Hi everyone!  Thanks for stopping by!  The next projects I tackled were some cute little fabric baskets.  I wanted a couple of sort of "hostess" gifts and thought these would be perfect.  I used one of my favorite tutorials - it's by Ayumi at Pink Penguin, click here for the link.

For the first basket, I wanted a sort of colonial America feel to it.  Here are the pieces I started with:


I love these fabrics - I made a table runner with them for a friend several years ago that I just loved!

It was together before I knew it:


I have a cute, coordinating blue, but she's more of a green person, so I went with that for the lining and a few of the patchwork pieces.  I'm very happy with how it came out!

For the next one, I wanted something sort of rustic. I chose denim and homespun, and decided not to do the patchwork along the top.


Here's a look inside:


I'm hoping the person it is intended for will appreciate the recycled aspect of the denim parts!

I think they're both cute and hopefully the recipients will think so, too!

Thanks for reading!


  1. I recognize those colonial American autumn fabrics. I adore my table runner and think of you every time I see it. It's so very special to me. Thank you, thank you again and again, Karen♥

  2. What a couple of cute bags. I'm sure the recipients will love them.
