The other day on Instagram stories Adrianna of Hey June was talking about where her pattern names come from. While I was watching it I realized I don’t think I have ever shared where my pattern names come from.
When I started my business in the fall of 2014 I tried to think of something that was personal to me that I could easily translate into names for my patterns. I knew I didn’t want to do peoples names but beyond that wasn’t entirely sure what I did want. I finally realized that I could easily tie it into the fact that I live in Seattle.
When I first started this blog I gave you a glimpse into my sewing space, which at the time was a table in the laundry room. Make sure to check out how clean and organized that space was, as I cover my face in embarrassment. I can’t believe I actually posted pictures when it looked like that. I guess you can guarantee I will keep it real around here.
Thankfully I redeemed myself and posted again about my sewing area but this time with it all organized and clean.
One of the first posts I did on this blog was showing you what my sewing space looks like. Read what I had to say about my sewing space before here.
Here is a picture of what my sewing space looked like a until today.
I am not even sure how I ever got anything done in that space. It was cluttered and overwhelming to say the least. Usually I would end up at the dining room table cutting out fabric and ironing because I just didn’t have the space I needed to work. Don’t get me wrong I am so happy there is a place in the house for me to work I just needed to get a bit of organization in there so I could be more relaxed when sewing.
In a perfect world I would have a bright and airy sewing studio that I went to every morning with my LARGE coffee and I would spend the day sewing and blogging and being creative on the computer. Check out the Olahbelhe Sewing Studio and drool with me over how beautiful it is.
While that space is beautiful and maybe one day I will have a space like that I am just thankful that I have a space I can leave my sewing machine out. It is so hard to get motivated to sew if you don’t have a space where all of your sewing stuff can stay out and organized. In the interest of keeping it real here on the blog I wanted to show you a picture of what my sewing space looks like.
