Fan Feature: Clean and Chic Sewing Room

Unfortunately the time to submit photos of your sewing room is over.
We hope you got a chance to check out all of the sewing spaces over on our Facebook page!
We had a lot of fun looking at everyone's space and wanted to extend a big thank you for your support and kindness.
But just because it's over doesn't mean we are done showing you inspiring rooms!
We couldn't resist showing you Holleigh's sewing room!
How amazingly clean and organized is this space?!
Don't you just love it!
We sure do! So we asked her a few questions about herself and this fabulous room.
What is your day job? Insurance Agent
What is your dream job? Purse Designer

What do you sew in your sewing room?
 Purses

What is your favorite part of your sewing room? The side-by-side tables.  One table is for my daughter to do her arts and crafts.
Give us an organizational tip: I have baskets and bins that fit perfectly under the tables.  I also use fishing lure boxes for small trinkets like buttons.
What was the inspiration for your sewing space? I wanted an area where I could sew, and my daughter could do crafts or relax. 

When/How did you learn to sew? Self-taught, about 9 years ago

How much time do you spend in your sewing room?  Not much anymore!  I started sewing when I was a pregnant housewife.  After the birth of my daughter, and going back to work about 4 years ago I have had less and less time to sew.  Just having the room, though, and having a place to keep all my favorite things makes me happy.  I think we all need a space that reflects who we are and what we love.

Where do you get your inspiration for your projects? I love purses that are made of beautiful fabrics and look for them on-line.  There was a lady in Canada who sold purses on Ebay about 9 years ago and she was my first inspiration.  My sister-in-law was also a huge inspiration.
What inspired you to put a beautiful couch in your sewing room? Wanting a comfortable area where my daughter could hang out.  There's also a bookshelf in the room filled with all my favorite books and so the couch provides a peaceful place where I can read.

Made By A Fabricista: Speaking My Truth

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more. This pandemic has allowed me to appreciate deep conversations about racial injustice, police brutality, and their feelings about growing up black.
My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black. She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race”.

My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!



Have you ever used a Burda Style pattern magazine?  I used to always subscribe the Burda Plus magazine which is for larger sizes, but they stopped making it in English and I stopped my subscription.  I missed it so much, that I took a chance and ordered it in French directly from France on burdastyle.fr.  It wasn't expensive- about $15 total including the po…
