With the help of my honey...because I was ready to chuck this thing out the window and he helped as usual with the instructions...I made this with an old pair of jeans that were torn and just hanging around...some scrap material and batting / ribbon...and I LOVE it love love it love it!! Was a little tricky doing the circle bottom when I am not a pro seamstress...only been sewing for less than a year and working on my first real pattern bag currently...this was not that difficult really once I got the hang of the circles. Here is a link to the instructions if any of you are interested in giving this a shot...I am using this one for patterns and material I am using right now. I have a big treasure like box I keep all of my material in but it gets old pulling it out and making a mess with it all to get to it as I am so limited in creating space...these little baskets can be made in all sorts of sizes and their just darling!
I have a friend who is pregnant, a couple actually and I can see these as making cute baskets to fill with baby shower gifts, Christmas or birthday baskets...anything really. This is the larger one of the three sizes, and I really want to make the smaller ones for pens and colored pencils and such...
Having a good relaxing weekend so far. To my moms for dinner tomorrow evening but looking forward to sleeping in a bit...doing some housework and working on some more projects before that.
Good night pals..sleep good...zzz
