  7. I love the clothing hanging around the room, so fun! And I also like how the computer and sewing machine are right next to each. That would make following tutorials so easy!

  19. I just love these little peeks into people’s work spaces. Everyone makes the best use of the space they have and it’s inspiring to see work/designs hanging here in Rae’s sewing room.
