Sewing Room update

My Ikea Expedit bookshelves are together and attached to the wall of my sewing room. My next task is to fill the shelves with all the sewing stuff that is spread around the house in random cupboards, on the floor of the sewing room and in the shed. Once I have floor space I can get my desks built.

I found a fabulous tutorial to make my own fabric storage boxes for my new sewing room shelves. I haven't been able to find anything that fits the spaces well, and I want it all to coordinate. So it makes sense to make them myself.
Here is the photo that inspired me to coordinate my shelving:

Isn't it gorgeous? I can only hope my shelves will look this neat and tidy all the time. I'm thinking my colour scheme will be pink and white... perhaps with a lime green accent?


  1. oohh looks great, will have to post pics of my sewing room too. love the idea of co-ordinated holders. a lot smarter than my multiple shoe boxes.

  2. Great idea, Shelle. I can imagine pink and white and lime green looking nice and fresh and clean. Can't wait to see them.
