Short on space? Ever wish you had a dedicated
sewing and embroidery space? It doesn’t take as much room as you might think!
A quick online or social media search will
give you plenty of workspace ideas. Not everyone has a dedicated sewing studio
with lots of counter tops and an ironing island. Surprisingly, you really do
not need a large amount of space of your own. It is all in how your space is
These are a few of my favorite closet and cupboard
Armoires & Entertainment
Center Makeover by Remodelicious
Add a coat of paint, some baskets,
peg board, and under-counter lighting to an old entertainment center for a cozy
sewing nook. Typically, the main shelf pulls out so you can sew and go. Close
the doors when you are done and everything is out of sight!
Sewing Armoire by
This armoire takes the sewing nook
one step further with the addition of a drop-down table for even more sewing
and embroidery space. The table folds up when not in use and the armoire closes
up, keeping your machine and supplies under wrap.
Closet Spaces as Creative Places
Sewing Closet by
Often, all you really need is an
under-used closet. You don’t have to be a carpenter to pull off this project.
Use existing shelving and add a table top surface over purchased storage
Closet by DiybyDesign Judy
This former storage room got a
high-functioning makeover. Cabinets, a desk, and shelves make the most of
existing space. The window even acts like a skylight of sorts. When you are
done being creative, close the doors and the room looks tidy.
Closet Office With Corner Desk by Sew Woodsy
This space is perhaps my favorite
of all five. It takes the closet concept to a whole new level. The door-less
corner closet acts as a recessed work and storage space, then wraps around the
corner in a U-shape. That gives a lot of counter top area for hooping, ironing,
stitching, editing, cutting fabric, and a computer station.
Sew many great ideas!
