  1. Cecilia says:

    Well, I don’t have a devoted sewing room yet, but my sewing “corner” has a table runner that I have made, and a few pincushions! I can’t wait for a sewing room all my own- and since we will be moving soon, that day might come pretty quickly!! :)

  2. Kelli says:

    If I had a sewing room I would make wallhangings. I need to make a cover for my sewing machine. Seems to always end up on the bottom of my to do list.

  3. Barb S. says:

    Not yet, just retired and trying to finish up my UFO’s. I would like to make a sewing machine cover and cushion for my chair. Thanks for the 13 days of giveaways contest!

  4. Yes! Fabric bins are the best for holding patterns :)


  5. marcia ziegler says:

    Would love to create a lovely “throw away” bag – to fill with reuseable scraps as I create them with each project.

  6. Mama Lusco says:

    I made curtains, but need to make pretty, matching sewing machine/serger covers.

  7. Gloria Charles says:

    Sewing is my passion. I made curtains and sewing machine and serger cover from the fabric with the old McCalls pattern print. Love it!

  8. Mary Mac says:

    You Would laugh if you saw my sewing room. It’s my basement and I share it with my husbands workout equipment. I don’t think he would let me put up pink curtains. It wouldn’t match the bowflex.

  9. Mary M Rose says:

    I collect different pin cushions and have made many , also a cover for a 5 gallon paint bucket that I use for garbage, I knit and have made knitting needles holders, .I have reuphostered my sewing chair and a few carryalls.

  10. Melissa Harrison says:

    No, because I don’t have a sewing room. I sew on a table in my living room.

  11. Janelle Rench says:

    I haven’t sewed for my sewing room yet, but have material all picked out for a sewing machine cover!

  12. Shirley says:

    My room has been a work in progress for several years. I have the materials to make a “design wall” from flannel, large grommets, and curtain rods so that it can duel duty as design space and curtain over the stash.

  13. sunny says:

    No I don’t. I want to greedily save all my sewing time for other projects.

  14. Pat Hersl says:

    Didn’t think I did, but hung my latest quilt up in there.

  15. Penny says:

    Ive sewn a pin cushion/thread catcher (the tutorial for which is here: other than that nothing for my sewing area. I’ve been wanting to make a pocket/thread catcher/ pin cushion that sits under the machine and hangs off the table… I’ve seen a few around. The thread catcher I made keeps sliding off my wooden table.

  16. Ali M says:

    Well I have in the plans to make a sewing machine cover and a sewing chair cover/cushion, but so far I have only made some thread catchers. Once I catch up on my currents work in progress I really will get onto some of that stuff!

  17. Carol K E says:

    I have made a pincushion and thread catcher and have a hoop holder and chair covers in process.

  18. Wellllllll, that would be, i think about it, yes, i have, but sorry to say, sewing for my sewing room is a lower priority. maybe i’ll do better. i do need a thread catcher and i could use another machine cover and and and

  19. tammy t says:

    I would love to make a sewing machine cover. I still use the hard plastic cover it came in. I have only made a triangular cover for my sewing scissors and small rotary cutter.

  20. Mary M says:

    I’ve sewn a cover for my sewing bench. I’ve made a sewing machine cover for my Mom and haven’t made one for myself yet.

  21. Charlotte says:

    I have made curtains and a thread catcher. Otherwise, I just try to keep it picked up which is hard.

  22. Marie Waterman says:

    I have not sewed for my sewing room but I intend to one day! Since I started sewing earlier this year, I’ve been too busy with other projects. It’s definately on my to do list!

  23. Cindi Alexander says:

    I have recently been looking at different things online to start fixing up my sewing room. So much can be done do improve it and I am ready to get started! Up until now I have only done the small things like pin cushions for the sewing room.

  24. coasters, quilts, wall hangers, i’ve thrown together a couple of totes to haul my stuff around the house… i just love to sew!

  25. Virginia Darwin says:

    My sewing room is my bedroom and I made the curtains, so I guess you could technically say that I sewed from my sewing room!

