I want to show you the best configuration for a small sewing area. If you have room for just a small setup, then you need to see this! In just 5×7 feet of area, I have a total of 2900 inches of workspace. Here’s the setup!
- Linnmon now called “Lagkapten” Table Top (link)
Large: 78 3/4 x 23 5/8″ (5 legs needed)
Medium: 55 1/8 x 23 5/8″ (4 legs needed)
- Adils Legs (link)
27 1/2″ height
- “Alex Drawer Unit on Casters” (link)
26 3/8″ wide x 26″ tall x 18 7/8″ deep
If you slide drawers in sideways, they are 3″ wider than the table is deep
See my video to make the bottom drawer deeper (link)
- Drawer Pulls (link)
I bought mine at Hobby Lobby, but Ikea does have them too
Keep in mind that you need very short screws to attach to the side of the Alex Drawers
- “Kuggis Inserts” (link)
I have another sewing table specifically for my Bernina machine with an Embroidery setup. But I really like this type of setup for efficiently cutting, ironing, and sewing my quilts. I have all my tools close at hand including electricity for my machine and iron.
Notice that there is a nice space between the Alex Drawers and the table. It’s about 2″ of space. This gives me space to keep my cutting and ironing mats on the drawers.
The cutting mat is 18×24″ and fits perfectly on top of the wide Alex Drawers.
