Sewing Table

When I sew I usually lay out everything on the floor. It is pretty miserable kneeling and cutting. I do have a large table, but it is not wide enough. I did get a good idea how to make it larger though. My table is 3 x 6 feet.

I can bolt the 4 x 8 sheet of coroplast to the table. I will have to make sure the edges aren't sharp, but it should work. I should be able to get the bolts flush with the flat surface. The 10 mm coroplast is very strong. And Harbor Sales has free shipping if you're on one of their truck routes (yay!).

$35.06 for a sheet. Not pretty, but it should work well.

Potential problems:

Creepy things growing in flutes. Can be prevented if I seal off the edges well. Poly vinyl carbonate vapors? Psh. Doesn't ever reach above 60 degrees in my sewing area.

1950s Fabrics

These two go so well together:

The turquoise is a near match.

*Breathes in*

*Breathes out*

I think I need a vacation. Somewhere nice and warm, with water. And kittens. Kittens are nice too.
