If you have a small sewing area, don’t waste valuable floor space with storage. Instead, install open shelving units on the walls to free up your work space and give your sewing room a clean look. Or you can make some cheap over-the-door craft organizers to hold various sewing tools and keep them out of the way when you’re working. You can also hang bolts of fabric on the wall when you’re not using them.
2. Get in shape
Make your sewing space work for you by creating different places to do specific things. An L-shaped desk works great for this, as it can help set apart your sewing area from your set-up area (the place where you create and cut your patterns).
3. Make it pretty
Once you have your desk situated, sew some DIY organizers using scrap fabric or denim to keep on the sides of your work area. This way, you can separate your tools while making the area look beautiful. Use fabrics that match the rest of the room to tie everything together and give it a cohesive look.
Create a sewing station to mount on your wall to keep your work space clear while storing your sewing essentials in one tidy place. Pins, thread, bobbins, scissors, and more can easily be organized this way.
5. Put it on display
Make the entire room work for you by turning your walls into a gallery. Install padded pin boards on the walls so that you can tack up your sewing creations for your guests to see. Cover them with fabric to make your space look like a professional sewing studio.
