Pretty Baskets

In between making quilts I like to make little things, these baskets were such fun to make and so easy.

I had these left over fat quarters of Delilah fabric as the print on them was a bit big to put in a quilt so I saved them for a future project not having a clue at the time what I would use them for.




Then when I wanted to make the baskets I knew the fabric would be perfect.




This pink basket is so pretty. Having 4 males in our house I like a bit of pink just for me.


















The blue basket is the biggest and I have all my threads stored in there for my stitchery project. (more on that later)

I plan to get a bit of sewing done today as well as baking for the boys lunch boxes, what do you have planned for today? I hope it involves some sewing to. Have a great day.

I love the baskets Leanne, a great addition to your sewing room. I will file that idea away on my long term to do list. I have got to drag the vacuum cleaner out for a bit today and then continue sewing on my current to do list!

Beautiful baskets & so useful too. That Deliiah fabric is gorgeous & your right, too pretty a print to cut up small. Have you succumb to any Vintage Modern yet? I'm thinking it's just as lovely as Ruby - maybe even better! Tracee xx
