For my first book 'Craft,Show & Sell' by Search Press, I made a craft desk using bookshelves, then we promptly moved house so I didn't get a chance to use it. But since we moved house it has had a lot of use and is where I do most of my photography as it is next to the window. I loved how it looked in my old craft room, the open shelves filled with craft supplies but with the dresser now filled with craft supplies I felt it a little overwhelming. I also felt I wasn't maximising the space the shelves could store so I decided to make some custom fabric drawers inspired by my storage cubes from my second book 'Torie Jayne's Stylish Home Sewing' by Cico Books. I am loving my new drawers and have gained so much extra storage...
The finished drawers are 30cm long, 13.5 cm tall and 13.5cm wide, so that they sit perfectly in my craft storage desk. I have attached handles to either end so I can pull the draw in and out from both sides of my craft desk.
