18 March 1957 “Child’s Closet and Room For Sewing”

Just a quick post today showing two ideas for storage from one of my vintage homemaking manuals.

childscloset Here we see a great layout for a child’s closet. This would be wonderful for an adult as well, or even for the laundry room.

sewingroom Here we see all one really needs for sewing neatly packed into a closet. When put away the sewing machine and bench look simply like furniture. There is even room for the dressmakers dummy. I also like the drawers in graduated sizes for patterns, notions and fabric.

How many of us need more organization in our life? I know I do. I have done much more than I have before 1955, but it is always an ongoing project. Any good organizing tips?
