Here you can see some of the playroom on the right. It is actually great now that Henry will play happily next to me while I sew. I love sewing while still feeling included in the family stuff going on. Especially when my husband is home playing with the kids, I can sew and not feel guilty about shut off in another room. Don’t mind the BYU flag on the window; it’s college football season. And notice the two rolls of trims on the window shelf. I might use the windowsill for my sewing stuff.
Not pictured are two small built in closets behind me that hold the rest of my fabric, my craft supplies, my patterns, and kid’s craft supplies.
Above my sewing machine I have all my thread, sharp tools, and pictures that make me happy. The fitting room board at the top used to be lots of pastel colors, but I spray painted it white for a simpler look. Eventually I’ll paint the letters, but it can wait until later. Above my serger I have a bulletin board that I spray painted white and added washi tape to the border. Then I have a thread spool wreath above that.
Two of my paintings are from my friend Sunnie. She does amazing watercolors with a folk-tale fantasy vibe. She has these and other prints that you can purchase in her shop. I have The Wolf and the Hare and The White Elk prints. I framed them in white to make them stand out. (I really wish my walls were white or some other color though.) She did not pay me to say this; my opinions are my own.
Above my thread I hung the GRUNDTAL magnetic knife, and I store all my sharp tools out of the reach of small hands. I also hang my safety pins and large pins on the top of my thread rack. Besides hanging all my upcoming projects on the ALGOT stand, I have two crocheted bins that I store other tools out of the kid’s way. Down under the serger are two open shelves. For now I’m storing my sewing box, buttons, some snaps, and a bin of elastic. The bottom shelf has to stay somewhat open because Henry uses it as his garage.
