I really am learning to love sewing and wanted to have a space designated for it. I figured if I had a space, I would do it more. I did need the space to be practical and multifunctional. This is my new, organized space.
I repurposed my old school table to hold my sewing machine and still have room at the other end to cut material. I would love to get a nice cutting mat to go at that end of the table too. My table is being used for storage as well.
I can hide up to 8 storage boxes under, with the table sitting on top of them.
I made this table skirt using the cheapest material I could find…muslin. I inserted pleats every six inches…pinned and then sewed them along the top.
And then sewed the bristle-like side of the velcro to my material…every couple pleats.
The table works well like this as long as everything is level. I had to move the boxes around a bit to get them level but now it works very nicely.
Under the table I have my little chest of drawers that holds my sewing supplies.

I know, it’s not anything special but it is my new and organized sewing space. I’m looking forward to getting busy and starting a project soon!
