Fabric organization & craft room inspiration

I'm not really excited about the moment I have to pack my fabrics.
Let me tell you, it's a mess. I will brace myself and make some pictures, before, during and after, hopefully. It really is something, you know. I have tons of fabric, scraps and materials and I have tried many times now, to make a proper destash. But, as I started my business lately, I had to break it off, because I can't use many of the fabrics I already own, for doggie-stuff.

But once again, a possibility shows: I'm moving into a house with a room big enough to make it a craft room.
As I wonder about the colour style and try to arrange it with 3D planning software, I ACTUALLY got the idea to browse for other craftroom-styles. Hooray! :D

I'm in love with this room! I've been a sucker for black furniture as long as I remember. Currently I'm on a path of white, shabby inspired stuff, but I'm thinking a looot about this black or nut-brown accents.

I also like the letters in matching colour. Oh, and here's a report about the process.

This is also a very, very practical and cheap way to store fabric. Look it up here.

Neat, too. But my fabrics mostly are 2m+

Put it in boxes! Well, I did that already with other stuff, and in retrospect, it's not my thing.

 You can always go for the big Expedit from Ikea and try something like this?

Except for the fabric simply stashed, I'd go for the rest. Very well done, and including the first two links, this will effect my style, too.

Neat and cozy.

Yeah, nightmare come true. (Not my room, but my nightmare :D)
At least, I have to give him/her credit for the woodworking skills.

Rolled fabric looks great, too!

LOVE this color combo somehow. I have already red accents in my room, and it seems I will also stay with a blue color-scheme in the craft room. So a style like this would be fitting without spending too much money. The idea with the ironing board is making me ....facepalm. Why didn't I think of that before!?

Big fan of neutrals, too.

Lovely green-tint.
Lovely purism. And great idea for fabrics in small pieces.
Birds? You can ALWAYS get me with birds. First thing I see.

And naturals/botanicals.

Love the shelving.
 Blue and neutrals? Win!


Oh, my god. I think, this is it. White stays white. Red things (good motivator!), and blue. Yess.

Many pictures found here and here.
And another post here.

Moving into a house!

 I'll be busy the upcoming time, many things have been happening this year.
We're moving into a house with a huge garden and many dogs. I'm happy, life is good.

As I browse the net for inspiring home stuff, I will mostly post here:

Mostly in german but nice pictures anyway :)
We will get the keys in September and move in about 4 weeks. 
The first renovations will take place in maybe 2-3 weeks.
Still haven't decided on a color for my sewing room. Blue? Red? Currently I am green but I think I'll change that. Maybe white with a hint of red? I need a motivating room. 


Many projects are in making, I started a dog-fashion business:

Shop will be updated soon with new products and a relating project involving a fashion show for dogs will become reality soon. I'll keep you posted.
For now, dogs and moving stuff  have priority, but I hope to move on with my private sewing stuff, soon. 
I finished some garments, like blouses, dresses, skirts, pants and a leather bag a while ago, but I didn't consider it to be worthy to blog about. The bag maybe. A photodump is due anyway. 

Hope you all are doing well!

Fall attire

Good to be back!
As very soon we will move to a new house (a house!) so I'm pretty occupied.. buuuut nevertheless,
I'm thinking of sewing some pieces up for fall.

How about matchy matchy stuff... ?
Maybe a bag and a coat? I don't know if that would be too much or look pleasing.
Well, let's see, what are the options:

can't decide yet. but, I'd like to take waxed canvas
like this, found via ikea

inspirational piece was this item:

Rain Coat by Maison Scotch

I tried it on, and I LOVED it, but, the fit wasn't ...the best. So I decided to wait.
And ...nothing happened of course. Well, now, that ikea has a similar fabric in stock, I'd give it a go!
Well I'd tweak the whole thing a bit, but you get the idea.

Now I'm off for a walk .. but I will come back with ideas for a fitting pattern / style.
