All Sewn Up

I may have already mentioned this, but at the very top of my Christmas wishlist, somewhere near the years worth of flowers, is a sewing machine. I haven't sewn in years, but I used to be able to whip up some fairly respectable (albeit insanely simple) goodies back in the day.

And even though space is at a premium in my apartment, the inspiring Rachel over at Red Velvet Art has provided me with all the proof I need that bigger isn't always better.

She's put a compact corner to great use with a fantastic array of fabrics, containers and wall hangings.

She converted an unused basket into an adorable light fitting, and I'm loving the slatted green wall hanging with the bright pink frame. Such a simple and renter-friendly finishing touch!

Although I doubt I could get away with so many nail holes, these clip boards make for fantastic inspiration boards, plus they're perfect if you need to grab a collection and pop off to a meeting.

The whole space is compact and supremely comfy, and most importantly, full of inspiration!

So whilst I keep dreaming about a sewing machine somehow finding its way under my tiny little Christmas tree, I'll also keep dreaming about my cosy little craft nook. This time next year, it will be mine! Stay tuned!

How fabulous, I hope Santa grants both your wishes :)

I've nominated you to continue on the 7 Things challenge - would love to know more about Kit. Details are over @ Endless Inspiration. No obligation, as I know its a busy time of year.

Merry Christmas
