Where I Sew – April Rhodes

on Jul 31, 2014 in Where I Sew | 67 comments

I am a fabric and pattern designer with a passion for modern simplicity mixed with eclectic and vintage style.  I love to sew clothes for myself, though I greatly enjoy all types of sewing, patchwork/quilting, home decor, embroidery and so on. My crafting adventures bring me a sense of fulfillment hat nothing else does. I have two young daughters and my house is generally messy because making things in more fun than cleaning.

  9. I love those vintage suitcases– so clever! I couldn’t agree more that making is way more fun than cleaning (and my house shows that!). Thanks for sharing your space!

  14. Hey, I think that might be the same ikea desk I have in my computer room…even if its not, I never would’ve thought to repurpose this for sewing, and now my mind is churning with furniture moving ideas…

    Her room is so pretty, it’s making me wish I had more wall space, for sure!

  22. How true– being creative is far more fun than cleaning up! And there is only so much time in a day. Thanks for reminding us to keep our priorities straight.

  28. Love it! I need to hang more things on my walls; it’s pretty bare in my sewing room other than the fabric explosion.
