Sewing in Harmony Part Two: Setting Up An Efficient Space ~ Layout & Furnishings

part 2

Hello!  Welcome to part two of my little mini series: Sewing in Harmony.  In this post I want to share with you steps I took in setting up my own space and ways I made it more efficient for me.   Everyone's space is going to be different so I hope you take from this ways to make your space work for you.  I will also be talking about furniture for your space and all the options available.

I'm finally getting some of my summer sewing list done. Funny huh? It's almost the end of August yo. Where the hell did summer go? I wanna know.  Not that I'm sad about it or anything.  It's been unusually cool here and I'm loving it.  Making me long for cozy sweaters, falling leaves and smore's from a bonfire...not from my gas stove....

New 7 Part Mini Series: Sewing in Harmony + A Giveaway!

sewing in harmony

Hello there!  During a late night room overhaul I was surrounded by a beautiful bounty of bias tape, rick rack and other various bindings.  Spoils of an awesome flea market find.  I was carefully organizing by type and color and I thought to myself..I don't know if I find more enjoyment out of organizing my stash or the actual bizness of sewing?!

DIY: Waistband Extension

I have a tutorial for you today!  If your waistband is feeling a little snug don't throw those jeans out just yet.   I have a rather simple fix...extend the waistband with elastic.

Sewing Swap & Vacation Haul

Hello all!! I'm back from the beach with a tan and recharged batteries.  I thought I'd share a few pictures of my trip along with the sewing goodies I brought back with me.  First though I want to share what I got in Kestrel's Spring Sewing Swap.  This is the 3rd swap Kestrel has hosted and the 2nd I've participated in.  I would like to thank Kestrel for hosting these swaps.  It's so much fun to get to shop for someone else when sewing notions are involved!  It's also fun meeting new peeps.  Thanks so much Kestrel!!

I was paired with Kristin of Sew Classic.  I really enjoyed shopping for her because we seemed to have the same tastes and I was right, we both got each other beautiful floral fabric!  If you would like to see what I got her take a looksie here.
