Sewing Room Organization--Finally!

I finally got into my sewing room to re-organize my mess!!  I spent the whole day Saturday putting together a new bookcase from IKEA (love that place!) and organizing/folding/purging my fabric collection.  I didn't realize how out of control that room had become in the 2 months since I've been able to work in there.  No wonder I haven't been able to get any sewing done!  Your room has to be accessible, not to mention your basic cutting area and machines!


My biggest problem when it came to organizing was just how I was going to divide everything.  Now that I have 2 bookcases, I am using one of them to keep all of my collections of fabrics together.  The second bookcase is divided by color and made up of fabric that doesn't fit into a collection.


I got rid of about 6 bags of fabric, and that giant container on the floor are most of my scraps that I just can't bear to throw away...I swear, I have issues!

Now that I have room to work again, I am getting started on my New Wave quilt, my niece's Single Girl quilt, WIPs, and so many other sewing projects!  I am really excited about it!!


  1. Great work on that fabric organization... I do that once a month... I just started a new blog dedicated to sewing spaces... Would you like to be featured in it? Please email me if you're interested and we can decide on a date..

  2. use the scraps to make fabric bows! they are addicting! :)
