Woyww #138

Here we are again.  WEDNESDSAY.  Time to play along with "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday", hosted by Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com.
So today I abandoned my normal workdesk in favour of spreading my work around the house.
 This is the kitchen table.  I wanted to make a card but be downstairs to make dinner as well!
This is the Dining Table with Small's Toiletries Bag I am 'embellishing'

.....and this is the other end of the dining table......
I am attempting to make a bag with the handles I won from The Felt Fairy

Two different ideas.  
1.  Crochet side with a material inside - not sure if the crochet is too soft.  Will it hold up as a bag?
2.  The other one is two tea-towels sewn together.  The problem with this one is that I don't yet have a    sewing machine and I'm not sure if the material is too thick to hand sew!
My normal desk is just a dumping ground at the moment, so you don't want to see that.

 Why not pop along and have a look at the real talent from all around the world who take part in WOYWW.

Love the bag ideas. I'm sure you will have a fab bag when finished. Have fun,

Both are very good ideas. The tea towel one looks the best though for sturdiness. Actually a very good idea. I'm still waffling about an idea...saw this http://pursepatterns.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=108&products_id=943

I think the top bit is cut as a half circle so when you gather it up at the top the sides stay straight? I'll just have to experiment:)

Loving the look of the card your making - are you stamping on it?
I think the tea-towels would work better for your bag, but I guess you'll have to machine sew them.

Have a creative day.

Morning, morning. I linked you up btw, thought you'd be a bit busy getting your household ready for the day at 7:30am! You've done well with those alphabet stamps, I can never get them to line up. Love the bags, think the tea towel one is my favourite, sounds like a good excuse to get a sewing machine too! I absolutely adore Baaarnaby from the previous post!

I love the look of the crochet bag. What have you got to lose, give it a go. If it isn't sturdy enough, you can always re-use the handles. The colours are gorgeous, love your button pic too :)

Lots of different projects in different places. I would have that if I had multiple work surfaces for sure. Thanks for the share at your projects. I like the idea of a crocheted bag but I think the tea towels would work out better.

Karen said...

Love the bags, they are looking really good :) Gorgeous coloured buttons that I spy on your table too!

Have a great WOYWW, Luv Karen #80

Angie said...

I think the crochet one will work if you are lining the inside to prevent stretch ...forget it if you have cats though.lol

MaggieC said...

That crocheted bag looks great, and I am sure it will be well-loved. Thank you for your visit and encouraging comments. Have a good week. xx Maggie #90

Nicky said...

Both bag ideas are great but the crochet one will work if lined as it stop it from stretching - thanks for sharing all you spaces - but I would have liked to see the messy one :)
