Sew Inspiring Rooms {Vintage Trailer Lady}

Welcome to

Today we have Stephanie, the Vintage Trailer Lady, here to share her creative space with us!  Stephanie and I met the other day at the fabric store I work at.  She's a reader of A Little Bit Biased and told me she might have a few pictures to share for my Sew Inspiring Rooms series.  A few days later I received her photos.  What a pleasant surprise it was to see such a beautiful room.  Thank you Stephanie for sharing your space with us!

Hi, I'm Stephanie, and I am so thrilled to share my studio with you. Thank you Amber! This is my favorite room in the house - the place where I spend more time than any other. Come on in! 


There are lots of things I love to do, including scrapbooking, paper crafting, reading and blogging. Quilting and sewing are my favorite, of course. With all my interests, I've tried to fit all my favorite things into one room with space for those people I love most to join me too.  I've taken over a bedroom that's not very big, so I've selected pieces of furniture that will hold lots of supplies, my stash of fabric and all the other fun stuff that goes with it.  My favorite parts of the studio include:

  • The quilted chair by the fun girls at Fibre and Fire
  • The bulletin board is made from a vintage crib spring
  • My desk was built using an old door attached to old table legs
  • Custom mannequin bust from Magda at Nostalgic Corner - some day I will find some beautiful Jewelry to display with her. 
  • Antique store shelves
  • Dress forms (It would appear that I love to make clothing and oh I wish that was true! This dress was my mom's prom dress from the 60's - I love vintage clothing.)
  • The closet full of supplies!

Can you ever have enough supplies?  Apparently not... I need an intervention.


I do like to be organized and use everything for inspiration, hence the reason there aren't any doors on the closet.  You can see my photo albums, scrapbooking supplies and bins of fabric. 
   

The black dresser is also fantastic. It was a damaged piece at an outlet and I think it's my favorite dresser in the house! I use it for my cutting table and layout station. I think this top drawer is supposed to be for jewelry, but it fits embellishments so perfectly. The drawers are great for organizing ribbon, fabric and kits for future projects.


It's a very busy room and filled to the brim with things I love.  It's very girly and since I'm outnumbered as the only girl in the house, others girls are always welcome! So come on over and visit - either in person or I would love to have you visit my blog at vintagetrailerlady.blogspot.com.

I love this room! It is so wonderful and inviting and so organized. However, I stopped in my tracks when you talked of "vintage" clothing from the 60's. I made my prom dress and attended in 1963. Guess that means I'm vintage, too. LOL

Stephanie said...

Thanks everyone! I love reading your comments. Thanks again Amber for posting about my room, its been so fun!

@ Donna - vintage is best! This dress may have been more 50's than 60's!

Thanks all!

Stephanie
