Do you struggle finding a craft area in your small space? Finding an area in your home for crafting supplies isn’t impossible, even in a small space! Sometimes you have to work with what you have. Keep reading to see how to make a craft area in a small space.
Do you struggle finding an area in your house for crafting? I know I do! We currently live in an 800 square foot FEMA trailer. This was a temporary living situation for quarantine, however it has gone on a little longer than I had hoped! I had to get creative finding a craft area in our small space. I find shelving to be a super helpful solution.
1) Small Space Craft Area: Shelving
One of the most helpful things in a small living space is shelving! I take advantage of shelving pretty much everywhere. It is basic wire shelving I ordered from Walmart, it is also available on Amazon. This is where I keep my sewing machine, my Cricut Joy, and some sewing supplies, the green container was a gift from a friend, it has my sewing machine pedal and other random supplies. Just measure the width you need, there are a lot of options! My husband used anchors to hold everything.
2) Small Space Craft Area: Workspace
Next you will need some sort of workspace! This is a makeup vanity I took the mirror off of. The drawer is super useful for random sewing items. I mainly use the kitchen table or the floor to cut fabric/patterns. I have seen some people use closets as their small space craft zone.
3) Small Space Craft Area: Storage
When you craft you need a lot of storage, even in a small space! My 12 year old wasn’t using this plastic tower so I converted it into craft storage! It used to be her uniform tower when she was in school, (she is in all virtual school now). I also have some totes of fabric in a closet.
4) More Storage!
These cubbies are where I keep my patterns, scrap fabrics, and random books! It is kind of a catch all for me.
