New Sewing Room

Disorganized shelves in my new sewing room!

A tiny and perfect sewing corner

One of the best things about our new apartment, is that a box-shaped corner of our hallway gets to be my new sewing room. It's my first sewing room, hopefully not the last, and it's my pride and joy. I love having a space solely dedicated to sewing. It's just big enough to fit my horribly disorganized sewing bookshelf, my new sewing desk, and my dress form.

My new vintage sewing desk

I got this vintage sewing desk at a flea market in Harpers Ferry, WV. The top folds open and it still has the original sewing machine inside, along with it's original instructions and a vintage buttonhole attachment. Flipping open the top will be so helpful when I am working with large amounts of fabric. I still need to find a small lampshade for the lamp in this photo. I'm hoping for one with some character, any suggestions on where to find one?

Square patchwork pin cushion

The first project I completed in my new sewing room was a purple patchwork pin cushion. I cut out 6 3 1/2" squares and sewed them into a box shape. I didn't have any batting, so I stuffed the pin cushion with small scrapes of cotton muslin. It turned out pretty cute!
