Hi there, hope you all had a good weekend, mine was good. They always go so fast don't they. I was playing in my sewing room on Saturday afternoon, going through my cupboards looking for some fabric. They were in such a mess, I decided to tidy up a little and to keep things organised I got to work and made some of these hour baskets, they are fantastic. They really do only take an hour to make.
I first saw these on Instagram and everyone was making them. You can find a free tutorial on craftsy. Just type in Hour Basket.
I have made 4 already and yesterday I cut out a couple more, they are great for using the odd fat quarter you have just sitting in your cupboard. All you need are 2 fat quarters, one for the outer, one for the lining and some scraps for the handles. I used batting inside my baskets instead of the iron on pellon like suggested in the pattern. I felt the batting made them a bit sturdier.
They really do hold alot. Now isn't that organised.
During the week I got some new English paper piecing patterns, OOOOH I love these and I can't wait to get started.
