Vintage Sewing Machine Table!

It’s New York, so of course I don’t have a spare room to turn into a dedicated sewing area.  Perhaps people out in the country have extra rooms for crafting and maybe that’s why they also have an abudance of fabric stores that we seem to be lacking.

To make the Supersized Tokyo Tie Bag, I set up the new sewing machine in the kitchen.  Let me just say that the kitchen “island,” was definitely not designed for sewing.  I know I will be too lazy to haul out the sewing machine and the ironing board and the cutting mat and all the other supplies every time I want to sew.  Just look at the pile of neglected scrapbooking supplies in the closet.

So I decided to take over a small corner and set up a (maybe temporary) dedicated sewing area.  The centerpiece is a vintage Singer sewing machine table that my mom had been using as a side table, perfect since I had just been planning on using an old folding desk.   The wood is too rough to leave uncovered because it’ll snag fabric, so I’d like to eventually make a table cover (or one day, refinish the wood table top).  Purl has really cute oil cloth, which I’ve been dying to find a project for.  But for now, an old table cloth will have to do.
