basket case

Another basket made. If you follow me on instagram you might have seen the state of my sewing area, I seriously need organisation! 


Again I used Ayumi's brilliant tutorial and enlarged the measurements using 2.5" squares. I chose some of my favourite fabrics and I love the selvedge running along one side - sure it's upside down but a lot of my life is ;)


A place to store my thread, those fruits will make me smile every time I reach inside and it's a check off my FAL list.



Have a great weekend! I'm planning to sew as much as possible after just looking at my FAL list. Feeling the need for finishes!


Linking up:
at Quilt Matters this week

and finish it up friday at crazy mom quilts
