A Sewing Room Makeover!

Hey y’all! Right before Project Sewn began I moved my sewing machine and about half my supplies down stairs into Ellie’s old room. Ellie and Caroline have taken to bunking together in the same bed so why not seize the opportunity? 

Then Susan from Living With Punks asked me to be a part of her Home Sewn Series, and I thought YAY it’s a perfect time for a sewing room makeover! I would show you before photos, but right now that would be way too embarrassing, so instead I’m going to show you my inspiration board for my new space!

Once I clean up my act a little, I’ll take a before picture. Spoiler alert: the walls are yellow, the curtains are bubblegum pink and there are safari animals on the wall.
For now please enjoy this sweet picture of my girls sharing a bed. They fight all day long, but somehow always seem to fall asleep like this.

  1. I like the idea of a star wall. Even with maybe one or two stars painted in gold. I feel like you can get away with things in a studio that you cannot in any other room of your house. Might as well live it up! 🙂

  2. Awww! Your girls are gorgeous. I would love a sewing room but have to make do with the corner of my sitting room at the table (when it isn’t being used for Play doh, or colouring by my kids) can’t wait to see your transformation.

  3. Love your colors! I am new to your blog–just came upon it during Project Sewn, and I am so glad I did! I have been considering making a new ironing board cover, since my ironing board is old, and bigger than all of the pre-made covers these days. Do you have a pattern or method for making a new cover?

  4. I am new to your blog, since Project Sewn, and I am so glad you participated! I have long been going to make a new ironing board cover, since my ironing board is old and big, and much bigger than the currently sold covers. Do you have a method or pattern for creating covers?

    1. Hi Tiffany! I’m so glad you’re here :-). The last time I made an ironing board cover I took the old one off and traced it, then added an allowance for the casing. Then I put elastic in the casing. Easy peasy!

I love feedback! What did you think of this article?
