Junkaholique Sewing Space Tour - Inspiring Spaces

We love to see sewists working in extra-creative spaces, especially when they inspire us to re-vamp our own space into something super special. Today we are bringing you a great deal of creative inspiration packed into a small shed-turned-sewing-space in London from fellow crafter Junkaholique, a 4 foot by 6 foot space recently decorated to take on any sewing project.

The Junkaholique blog stems from the mind of a jewelry designer by day, crafty explorer by every-other-moment. Her love for thrifty finds is perfectly organized in her new sewing shed, a tranquil space with just the right amount of decor to leave you ripe with inspiration. We especially love her vintage materials, treasures collected in her evening & weekend free time away from her & her husband’s jewelry workshop. What a great blend of creative endeavors!

This shed built from scratch by her brothers as a gift from her mother (what a fantastic gift!) measures a wee 4 feet by 6 feet, just the right amount of space for calm sewing so close to the outdoors. If you think not much can be accomplished in a small space, just check out her previous sewing projects and you’ll see just how productive she is! We love the idea of sewing in a space void of too much stash — a place just for the work part of it where you can think clearly. All sewing shed photos are taken by the artist, a sneak peek into her creative world.

White walls in a creative space – especially when a creative space involves such vibrant colors as fibers do – really make the color & texture of great materials pop. Sweet accents such a wall decor held up with washi tape add a hint of creativity in every corner, a simple way to put something up on a wall without the bulk of a frame & nail.

Does this wonderful tour of the Junkaholique creative space leave you ready for your own creative renovation?
