So, there has been a break in blogging, time to get back to it 😉
I bought one of those Ikea computer cupboards from a lovely lady via Ebay last winter to store some of my sewing goodies in and to have somewhere to sew and stash my WIP’s. I know how I LOVE looking at other peoples storage ideas to pinch them, so maybe you might recognise some things……
Here is the top shelf. I used Ikea storage mostly. The top shelf has media boxes for the smaller fabric samples you get, the scraps you can’t bear to throw away because they WILL come in handy for something, WIP’s small enough, and bunting in progress. The drawer unit holds zips, bindings, sewing machine gubbins, scissors etc.
The beautiful pin cushion was made for me by the lovely Shelly
Here is the main body of the cupboard, I can pop my chine on the pull out shelf and then put it back on top for storage. The red, blue and green pop up baskets are from the kids section in Ikea and are full of pieces of lace, ribbon and buttons. The plastic drawer unit is full of reels of ribbon. There are a couple of plastic boxes from Dunelm mill to the right, good square boxes with good snap on lids.
Do you like my thread holder? My son made it this summer with my dad who was a cabinet maker. I just LOVE it.
The bit at the bottom is supposed to be for my fabric stash, and no where else, but um, well, you can clearly see that there is not enough room there! But this is all in clear plastic boxes from, you’ve guessed it, Ikea. Then there are some slotted in to the left from Dunelm filled with tassles, any ideas what I can make using hundreds of tassles…………
