Step 4: Ta Daa!

The nice thing about this space is that I created  a little over 2 years ago, and it is still working for me now. It is a pleasure to sit down, and know my supplies are at my fingertips, or  within arms reach.  It has also been fairly easy to maintain.  Aside from keeping out the cats, being able to close the door has also meant that I can leave a project sitting out, and it's waiting for me when I come back... undisturbed!!

This little closet is hands down one of my favorite places to sit and work. And I hope sharing it helps inspire you to carve out a space for yourself. :-)

<p>well done looks great thanks </p>
Very practical good job
Great design, you literally thought of everything! How long did it take to plan?<br><br>Have a great day! :-)
<p>Heaven does exist</p>
That's a great setup for sewing. Thanks for sharing this!
Clever, practical, and simple. This is a great example to help others figure out their own solutions. Thanks for sharing.
<p>How do you hang the ribbons? A spring rod?</p>
<p>Nice. I am hoping to make my own sewing area in February and these are great ideas.</p><p>Two questions though please.</p><p>One, what do you make your templates out of?</p><p>Two, what is an &quot;elfa&quot; door rack system and what or how did you use it?</p><p>Thank you :)</p>
I also am a &quot;closet crafter&quot;, although mine is &quot;my&quot; half of a walk-in closet, so I have a bit more space to work with. <br>One suggestion, what about a hinged ring for your templates, instead of a string? <br>Otherwise, an excellent 'ible.
<p>This is wonderful. What a great way to start the new year with a new idea for organization. </p>
<p>Oh my goodness! This is brilliant! Why didn't I think of this! </p>
This is wonderful! I just got a sewing machine as a late Christmas present and I'm super excited to use it. Now if only my parents would let me do some closet converting...
<p>This is really nice, My grandma can definitely benifit from something like this</p>
<p>A closet door can prevent kitty &quot;help&quot;. Brilliant!</p>
Bravo! Even though my sewing space is much larger, I have incorporated many space saving ideas. I had not thought of the bobbin idea but &quot;necessity is the mother...&quot; I love seeing that someone else does the same thing! Hey, storage space is for the fabric, right?!
I like small spaces, and this seems an ideal use of space for a useful activity. It could be done in a similar way to cater for many other crafts.
u wouldn't beleave this i was just last night looking 4 some thing like this !!!!!!!!!!<br>so this is diffidently coming my home
As a quilter and crochet fiend, I can certainly see a version of this puppy in my future! With a few mods, I can once more walk into my studio without high stepping it over bags of yarn.
What a great space to work in!
Fantastic set up - I love the idea that all you have to do is close the door on a project and it will be waiting for your return, untouched. One seamstress to another, I can totally appreciate that!
I love this idea! It would be amazing to have all your supplies so close and be able to put everything away when you are done by simply closing the door. :)
You ROCK!!! This is a VERY clever idea, especially when you live in a place where having enough 'space' is always a big issue (like living in San Francisco).<br>And, if you are looking for free 'clear' storage containers ideas. Look no farther than your cupboards. A lot of our food items come in clear plastic containers that can be cleaned out and reused.
I like that idea... I usually keep all my sauce jars, and use them all over the place.
Wow this is such a great and compact work space. I'm working on getting my craft space together, I'll definitely use some of these ideas!
This is a GREAT idea!! I love it and this 'ible!!!
Efficiency at its best!&nbsp; It would be awesome if you had an extender table to pull the sewing machine out a bit for larger projects, but that depends on how you can work and what all you sew.&nbsp; The mini peg board shelves are very smart!&nbsp; I'm sure Martha Stewart would approve.&nbsp; :)<br>
