Grand’Sev from Au Bonheur des ours organised this summer a little game, asking everyone to share pictures of their workspace. Some time ago I was talking about the reorganisation of my sewing corner, and I’ve been meaning to share pictures ever since, so I decided to join. The deadline was supposed to be yesterday (woops!) but she very kindly extended it for those like me who were late (I’m really sorry! m(_,_)m ). So finally, here are some pics of where I’m spending most of my time.
No, the desk is not always this neat. I just wanted to show it as it is in its best days. ^^ This room is supposed to be a shared working room between my husband and I, so each of us has a desk in it. So this desk that you see is used as a working-on-computer desk, preparing-packages table for work, cutting table and sewing table. But those past weeks my husband kindly let me use his desk for my computer, so I have more space for sewing on my own. I chose it quite big to that it would be easier to cut fabric and sew. I love my desk!
This is my inspiration corner, and also where I keep flyers for sales and events. The cork board is part of the changes I made recently. I can’t put anything on the wall (can’t make holes in it), so I didn’t think I could have an inspiration board. Until I realized I just had to let it on the desk against the wall! It works, and I really like it. It’s much better than the cords (my temporary solution) for inspiration.
And here are my materials! Under the desk: fabrics. The bag stores those that are waiting to be washed. But really I have another pile of fabrics sitting on the kotatsu in the living room, waiting for me to buy another storage box. Near the desk: several things that are too big to go somewhere else (pattern paper, cutting mat, batting…), some patterns and inspiration magazines and my iron. On the shelves: top shelf = sewing notions and some tools; then my gothic lolita magazines, doll magazines and doll pattern books. On the last shelf are my doll clothes, it’s no sewing stuff. I also use a shelf somewhere else to store my human pattern books and other craft related books. You can also see a little piece of the flower dress, which proves that it exists! ^^
