Welcome to my home studio
This where all the hat-making magic happens! I’m excited to share a mini photo tour with you! You can see where my fabrics live before they get cut, sewn and shipped to you. It’s filled with happy colors and sentimental pieces that inspire me!
Money well spent
A lot of primer, cute drawer pulls and glass-like knobs add the finishing touches to this cheap out-dated shiny hutch turned portable shipping station. This was the crowning addition to the shop after sitting in the garage for six months. The ocean blue paint was a no-brainer as I used it to match the armoire the sits in the front of the shop.
Could’ve got for free
When an adorable yellow desk is sitting on the side of the road and you love it?…grab it! Well, I didn’t snatch it out of the rain that day BUT it ended up at our local resource center store with a $10 sticker on it (thank goodness!). Insead of having my dad build an iron station, I pulled this together instead – quite lovely I might add. And, as far as finding things on the roadside?….if it’s somewhere out there – somehow I’ll find it, just ask my sisters.
So, a lot of people ask me about standing while I sew. Perhaps I’ll need to write a whole blog about this topic alone. But in short, yes, I stand while I sew right there on that skirted table. It’s efficient, comfortable and no more back trouble. More about that precious skirted table – I made it a loooong time ago for our first house. It has been through many cross-word puzzle nights, our first born’s spitty-uppies, our growing families first supper table and now a table for sewing – oh the memories! That portable turquoise armoire was a gift from my dad sevenn years ago. One day he decided to whip something together with scrap wood and it turned out to be that!…the talent of a wood-worker!
On the cut table
Okay, another labor of love from my dad (and mom!). My parents old counter top turned giant cut table – I’m so lucky! This cut table is the perfect size for all my hat-cutting and pattern making needs. Didn’t I tell you?…I love fabric!
