Though my day was rather annoying in bits, I am planning a new project ๐Ÿ™‚ which always makes me feel better ๐Ÿ™‚ I want to create a proper crafting-mostly sewing space in my bedroom so that I can sew in peace and still have a presentable room instead of it being a mountain of fabric as it is currently.

Some facts about my room:

  • It has 3 doors and two windows overlooking a balcony
  • It was my mother’s room and my brother’s room when they were children
  • It has lovely green, white and black mosaic flooring(I love my house for this reason- it’s old fashioned and roomy)
  • My windows have a lovely stylized grill design created by my own grandfather (it’s a version of his initials!)
  • My room has pale green walls and I never will change the color cos I love it this way…It’s my refuge and den ๐Ÿ™‚ and I love it being green

I want my room to be:

  • Still my bedroom but with crafty space for all my midnight crafting sprees
  • Tech Savvy-My computer table is also in my room and I need place for DVDs and my many gadgets-I’ve covered the table with a cute vinyl shower curtain with tiny yellow and white checks!So easy to clean and maintain
  • Inspiring- I want to have signboards and inspiring pictures to help me create-perhaps even an inspiration board kind of thing.
  • Feminine- I have gone from having all colors in my room to having monochromatic schemes now, I’m drawn to a pale green, pink and butter yellow or aqua scheme.
  • Organized-I am SO tired of having to cut fabric on the floor cos my table is cluttered and having to step over/roll over fabric, needles and scissors at every step I take in my room.I gotta figure out how to organize my stash- and it ain’t that big if I may say so myself!
  • Sewing area for 2 sewing machines- I am planning to buy an automatic sewing machine-most probably an USHA Janome- oh why don’t we have Bernina’s in Chennai ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am going to keep my current treadle poweredย  Singer Fashion Maker for sentimental and practical reasons
  • Paper Craft area- I love to make origami boxes, the occasional card and fancy rubber stamped paper. While I may want to focus on sewing, I know that I can get bitten by the paper craft bee at any time-hence I want a little table space free for my paper stash-I am planning to use my dressing table for that ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, you’ve read about my plans- now it’s time for you to post some pictures of your craft/sewing spaces. You can link up to your photos too. I need some inspiration people!!
