We are constantly creating awesome sewing projects in the office and our sewing station is constantly in a state of chaos! Instead of using bins and plastic bags to organize our sewing materials I made this wall mounted sewing station to organize all of our sewing materials.
Step 1: Materials
Wood Board - 36" x 12", get a board that fits your wall
Fabric - to cover the board to make it pretty and to make bags
Nails - large and small nails, large nails are for thread spools and small are for bobbins, make sure the head of the nails are small so the spools can fit on them
Screws - to fasten board to wall
Eye Bolt Screws - Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Pin Cushions (2) - I made my own, but you could buy them
Step 2: Mounting Board
- Draw a line on your board where the screws will be attached, mine were 4" from one of the edges
- Mark 5 spots along that line where the screws will be drilled in, I had one in the center, 2 that were 3" from each edge, and 2 that were in-between the center marking and the 3" markings
- Make pilot holes in the board where you marked. Drill all the way through the board.
- Cut out a piece of fabric that is 6" wider and longer than the board
- Finish the edges by folding and sewing the edges of the fabric 1/2" over.
- Hot glue the fabric to the board
- Poke holes through the fabric where the pilot holes are.
- Place the board where you want it to be on the wall. I held it in place with clamps, if you don't have clamps have a friend hold the board.
- Make pilot holes in the wall by drilling through the five pilot holes in the board.
- Attach screws.
Step 3: Attaching Sewing Tools and Materials
- Thread spools
- Seam Ripper
- Pin Cushions
- Measuring Tape
- Safety Pins
Step 4: Nails and Eye Bolt Screws
Nails : hammer nails into board at a 45 degree angle to attach thread spools and bobbins, hammer at a 90 degree angle for needle package.
Eye Bolt Screws: screw into board and make sure the eye of the screw is parallel to the floor. Place scissors in eye.
Step 5: Elastic
Use hot glue gun to attach elastic. Glue each end of the elastic and lay it flat on the board so you can pull the elastic out and objects will stay put.
Step 6: Velcro - Pin Cushions and Bags
Use velcro to attach pin cushions and fabric bags. See next step for instructions on how to make the fabric bags.
I used this instructable to make my pin cushions: https://www.instructables.com/id/SewUseful,-easy-and-practical-a-pin-cushion-made-u/
Step 7: Making Bags
- Cut out a rectangle of fabric. The length of the rectangle should be 2x the length of the bag and the width should be the same as the width of the bag
- Fold over the shorter ends of the fabric a 1/2" and glue them down with hot glue gun
- Fold fabric in half and sew along edges, do not sew over the edges you just glued
- Fold one of the glued edges over again and glue down
- Turn bag inside out and attach velcro on the back.
