Thrifty Finds

This week saw a new addition to my workshop. My very own little sewing machine table. I have needed a part of the workshop set up for just sewing for ages now but have not found the right kind of table anywhere. It's not that I'm fussy, its more of a space issue! The workshop is filled with desk space for making, creating and designing, an area for all my supplies, an area set aside for made up creations, a photographing space, an admin and computer area and a wrapping and packing space. This does not leave too much room for my sewing machine, bags of fabric and all my stitching kit!

So when my husband to be arrived home after an afternoon thrift shopping, I was so excited with his find! A vintage mangle hiding under an absolutely perfect sized enamel table top.

It is just what I needed, a sturdy little table that looks super retro too and only a tenner too! I am in love with my new uncluttered sewing space. So much so, I set to work making up some gorgeous new fabric hair accessories. I have a few more designs to make so will have them available in the shop by the end of the week!

Until then, here's a sneak peek at 1 of them.
