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!
