Looks like a great, cozy spot to do your sewing! Love Cesario! Great idea to have detachable weights.

As others have said, Cesario is so cute! What a great idea for detachable pattern weights. My patterns weights are glass tea light candle holders. They aren't too wide but are thick and and the perfect weight so work very well. They are heart shaped and a pleasant surprise is that the point end works very well in narrow areas on patterns. I keep them in a basket with a handle so are easy to grab and move around.

Congrats on making your tiny space work so well! You are a master organizer!

Oh what a sweet place to create! Instead of wishing for something bigger you have created a cozy refuge.

Thank you. I think your using candle holders and a great idea. They're inexpensive, come in different colors, when empty can hold smaller things like pins, and are probably available in a lot of stores.

Cesario was fun to make. Technically, he was a prototype but I liked the way his body isn't perfectly straight (matched my scoliosis - purely by accident!) and how his tail feathers don't exactly match, so I kept him as-is.

Here's a picture of him going tailless. You can see how I had to reinforce the stitches around the magnets to keep them in place. I made pockets for the magnets inside the 'feathers' but found they liked to move too much and was afraid they'd eventually break through the stitching.

I just realized I forgot a picture of my covered ironing board. Whoopsie. Broken legs removed, covered in batting then with a fabric cover I made. Poked holes through the fabric and applied a permanent glue to prevent fraying. Inserted hooks and other things for additional storage and as a way to reuse the ironing board.
