Until recently, my sewing supplies were found in five different places. The fabric in a wooden chest, tools in a dresser drawer, and machine in a spare closet. Our goal when creating my office closet was to make an area where I could work, read, create and do everything BUT sew. We just don’t have the room to set up a permanent area for this type of crafting. At the same time, we wanted to create mobile sewing stations that would contain all of my supplies, and be easily rolled to the dining room table.
Enter two Ikea Micke Drawer Units. As you can see in the image above, we removed the bottom two drawers in one of the units, creating a perfectly sized area for my sewing machine.
The rest of the drawers hold all of my supplies, like cutting, measuring, and marking tools.
Bags of thread, bobbins, zippers, and other trims. I have yet to find a more efficient way of storing little notions like this.
A third drawer holds sewing manuals, instructions, and patterns.
The largest drawer holds folded fabric, with smaller pieces tucked into a giant Ziploc bag in the back.
The units take about 30 minutes to put together. All in all, a super easy project (thanks to the hubby and a nephew for putting them together!) that added a lot of peace of mind and saved me time.
