Shruti's Sewing Space

I am aware that I have been neglecting this blog for a long time now! But I'm back now... And the first sewing room that I'm showing you guys is my own!


I just finished re-doing it and I'm loving it. The only thing I'm not loving is that it does not have the quality of light that my earlier sewing room had...

Here's a tour for you guys...

This is what you see when you enter the sewing room. Its right next to my living room. So it makes it easy for me to stay connected to the house!

Right in front of me is my pin-up wall with all the mini quilts and stuff I have received in swaps. The small knitted sweater is one made by my grandmother when I was pregnant with Aadi. (she passed away in the 6th month of my pregnancy and never could see Aadi wearing it) I keep my computer facing that wall. Don't you all agree that I should upgrade to a Laptop, especially since DH runs a Laptop Shop?

On the left, facing the window is my cutting and sewing table. In the corner I have a rack for all my "up"cycle stuff. My scraps are all sorted into bins and kept under my cutting table.

This door leads to Aadi's room! So I'm right next to him as I work - that makes me a happy mom!


This is the wall that is to the right of my computer wall. The book rack holds all my books, patterns, notebooks and my Harry Potter books! The table holds my smaller table with baskets below and above it and also my tiny scrap jars...  I'll be using the remaining table for ironing... 


This is the detail of the stuff on my small table... First - to the back are my tiny scrap jars sorted into - yellows-oranges, reds-pinks-lavs, blacks-whites, browns-beiges & blues-green. Then the three baskets hold (from right to left) Sewing Machine Stuff, Cutting instruments and hand sewing stuff... Under the table (from right to left) zippers, misc stuff and craft stuff (punches and tapes)


This is my cutting table along with my fabric storage. This is the fabric that I use most of the time. My batting and rarely used fabric is in the overhead cupboard - sorted in boxes.


Thats my thread rack along with the charpai stools I had made for my living room! And thats the door to the living room...


Here's my fabric stack once again! I just love how yummy it looks!


My room has evolved over the last two years and by no means is it going to remain this way for ever... But for now, it works! 

Cheers!!!

Your studio is wonderful. I also just created an all new studio! It's now on the main floor instead of an upstairs bedroom. Love it!
