FABRIC BASKET - SOMETHING FOR ME

I am either making things for other people or doing quite a bit of sewing for Aussie Hero Quilts and
Laundry bags, I just completed 2 blocks yesterday morning for Aussie Hero Quilts for some mystery quilt tops. I have wanted a thread and scrap basket for my craft table for some time now but just haven’t found the time to make one, so yesterday after completing the blocks I was working on I had a little spare time so I decided to make myself a fabric basket using a Tutorial from Jenny of Elefantz from July this year using fabric I purchased from Jenny recently…  I wanted to complete the basket yesterday so I machine stitched the quilting instead of by hand as in Jenny's tutorial. I am really happy with the end result and am thinking about making some for Christmas pressies….. it was so quick and easy. I did however change the size a little, using measurements of 10” x 14” instead of the 8” x 14” in the  tutorial….


These are the two blocks I completed yesterday which will go with other blocks various people send in, they are for two different mystery quilt tops.



Cheers
Kaylee
