Fabric and pattern storage has always been an issue. I store a lot of fabric under beds and in closets. I take pictures of inside of the storage bins, so I know where to look when a project comes around. My two favorite pieces in my sewing space are my yellow ruffled glass pin dish and my Martha Washington sewing cabinet. The ruffle dish was given to me by a close friend and I love it. It is in a lot of Sew Spoiled pictures almost like a mascot.
The Mary Washington sewing cabinet holds everything you need to put your fingers on; scissors, measuring tape, buttons, zippers, etc.. It has 2 saddle bag compartments and 3 drawers. One thing I would change is adding shelving or more storage.
My girls and I love to make dolls, dresses and accessories, so poor Dad is driven out sometimes in a wave of fabric from the bonus room. He is a really good sport and he helps me with pictures. Even though I have a small space, it is mine and I love it!
