Craft Room Envy!

By Christa Terry

Long story short, I’m sewing a new deeper diaper bag for myself. The old one is awesome, but much more suited to the needs of a newborn than a little chick who’s less than a week away from being a year old! I’m avoiding thinking about where the time goes by contemplating the task of digging out my craft room, which was once my home office. I moved my laptop into the living room so as better to watch the baby, leaving what ought to have been space to sew but became a temporary storage room straight out of that show about hoarders. Not cool, not cool.

Today’s post is meant to inspire me to make my now craft room a little bit more suited to its purpose, but perhaps it will also inspire some of my dear readers, who I know for a fact can get pretty craft when they want to! Here are five cool craft rooms in which there’s a place for everything, and everything appears to be in its place.

    A craft room? Heck, I’d be happy with anything but what I’ve got now. Right now, I’ve got my sewing stuff jammed into a tiny, dark, dusty corner in my laundry room in the basement. If I have any large sewing projects, I have to haul my 1963 Singer (and that bugger is HEAVY) up the stairs and onto the dining room table. Someday, when we finish the basement and make a rec room, I’d love to have one end of it be just for my sewing, with a nice long table, shelves for my supplies, racks for various works-in-progress, etc. That second photo with the lovely little aqua craft corner looks just lovely to me.

    Ooh, that I couldn’t handle, if only because my laundry area is in the unfinished bit of the basement by the furnace and the catboxes. But I, too, have a rather old sewing machine that weighs quite a bit. I used to lug it to the sewing center, where all the other ladies had these streamlined machines with handles built right in.

    (Wrt to that photo you liked, how about that glitter phone?!)

  3. La Petite Acadienne Says:

    I love that glitter phone. It is just too much fun!!!

    And yeah, my laundry room is just a stone’s throw from our wood furnace, and the walls aren’t finished, so it’s a pretty dusty spot.

    I’d love to get a lighter, better sewing machine someday, but that old Singer is built like a tank, and it still works perfectly. And my frugal self can’t justify spending money on a new sewing machine when the one I have works perfectly well (even if it weighs as much as your average 10-year old child.)

  4. Never teh Bride Says:

    That’s pretty much how I feel about it… and judging by how old my machine is, I kind of want it to keep on keeping on just so it outlives all the flashier and younger models.

    Love the craft room ideas! Mine functions as office, craft room, and general administrative area. Would love to have a completely separate space for crafts.

    Okay I really gotta clean out my sewing room now.
