How do you keep your pattern pages and notes and other small items organized while you sew? I created this fun pin cushion bulletin board to contain the clutter. I covered cork board with red fabric and green accents and attached it to the wall with Velcro strips. It looks just like the very first pin cushion I ever owned… except it’s really really big!!! I use it to hold french curves, stencils, or anything else I’m using at the moment so that my counter is clear of clutter. This pin cushion is just one element of my sewing room that was once a spare bedroom. If you’d like to see the rest or to find out how one person created a sewing room on a budget, click on “ROOM” in credits below.

    That is so cute and clever. I must now go and use some of your tips to organize my sewing room (which is a disaster after all the Christmas sewing). I enjoy your Website very much, thanks again for all the tips and wonderful project ideas.

      Thank you for your comments and for visiting my website. I’m glad you’re enjoying it. I can relate to the Christmas mess! Even with an organized work space, it can get out of hand when I don’t put every thing away as soon a I’m done. And that’s what I did during the holidays. I’m sure I’ll be able to see the counter soon! : )

    I just clicked on room Must say that I already know you as a talent for creating – but I am surprised that you are also a talent for organization. :-) Thanks for sharing your tips how to create a sewing room… and thank you for considering a lower budget by planing this.

      Irmchen – if you’ll notice my theme on my website is CIFL create it for less. It also carries over into other areas of my life. Why pay full price when you don’t have to? Thanks for your very generous comments.
