‘Livudio’ is our portmanteau for living room/studio. Good things can happen in small spaces.
Although I dream of an actual studio to call my own, I love my little space. I allows me to hang with my family while I sew.
I thought of tidying it up for Pink Chalk Fabric’s Where I Sew Month, but then the sun started shining and seeing things in their real state rarely happens in Blogland so I just went with it.
Unfortunately, my fabric lives in the closet that connects our bedrooms.
Sometimes I think this is good, because if I was allowed to sit in the same room with it, I might spend more time daydreamin’ about projects than making them.

Coincidentally, my friend Chara (Chara Michele Photography) was over the other day helping me with a headshot for the book and she snapped some photos of my fabric. Above is my small cuts shelf.
On the other side of the closet are some larger cuts of prints. I have another large shelf in my clothing closet of solids and some print collections, but it’s too dark for a good photo.
It’s ridiculous, seriously.
My sewing area is a cluttered space, but organized and everything is within reach. I like containment, as I’m
fairly anal when it comes to order.
I often place this large table to cut on and when I’m ready to quilt something move my machine onto it.
Moving the machine to quilt allows me to view the tv. I like to watch series when quilting if I’m not listening to music. I store class samples and leftovers from projects in the book below.
My favorite art work lives in the livudio.
The location also allows me to keep track of the shenanigans in the yard through the windows.
On the far side of the room is more storage and my design walls.
My design walls are layered upon one another so there is always room for on-going projects without disturbing the arrangement of those underneath. You can see what I’m talking about and do this for your own sewing room on this post.
This is likely the livudio’s last view with the blue wall. I’m going light blue on all walls with white ceiling and trim.
I’ve been collecting Sewing Studio ideas on my Pinterest board and would love to see what ingenious tips and design you all have, especially if you sew in a tight space, so I’ll be following ‘Where I Sew’ month closely.
Happy Sunday and hope you find some time to sew!
