    My Craft Closet

    It's not Narnia but to me it's just as wonderful! I live in a small home with two children, two dogs and my dh. Having a space that is all mine is a blessing, even if it is only a closet and it's amazing when I can turn my iPod on and sew away the stress.Name:  image.jpg

    You can't see in this picture but on the side wall I have my cutting board and rulers handing up and up top I keep my needle felting, polymer clay and sewing items. This truly is my most favorite room in the house.

    Thanks, I use the ball to sit on when I'm sewing. I don't have the space to fit a chair inside once the doors are closed and the ball helps me sit straighter. Don't be fooled by how clean it is, after Christmas it looked like a bomb went off so I gave it a top to bottom clean.

    Love your sewing closet! A dedicated sewing spot is heavenly no matter the size.

    Very nice and pretty! Did you paint the flowers on the wall? They are BEAUTIFUL. Looks like you have made a very useable and neat space. Enjoy!....

    It is beautiful.

    I wish I could paint that well but actually everything in there (except the sewing machine) came from Walmart or Ikea. I had a garage sale with all the junk that used to be in there, then I took what I made and went shopping for everything you see.

    That is how I started sewing in my present home, in an upstairs closet. It worked ok but Hubby suggested I move to the basement level where I would have more room. He built shelves and re-purposed counters from our kitchen which were replaced with granite. Enjoy your beautiful space. It looks so peaceful in there.

    Beautiful. I love your space. With my crafts I wouldn't fit in the space. I love the ball too. I really like what you did.

    For a quilter, where there is a will, there is a way. And, you proved it with your wonderful little space. Love the flowers you put in the walls. These sticker art flowers, etc. are my favorite way to decorate my walls. Enjoy your SPACE. Oh, btw: you get an A+ for posture! LOL.

    I love the flowers on the walls! It makes your space so bright and cheery!
    Is it hard to sew sideways? LOL!!!

    My sewing machine desk was built into the closet also. My husband did this a couple of years ago.
    This is my main sewing room. The other room is where I do my quilting.

    At first I was a little bamboozled until I realized the photo was sideways! What a great craft closet. I wish my stuff would fit in such a small space. It's beautiful and calming. Enjoy it.

    I love how bright it is and I love the cork board. I tried taping family photos to the walls but they didn't stick too well. Is that a TV? I wouldn't mind one of those.

    sorry for the sideways picture... On my iPad its right side up.

    Yes it is, I also have satellite TV and a DVD player also. I have a Bose system to hook my Ipod to when I just want to listen to music. We put the cork board up there because my family is who I love to sew for. There is a 4 foot florescent fixture above my desk.

    It is pretty! I felt like I had "arrived" when I finally got my own sewing room! The flowers are so pretty. Enjoy. Micki
