Sewing Spaces - Irmartin ToursBy AlexisW on 6/5/14 2:36 PM

Considering remodeling your sewing room? From sewing furniture, organizational pieces, and decorative fixtures, it can be tough to update your sewing space on a budget.

Continuing our décor tour, irmartin keeps her space modern by using a neutral color scheme, combined with a well thought-out design. irmartin shows us her creative space-saver solutions for her cutting table, pressing station and sewing workplace. We love it!

irmartin says, “My sewing room has evolved over the past 2 years. I have a space that I absolutely love."
"Currently, I am in the process of moving my pattern collection to a space that will allow for growth. Smile  I had them in a dresser that I out grew. So I decided to store them in an elfa drawer system from the container store.”

What do you have on top of the Elfa drawers that you use for cutting out your fabric ? Also what did you use to make the ironing station ?

I love how you used the nooks of the dormer as well as the wall space. A full length mirror in the sewing room--what a luxury. Well done!!!

Great sewing room! I have a small section that doubles as my office and sewing room. It's hard to create the perfect sewing space because we are never in one place for long. Thanks for sharing some great ideas.

I would enter that room (with my two small dogs and their beds) and no one would see us again!!!! Thanks for sharing your excellent design style.

My small dog has a small bed in my sewing room, too. I say, "Let's go sew!" and she happily runs ahead of me to jump in her bed. It's one of our favorite, soul-mending things.

Great work space. I like your storage idea for the scissors. I think I will try it when I set up my crafts room.

What a beautiful and functional sewing space you have! Some day, I will have a sewing space, and I hope it will be half as wonderful as yours!

Love this sewing space! Great ideas for organizing

Your sewing room looks so nice. It looks neat and tidy. You have many great filing options to make the place look manageable. My sewing space is in the sun room next to the kitchen. I am forced to make it look good because it is right there in clear view of everything, most days it looks like an explosion took place. I love the inspirational sayings on your walls. Well done m'dear!

Great space! I just bought some of the Elfa drawer units recently and they are fabulous for organizing sewing notions.

Like your sewing room a lot. Do you have 2 IKEA Galant tables butted up next to each other for your sewing machine and sergers?
