Hi! I think its only fitting that I share an update on my new cutting table on WIP Wednesday ... since my sewing room is still a work in progress. (I promise to finish cleaning it up and share some photos with you! :-) I really wanted a bigger space to cut fabric since moving my machine every time is really annoying. So, I decided to make a smaller version of the one we have at the shop. It's really easy to do so I thought I'd share a quick tutorial here ...
I had a 3x3 shelf already ... you know one of those you can get from the big box craft stores and you just screw the boards together. I picked up a second one and placed them back to back with some space in between them.
They are about 36" wide and so I asked my pops to cut a board that was 36" x 45" to span across them and make a table. So you'll need a board and a felt back table protector pad.
Unfold the table protector face down and put the board on it. Trim to size and fold over the edges and secure with tape. I just used some packing tape on the corners and a few places on each side.
Now, just place it on top of your bookcases and viola!
Lots of space for baskets and cutting! (Looks like I could use a bigger mat!) I decided to put a basket of my WIPs on my table so they are more "in my face!" :-)
What do you think? Do you have a cutting table or special set up?
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Happy Sewing! :-)
