What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday :: Little Owl Canvas

On my list of things to make this week is a drawstring bag I've been asked to make for a friends little girl.

So this morning out came the material ready for measuring, cutting and sewing etc. Unfortunately - as so often happens to me - whilst working on one project, another idea pops into mind and I just HAVE to make it there and then....

You see the last time I used these materials, I made this Little Owl for my niece. I loved this project as I was really pleased with the design which I then went on to translate into a paper collage picture.

So, I had the bright idea that the design would make a cute fabric collage on canvas. Away went the bag pattern and out came the canvas and paint and this is what my workdesk looks like this morning:
As you can see I've almost cut out all the pieces, I now just need to sew it all together and glue it to the canvas. I think it will look really cute though when it's finished - what do you think?

Do you get easily distracted with new ideas?

Pop across to Julia's blog to take a peek at a whole world of creative workdesks.

Have fun. xx

PS - if you are kind enough to leave me a comment, please don't be offended if I don't comment in return. I do always check out your WOYWW post, but for some strange reason I am not always able to save any comments I write.