  26. erika says:

    I haven’t yet but have a few projects in que for my sewing space.

  27. Diane Jones says:

    I’ve sewn some stuff in the past for various sewing rooms but not lately. Have to change that now that I’m retired.

    I make upcycled accessories.

  29. natali says:

    I have made a pincushion and a needleholder. Nothing big but really cute :)

  30. Irene Kugler says:

    Over the years I have been bumped out of the spare bedroom(my sewing room) So I decided to take over the small garage and Made it into my “Sewing- She Cave”
    I dry-walled the walls, added a window and a new door, decorating with rope lights, added lots of shelves for my favorite sewing things,and fabric. I am in the process of making curtains for the window and the door.

  31. Sunny says:

    Aside from a weighted bag for scraps, I made a fabric folder to separate and hold all my machine needles. My sewing machine is covered with a quilt from my childhood that my sister spilled nail polish on. I also have hanging on my bulletin board a “glossary” of all the stitches that my cam driven 1955 Elna can do.

  32. Susan says:

    Just downloaded a machine embroidery design for a sewing machine cover!

  33. Sue Marshal says:

    My piles and piles of fabric and colorful spools of thread are the perfect decorations for my sewing room! If I made something special – I wouldn’t have room to hang it.

  34. Linda says:

    I have made pin cushions, curtains and a scrap bag. I love to make wall hangings and put them up where I can view them from my sewing machine. They inspire me!

  35. Terri Achmann says:

    I sew for any and every reason! I’ve certainly made storage bins, boxes, baskets, bowls, hanging storage… for the sewing room and for the rest of the house! Lately, I have a lot of fruit/veggie baskets hanging around, and I think they will become fabric-covered storage vessels too ;-)

    Love it!

  36. ellen kudron says:

    I made a sewing machine cover with matching pin cushion and thread catcher to match my sewing room.

    I have been thinking about making a sewing machine cover, but have yet to make one.

  39. Marilyn Moss says:

    I have made curtains for my sewing room as well as for two other rooms in the house. I’ve also made cushions for the 3 seat window seat in what was my son’s room and now my daughters room. Pillows are the next thing on my list. In my previous house I’d made a number of appliance covers for kitchen counter appliances.

  40. Trudy L says:

    Not a lot, but I have made a cover for my sewing chair, shortened an old pair of curtains for it and made a cushion for another chair. So yes, I have.

  41. Lawana Whaley says:

    yes and have several more projects to do for it, after everyone else’s stuff is done..LOL

    Not yet. It’s on that to do list right after clothes for the new baby and the toddler (and maybe myself at some point!).

  43. Susan says:

    I haven’t sewn for my sewing room, other projects get in the way. I have made sewing kits for gifts and kept one. I think the room needs a make-over.

  44. Beth B says:

    I’ve made valances for my sewing room and am planning a sewing machine cover and some other storage related projects.

  45. Robyn says:

    I’ve done just a little sewing for my sewing room…I made curtains and turned a closet door into a design wall. I love fabric boxes and have some planned to make. But, frankly I am so busy sewing for everyone else that my wish list grows longer instead of shorter.

  46. wendy says:

    I made a thread catcher, for my sewing space and a machine cover. I just got a new sewing machine so I am currenlty deciding/designing my new machine cover. I am trying to decide if I make it out of a fabric that matches the room or a beautiful fabric.

  47. Margo says:

    I’ve sewn pincushions and a bag for my snipped-off threads for my sewing room. I need to sew a curtain for the window in my sewing room!

  48. Sharron Smothermon says:

    I have a list of what I need to make, and the fabric..but thats as far as I’ve gotten. I have accumulated 9 machines over the years and want covers made for each and notion holders for underneath!

  49. Mary White says:

    I’ve sewn a few things for my sewing room…several wall hangings, a machine cover and a few coasters to keep next to my machine for my coffee cups. I’m currently working on a pair of curtains.
