I work.
Being under a window with my standing table means I get good daylight.
I like all my tools out on my table so I gathered containers and covered them to suit my needs.
The chest of drawers is for fat quarter fabric storage
A place for displaying handmade items and inspirational hangings
I have always liked this saying and I managed to find a plaque at a market in London.
I thought this was a great piece of inspiration so I printed it out, pasted it to card stock and framed it with papers from my stash
The room has a double wardrobe that I use for storage
I removed the hanger rail and put in an extra shelf.
On one wall I made a design area. Clicking here will take you to the tutorial of how I made the design wall.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy visiting the 7th Annual Where Bloggers Create.
