I Mean To Sew....

Photobucket

But... somehow, my sewing table keeps ending up looking like this. Not pretty or inviting or inspiring at all. 

Hmm...Something's gotta give.

  1. But at least you have the Machine! Lately, I've been itching to obtain a good sewing machine (whenever I get one, I want it to be good, not a cheap one that will break down within five years...). In my de-cluttering, I discovered yards of different fabrics that had inspired me once upon a time. As I looked at those yards of untamed fabric, I began to feel inspired again to create.... something, I'm not sure what. However, I need the machine to truly begin anything...

    Cluttered or no, I still love your little sewing nook! :)

  2. My sewing table looks like that too. So I moved my machine off of it and started using my kids art table. Hahaha.

    Just so you know, you can still sew when your sewing area looks like that. I finished up a little project myself tonight. Let's just gloss over the fact that we had to move the sewing table pile to the bed. And that it took half a dozen armloads to get it done. And that instead of putting things back in an organized fashion, I just dumped it all right back on the table. Bottom line is, my table looks way worse than yours but I made a Buttercup bag tonight. Sometimes just getting that first project completed from start to finish can help you get your sewing mojo back. That, and a deadline. ;) <3 ya!

  4. Yeah, I dream of a clear sewing table and inspiring place. Somehow fixing my own little messes takes a backseat to all the "other". Maybe pop the sewing machine to the dining room table for a night...

  5. Haha. This is what my craft table always looks like as well. Chaos.
