One of my 101 goals is to create a quilting space for myself. I have no spare room in my house and can not use any common space for fear that a small child will disorganize my perfectly laid out quilt pattern or worse, find a spare pin on the floor. My solution? Make a collapsible sewing space that can be set up and taken down in the laundry room.
I collected ideas on Pinterest and have gotten moving on creating my space. If you want to see my idea board, just click here: Tiny Quilting Space.
Yesterday, I went to the fabric store and bought a length of metallic fabric for ironing boards to turn a wooden tv tray into a fold away ironing table to set up next to me when I am quilting. It was very easy to do with an industrial staple gun.
Next, I have a carpenter that I found on Craigslist who is building me a narrower version of this table from Ana White Homemaker:
When I want to work on a sewing project, I will wheel the laundry bins that I have in the laundry room into the hallway and open up my table to create a 5 foot long work space. My custom table will be only 18 inches deep so that I will have room to sit in front of it.
Now I am going to start working on my design wall. Off to the home improvement store for a piece of insulation!
