When you think of a sewing room, it sounds like such a tranquil place filled with lovely soft fabrics, right? A cozy space where creation thrives. But, there are plenty of sharp, pokey, and stringy things lurking around to give you more than the next best design. Here’s a super easy solution is both cheap and extremely efficient.
It’s easy to lose track of discarded items while sewing, and that makes carpeting the worst surface for a sewing room. Leslie, the Seasoned Homemaker, got herself in a bind. She carpeted her sewing room but soon learned that was not the best idea.
Searching for solutions, she found one from Thread Magazine that is exceptional. Leslie went to Home Depot and got the smallest paint roller for $2.00 and some hair rollers for maybe $5.00. With those two items, Leslie carpet headaches were over.
She puts the rollers on the brush and collects the thread under the sewing machine.
This quick hack prevents the logging of the vacuum from floor to floor. If only we can get something magnetic to locate those lost pins and needles, the option for carpet in a sewing room would not be so bad after all.
