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!
