1 Hour Baskets everywhere!

Have you seen these cute little baskets that everyone is making?  They are adorable and so quick and easy to make.  If I had an available shelf, I would fill it with these little baskets, one for every WIP. 

The pattern by Hearts and Bees is available for free on Craftsy!

For the first one, I followed the directions exactly and it took just under an hour.  Isn't it adorable?  I am a sucker for gingham.

For the second one, I decided to add a decorative band at the top and some pretty decorative stitching.  I just measured the finished exterior panel to get the new measurements for the  padding and lining.  This one took just over an hour.

And for my  third basket I used the last few scraps from my charm pack of comma (left over from my wedge quilt) to make a 6x7 inch panel. Then I added some yarn dyed linen to finish making the exterior panel.  Again, once it was done I just measured my finished panel to see what size to cut the interior lining and padding.  Easy Peasy.

I am so pleased with these baskets.  I would make a dozen more if I only had the room to put them on display.

My quilty friends and I got together this weekend to sew, talk and laugh, and they joined in on the basket fun as well.  Here they are with their creations.

I just love my quilty friends!

Thanks for stopping by!
