Sewing Room Ideas for Small Spaces

This last week I finally got my sewing room in order.  It took me most of the month of January to organize, declutter, build and rearrange my new space, but I am so happy with it.  

Great list of several sewing room and craft room organization ideas especially sewing room ideas for small spaces.
This post contains affiliate links to products I recommend.  I do make a portion off any you may purchase.  See full disclosure here.

The hardest part for me was moving from an entire room for all my crafting and sewing supplies, to a small corner in my basement.  But I knew I could do it.  

Plus, there is so much inspiration out there for what you can do as well.  

Today I wanted to share with you some great sewing room ideas for small spaces that I've found.

Many of these ideas are from fellow sewing bloggers like myself, but many of them were the jumping off point for my own new sewing space.  

Each of them is unique and has some great organization idea or clever storage solution.  Take a moment to click through to each for even more fun photos and inspiration.
