It's Thursday afternoon & I have just gotten the "Andrew" ( my grandson) down for a nap, or maybe just an hour of "resting", since I still hear him chattering over the monitor. Anyway, I was looking through my magazines last night, Country Living in particular. In the most recent issue, the cover photo shows the most charming "fabric lined baskets"....I think they are just the prettiest!!!.... So now that's all I can think about!??....I want to find a couple similar baskets, some vintage looking fabric & sew up some "linings"....I know some of you have done this right?....Even though I'm a fairly good seamstress, I'll admit I do like a pattern to guide my way. I'm sure I can figure it out, but if you have any suggestions for me I would really appreciate it!...Well, I'm off to see what I have in the stacks of fabric in my sewing room! ( A room I will show you when it's a bit more picked up!) ...I'll keep you all posted on my progress! happy stitching!
This month's great cover of "Country Living".......I love everything in this picture...The "cabinet", the "chairs", the "blue pail" with the "sloppy flowers" & of course the "baskets" on top!
Isn't this just the cutest little "sewing basket?..or maybe I should say "sewing carton"??....Just shows what you can do with a few simple household items & a "sprinkling" of imagination".....Note: Instructions at http://www.countryliving.com/
