I wanted to show these cute baskets I made yesterday.
I found this pattern on my shelf and figured I'd try to make them.
the black one I made first, it was supposed to have handles but they got very bulky with this double batting inside, so I omitted them, then the bottom inside you can see the batting from the bottom circle even though I zig zagged around, so I made the purple one and for the lining, ironed up 1/4" or so and then after the bottom was added I stitched the lining to it with a straight stitch, not totally even since I did it from the inside, but I think next time I'll stitch from the outside, I don't know, maybe just leave it like the black one, that sure was easy! the handles on the purple I omitted the batting.
Gave these to my kids, my daughter thought it was a hat!! ha ha
I also wanted to show the progress of my little sampler class I have at my house.
2 of the 3 brought the blocks last night.
9 blocks made so far, it's fun to see them all different.
I like this blue and green matching set.
I also like this christmas holiday set
fun to see how different they each look.
