Apparently, I really like organizing and making things for my sewing studio. I also love pretty quilting fabrics with dressforms and sewing machines and beautiful dresses in which to make things out of. 🙂
I found a tutorial for these pattern weights on Pinterest:
I used the same concept as in the tutorial, although mine are smaller (I don’t know why they need to be so big….) and mine are filled with BB’s instead of beans. That’s why mine are not as full as they would be too heavy if I filled them up. I didn’t want to use anything organic in mine….
I used scraps of material for this. This is a Robert Kauffman dress form fabric that I found on etsy. I had previously made a cover for my other sewing machine and an ironing board cover with it.
I made my own pattern for my sewing machine cover and used this beautiful vintage French sewing machine and dressform fabric I found on Amazon. Perfect to cover a sewing machine! And yes, I probably should have ironed it…….
And this is my sewing machine organizer. I used Butterick 5767 to make this. It’s a super easy pattern to make. I also made one for my MIL for Christmas.
I found this hard-to-find Scarlett fabric on etsy and actually had to buy a lot with the other Timeless Treasures Gone With the Wind fabrics to get it as it’s sold out and I couldn’t find it elsewhere. That was fine, as I used the other fabrics to make my GWTW tree skirt, plus a mini tree skirt for my MIL and her sewing machine organizer.
I have a lot of organizers patterns in my collection and I’m always buying things to store stuff in or repurposing things to store stuff in…. perhaps I’m a bit obsessed with organizing….. especially when it comes to my sewing room. Thus the reason why I haven’t posted photos of my studio yet. That, and I’m currently renovating 1/2 of it. 🙂
