Where do you sew? Do you have a dedicated sewing space? Or do you have to make do with a kitchen table? Or even a coffee table? I have been thinking about my sewing space a lot since hearing about Jane's sewing room and seeing Tilly's new sewing space, and have decided to give it an overhaul.
I have been using a desk in the corner of our bedroom for my sewing, but I really hate it. It's too big for our tiny flat, and it's just plain ugly. Look:
However! Today I sold this ugly piece of furniture, and I am now deskless. So now I get to choose myself something much more suitable. We are limited on space so I want something small. I'm currently dithering between these two Ikea numbers:
The one on the left is cheap and small, but it's also pretty ugly. The one below is bigger and a lot more expensive but it's so much prettier and I can just close up the lid and hide all my mess when I'm done sewing. But I'm a bit worried the worktop might be a little restrictive because of the raised sides. I just can't decide which one will work best in my little space.
Hmm I'm going to have to have a think about it. The most important thing is a good surface to work on, right? And space for bits and bobs.
I'll be back to update when I've got it done. In the meantime I will mostly be googling sewing spaces for inspiration!
