Well I am redoing my room. I want a fashion theme. I am really into fashion, I design,I sew purses and clothes. ( some clothes) Anyways, my room is 10 by 11, I have a twin bed, I have enough room for all my junk and a lot of space in the middle. I also have a ceiling fan. I need a way to incoporate everything and I want to seperate my room a little, cause I want a small crafts corner or something like that, that would hold my sewing stuff fabrics crafting stuff. So any ideas?

[1] Since you say there's a lot of space in the middle, you might consider creating a 'zone' or two by repositioning a few pieces of furniture so that not all of it is lined up flat against a wall?

[2] Perhaps consider making one or two hinged, standing screens to visually section-off a zone or two?

Just about anything flat & reasonably sturdy, whether old or new, could be made into a screen by hinging the widths together :
window shutters, doors, plastic or wood lattice, etc etc.
Besides decorating a screen any way you like, it can be useful too, if you want or need them to be (e.g., hang or pin or tack things on it).

Depending on how high the ceiling is, though... in an 11x12 room -- if that's in feet..? -- you might not want completely-solid screens, &/or you might want them around 'see-over' height, not much higher than that.

Maybe something like butterick 4677, a storage ottoman, would be a good option?  You could put a decent amount of crafting stuff in it, and it would work as a place to sit while you craft.

The thought that I had when I first started reading was that it would be really cool to do something like paper dolls either on the walls or on a dividing screen. When I say paper dolls, I actually mean like a fashion croquois (model) where you could try your design ideas by making smaller versions and "try them on"  the models on your walls.

Wow, that was a really horrible explanation.  The original idea came from two books that I've been considering buying for my 12 year old daughter:  Paper Fashions (by Klutz), and Casual Chic by Jayne Miller.  They both come with stencils for making clothing designs without drafting skill, and I thought it'd be a fun idea to do something similar to the stencils on your walls, but ideally it would be better if they were bigger than the ones in either book.

Hope this helps!


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

Flip a bookcase sideways, add wheels and a lid (with wood) and youve got a nice tabe with storage.
