Looking for small sewing studio suggestions!

Here are two more smallish sewing studios, one from HGTV and one from MpressiveThreadzStudio.  And of course Tilly's idea to check out the photos on Flickr for Craft Rooms.  

In the meantime, I'm not so sure I'll get the whole room after great idea to add a bedroom basement and bath really isn't possible...or is it?  Anyway, that tiny space may end up being a single bedroom (murphy bed back on the possibilities list) and a sewing room!  Uh oh.  So I'll need suggestions for even-smaller-space-sewing-studios!  In the meantime, I'll give you a look at the room, which has no closet (there's one outside the room, across the hall), and only bi-fold doors.  Of course it's got a window & a nice ledge for books & kitty.

Notice the nice neutral ultra modern paint.  I love it & the whole house is like this (different colors, none of them buttercup)!  Which is great, when you see our decorating style; we have plenty of interest & this picture you can see that yes, Indiana Jones is our interior decorator.  Mola (framed) from Panama.  Whale vertebrate from the coast of Oman. Basket from Botswana.  Fabric stamp from Iran.  Bakelite radio from our old radio collection.  And the Bobo mask, which I carried on my lap on buses thru W. Africa and even on the plane, is from Burkina Faso.


  1. What a cute room! I have a small house and am currently making one of my rooms into a sewing space. I think the key is organization.

  2. Yes, I agree. And now it doesn't have to be a guest room after I'll have a bit more room. Seems like all the sewing studios that work well have lots of shelves, boxes, storage. I love lots of cubbyholes, so this should be a fun project. I think my biggest problem is going to be getting enough working space in there. I can have shelves and storage hung on the walls, but getting a sewing table & a place for a cutting board both into the room might be a challenge. Well, I guess only a challenge if I want to move around in the room, too! ;-)


You don't have to say you love me...
