What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday?

Well here we are again, another week, another desk shot!

I’ve been playing around with the ipod case from Mollie Makes and made a few changes to the design. The cream piece of felt in the kit wasn’t big enough to go right across the width of the case, so I picked a blue from my stash to use instead.

I decided to scallop the strip and cut the circle to match, using a Nestie die. I cut the wing as an extra piece, instead of a cut out and made the bird face the other way. I’m quite pleased with the way it looks, so now just to sew it all together.

If you fancy a peek at lots of other lovely desks then head on over to Julia’s place to find them all. I remembered the link this week!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who found it wouldn't fit! I love your fresh blue alternative.

Cute. I was interested in that mag too but not seen it on the stands. Gosh I hate badly written instructions (although to my shame I am sometimes the culprit!) but I'm still tempted. Maybe a flick thru at the newstand ....

Have a good one.

I like the little bird, very cute.

I keep seeing all sorts of variations on the original kit. Lots of people are customising their little case, to suit their own wants.
Yours is going to be very pretty!

This is really pretty - the blue, grey and white/cream is a lovely colour combination ...

Everyone's raving about this magazine! I shall have to look out for it in town on Tuesday :) Especially if you get that cute kit with it - I shall follow your version rather than the pattern though, yours is nicer xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh that's really cute! Like it with the blue. Haven't seen this mag yet. Your desk looks very calm and white. I see you don't believe in buying small tubs of gesso!

Nicky said...
