Two Net Bags... Complete!


Melanie and I had fun last week in our 2nd Net Bag Class. We were able to complete the small rainbow bag and start a new larger bag.




I just finished the larger bag and tied wood beads on the ends of the handles for the finishing touch.







I created it to put all of our hats and gloves in so they are all in one place.



The small one is perfect for a water bottle.


My next one will be even larger to carry groceries.


Emmitt asked for a hammock with cookies tied all over the place to relax in and have a snack.

What a great idea! He is always thinking!

Thank you everyone for your nice comments! You made my day!
Isn't that 2008 calendar neat, Rebecca? It is Leigh's wonderful collection of paintings that is available on her website, http://www.noisydogstudio.com/

A hammock with treat? Then you would never have to get out of it. LOL. Those nets are really cool!

Wow, this is great! Is this macrame? Emmitt's idea is a good one--my husband would agree as long as the cookies are chocolate chips. ;-D
