I have a little desk in the corner of our living room where I sew. I find it helps so much to have my machine out all the time, it means any time I have a spare 5minutes I am ready to sew. My family are very tollerant to allow me such a luxury in what is quite a small house. I like my space to be tidy and well organised but pretty too with all I need at hand.
I keep my spools of thread on my desk in a beautiful glass jar that I bought in Dunelm’s bathroom department, it wasn’t expensive but I think it looks a million dollars.
Because I sew in our living room I need to be very tidy I keep a vintage tea cup cup on my desk for all the threads I’ve clipped. I love old crockery and it’s lovely to find a way I can use this cup and have it out on display. My thread snips rest perfectly on the saucer and are always to hand.
I’d love to hear where you find space to sew and what little finishing touches make your sewing space special?
