What's on your workdesk Wednesday!


Well Wipso has been doing it for ages so I thought it was high time that I joined in.

This is my workdesk today.


Over the last few months I have been collecting a stash of woollen clothes and have felted them ready to "upcycle".

Some were from my own wardrobe and some from charity shops. My daughter even wrapped three lovely ones as a pressie from Santa!

I have been checking out lots of websites and blogs to see what other folks do to recycle woollen items and there are some super ideas out there.

So they are stacked on my table along with my embellisher, which will be used to beautify my pieces before I make any items with them.
I made a little bag with the sleeve of one jumper before Christmas and you can see it here
Any ideas or suggestions welcome!

My only suggestion is..... do something with them before buying more :-)
Love the links you sent me yesterday. I'm sure we can make beautiful items using similar ideas. Just need to find buyers for it all :-)

To say that this is impressive is an understatement! Your little bag is fab and your work space a little too tidy for me!

Yes we know you should do something with them before buying more, but will you - if you're like the rest of us, maybe not hehe.

The little bag looks lovely, one of the ladies at from my sons old school had a craft table recently and she had made a fab mobile phone sleeve with a jumper sleeve she had added buttons as embies and it looked great. Hugs Pam
