hand made fabric basket

Pattern: Pink Penguins’ Fabric Basket.
Fabric: Various Tanya Whelan prints with Essex Yarn Dyed in Denim for the base.

Made for:My 13 year old neice E who will be getting her own room soon.

Time taken to:March 5th  – 6th 2013




I really like this little basket and can see myself making some more soon.


I also took delivery of a competition win of 3 fat quarters by Simply Solids:

Over Easter Justine had appealed on Twitter for photos of Easter weekend makes using Simply Solids fabrics  and I had sent her this photo:

I got them finished over Easter & blogged about them here. It was a lovely surprise when they came in the post Justine & I look forward to using them.

I’ve also transformed Oscar from a hairy beast:

and had a lot of left overs but unlike fabric these went in the bin



It seems that I’m forever playing catchup on here so I’ll try & post again soon…
