Studio Tour: Cut to Pieces

 Today we are touring the studio of  Moda Bake Shop Chef Angela Pingel of the blog Cut To Pieces.



{Have you joined our Show Off Your Stash Link Party yet? If not, you can link up here.}

Let's take a peek inside this lovely sewing space!

Angela tells us that "Having a sewing room is an indulgence that has become a necessity in my life.  With a curious two year old, keeping sharp objects out of reach has been a daily task since she was born. But there is no denying that safety ALMOST takes a backseat to beauty in my sewing room.  I need a space that feels like an escape...a retreat...an inspiration."




How does Angela keep her space so tidy? She used comic book backer boards to organize most of her yardage to look like mini bolts of fabric. She also keeps her thread organized by color.  A lot of her fabric storage space comes from a built-in bookcase, which she convinced her husband "needed to be this particular shade of blue." I think it was a lovely choice!

Thanks for letting us into your space, Angela! You can see more of her studio {here}.

Getting Organized,

Well, blue is my favorite color, so this really is sew beautiful to me! Oh, to have that kind of stash I would be in heaven - it screams "come and play"!

I love how you store on the mini-bolts, never thought of using some kind of cardboard cut to the same size for this purpose.
