Jeni Baker  is the lucky girl this month. She shows us how she has transformed the second bedroom of her apartment into a "Sewing Haven" and explains the difficulties of doing so in a rented space. You can see how she used her creativity to overcome the obstacle. Bravo Jeni!!

 

"Sewing Haven"

I live in a tiny two bedroom apartment in Wisconsin with my boyfriend and pet bunny George.  I am very lucky to have the second bedroom for my sewing space.  It may be small, but it's mine, and I squeeze a lot into the space!

Since we are renters and we can't paint, I've tried to cover the white walls with as many mini quilts as I can, to bring color to the room. I love sewing mini quilts to test out a design or color scheme, and they make great wall art!

In addition to my fabric collections, I have my favorite vintage kitchenware pieces in the room, simply because they make me happy! I also use a lot of vintage tins, wooden boxes, and dishes to store threads, pincushions and other odds and ends.

I love being surrounded by color, it's pretty hard to be unhappy when you're surrounded by fabric and quilty goodness! :)

 

.... Thank you Jeni for showing us your space. Your creative use of fabrics and quilts to bring life in a rented space is exceptional. I also LOVE the kitchenware's... They are quite cheerful!
