I Did It!

Oh my goodness you absolutely have to give me a huge WOOHOO!!!!!!!

These cute 'baskets' have been popping up in some of my favorite haunts and I've adored them. I'm bagophobic so I thought I couldn't make one. Well, color me wrong - look at my little cutie. Oh, if you look close there are a few boo-boos but what the heck - I learned from those boo-boos and now want to make another one or two (maybe three or four - LOL) Stephanie is seriously addicted and Nanette made some in a variety of sizes. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement, Ladies!

I hope you're having a good day. Come again and often!

In Friendship!


edit: made a second one for a friend. :-)

Second edit (because it slipped my mind) Here's the link to the awesome tutorial for the basket http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2008/05/tutorial-fabric-basket.html Enjoy!
