I'm a Basket Case!

My little granddaughter Evie is 6 months old now
and my daughter bought a group of baskets on Craigslist
months ago for Evies' room.
She asked me to make liners for them
and these baskets (and 2 more)
have lived in my sewing room since then.
Now that the holidays are over
I am finally getting these done for her.
I used scraps of fabric left over from Evie's crib bedding.
Isn't it adorable?
It's Sugar & Spice by Riley Blake.

It feels good to finally get these done
and be able to send them on to their new home
before Evie turns 16!
(2 down and 2 more to go :)

And speaking of getting things done,
how are you guys doing with the After Christmas Sew Along?
Have you been checking out the
There is some amazing talent out there
and so many inspiring projects.
And don't forget to take advantage of all the great discounts
available during the sew along from these great etsy shops!
They have added some new items that you don't want to miss!
Who is going to win that awesome fabric bundle from Bratpacks fabrics?
Remember, anyone can join the fun at any time
and it's not a talent competition,
 the winners are chosen at random!
Will it be you??????


  1. great baskets! I love the colors! your work is so beautiful and inspires me to go out of my comfort zone! thanks!

  2. I've got a few baskets that need liners, I will pop them in the mail today, lol

  3. great job on the baskets, is it as easy as it looks lol! I'm finishing up my project for week 2 today, already got week 3 planned out well at least for now I do lol

  4. Great project! I've so many baskets, now I know what to do!

  5. Very nice :-)!! I would like to make some for new grand baby Jackson. Let me find out the color scheme and maybe you would like to give a personal lesson or maybe you are feeling the need to publish a new tutorial. Just saying...:-)

  6. I really like your basket liners. I just might have to make one to line my project basket. What's one more to my list of things to do.
    I am sure your daughter will love them.

  7. The baskets look fabulous! You always do a great job combining fabrics.
    I wish I could say I've been really productive with the sew along. The truth is I'm squeezing in one small project and wishing I had more time to get more done. But I did get to make a little bird for myself this week.
