After sharing my sewing room tour and the complete source list, I realized that a whole lot of the room is straight from ikea! I compiled this list of my favorite things that are perfect for sewing spaces of all sizes! These are my tried and true recommendations!
10 IKEA products for your sewing space
1. Linmon Tables with Adils Legs. At $20 a pop, these are nice study tables for sewing. An upgrade from the card table I used to sew on. I also love the space underneath!
2. Raskog Utility Cart. This caddy on wheels is super cute, comes in 3 color options, and holds in-progress sewing projects or fabric nicely.
3. Stave Mirror. This large mirror is my favorite for seeing how things fit and look while I’m sewing garments.
4. Bumerang Pant/Skirt Hangers. These hangers have two clips, which is so nice for hanging printed patterns!
5. Iron holder. This is an amazing product! It holds an iron and the cord, keeping it out of reach for young kids. Plus, it’s always right there when you need it!
6. Magnetic Knife Strips: There are so many metal things when it comes to sewing. I have these strips right next to my machine to hold nippers, needles, pins, machine feet, etc right next to my machine.
7. and Spice Holders: The spice holders hold things like buttons, wonderclips and others that don’t stick to the magnets.
8. Alex Unit: This is a versatile piece. In the sewing room, I use it to hold flat patterns. The drawers are really big and flat, so it’s great for that.
9. Algot System: If you’re sewing clothes, a wardrobe in or near your space will change everything! It’s motivating to hang up all your finished makes and also keeps things tidy and wrinkle-free. I have a whole wall of this, but even one shelf and hanging rack would be great!
10. Sortera Plastic Recycle Bins for scraps: I have a problem keeping scraps, but these things are SO nice! I just throw them all in and go through it when I need to.
What are your favorite IKEA products for your sewing space?
This is exactly the post I need…some good inspo for my sewing space. Currently I’m working out of half of a closet and part of my dining room table. We’re in an apartment so space is limited. Hoping I can take advantage of one of these carts or tables and make a little space for myself! Thanks! Xo Chelsea play. wash. rinse. repeat.
thank you for this list. I love to use Samla Boxes – they are clear and I use them for scraps, fabric and batting in all kind of sizes. So you can see the colors and everything without opening the boxes. For me, who isn’t very good in tiding up, it’s a good motivation. :)
Thanks for this! On the table how did you get it for $20. The site is showing $40. Does it go on sale?
I recently bought the Linmon Table. It’s perfect!

I use the Raskog Utility Cart as my mini vintage-looking bar, but it’d definitely be perfect for sewing! The wheels would come in handy.

What great suggestions! I have a spice rack that still needs to be put together for my thread.
I just got a Linmon table (with Olov adjustable feet because I’m not tall at all) and it’s the best table/desktop ever for my sewing needs :) I think I’m gonna get the iron holder next !
I would have got the utility cart but there’s a hopping 20$ difference in the price in my country :O
Isn’t it nice to choose simple practical things to make sewing more pleasing ?
My “Billy” bookcases hold my craft and sewing library and “Gnedby”, which are meant for CDs, works perfect for my fabrics! Nothing slips or slides behind and I can grab the matching fabrics in an instant. I also use 2 “Sonne” drawer units, they are 4 sided, to store my threads. The table over the “Sonne” elements, meant for use over a bed, serves for my sewing machines. Of course I use the spiceholders too!
Thanks for this useful list, I hope you get a commission on sales.
Hi, the iron holders is only great if you got an iron that fits into it – mine does not so I gave it away…
Hi! I’ve just made a sewing desk from two Kallax 2×2 units, with fabric baskets for supplies, and a Linnmon 150cm x 75cm table top. Works well! Jen

Love the iron holder. I don’t have a dedicated sewing/craft space, but when I build, I hope to fix that. :)
Thanks for all the great ideas! I love Ikea and can never get enough of it. I love that white chair with the wooden legs in the fourth photo above. Where did you find it?
