A magical place to create and play and learn for my sweet Haileybelle. We started with a nice, deep countertop with plenty of storage underneath.A fabric skirt with chenille ball trim
and some vintage pillowcases
keep clutter hidden and add a touch of charm!
We surrounded the counter with floor to ceiling shelving on both sides. A piece of scalloped wood trim painted white encloses her space and gives it that special touch.
I happily realized that I have found the perfect place - across the top - to showcase my vintage children's books. More serendipity!
She has her own bulletin board which she can decorate however she chooses. Check out the blue and red ribbons from county fair two years ago. I'm so proud. She was only 7 when she got those!
She has already raided my sewing room and completely filled her shelves underneath with fabric and trims.
I think the crowning touch is the Hello Kitty sewing machine. So sweet. She has her beginner sewing and quilt books and is ready to learn. She already grabbed a doll body from my basket and used her scraps to dress her.
She found a box of scrapbooking items and was off to make something to hang on her bulletin board. With her and her brother running around both talking to me at the same time and trying to visit with my daughter and son-in-law I never got a chance to look at it. After they left I came down to shut off all the lights and read what it said. I love it. I love her. I am so blessed.
"I love Grandma", that's priceless. Last week the three year old angel in my life was 'reading' a storybook to herself when she said, "I love Grama. (turns the page) But she's not Mama." Hee hee.ReplyDelete
that is the sweetest sewing space!ReplyDelete
So cute! Such a sweet space for a sweet granddaughter.ReplyDelete
I covet that Hello Kitty sewing machine.
What a sweet Granddaughter! She is very lucky to have such a wonderful Grandma. :) Your studio does look magical!ReplyDelete
What a terrific space! I need to get my 6 year old granddaughter sewing. I didn't even know there was a Hello Kitty sewing machine either. That is so stinking cute. I heart that.ReplyDelete
She has her own craft room! I am so jealous!!!ReplyDelete
What a sweet and creative sewing space!! I love all you vintage books, and sweet touches!! Great job! Happy Sewing Julie!! ;) xo HeatherReplyDelete
Oh that is gorgeous , what a lucky girl !ReplyDelete
My grandma didn't make me a crafting space, but she gave me a wallpaper covered wooden box to store my dolls and sewing supplies for when I came to visit. We both would spend the time making doll clothes. I wasn't her only granddaughter,but I was the oldest and (I always believed) the most favored. =DReplyDelete
what a sweet creating space!! i'm hoping i can do a cute space for my girls sometime!ReplyDelete
Your sweet Haileybelle is going to have many hours of joy and learning in this darling sewing room! She will grow up to be a talented seamstress...and, all because her Momma and Daddy invested in her when she was young.

Thought of you when George Lindsay died...so long Goob. It's hard to believe he was 83, I think those characters stay in their youth in our minds.
Hailey will always remember the times she spent crafting with her grandmother! What a sweet crafting area you've built for her! She's a real cutie pie!ReplyDelete
