You want to see my sewing space? It is very compact and a little messy but it does it's job!! My creative books, knitting needles, pens, paintbrushes, rulers, fabric, threads, buttons... all in one ikea unit!! Also I have my book binding tools and leather in one of the black store boxes.
What drives me nuts is when I want to draw or get creative because there is no space and what space I make I have to clean away at the end of the day. It distroys all creative flow!!
And the floor space is my table!
