Basket case


I finished making a basket this morning, following the tutorial on Pink Penguin's blog. I'm planning on filling it with all the little bits and pieces that I will make during February for Thing-a-day 2010. I have lots of things on my list so I might need to make another one, and if I do, I'll make it a bit bigger.

I used some linen that I bought the other day for the bottom of the basket although the colourful patches kind of overshadow it. The linen is beautiful and makes a nice contrast to my other fabrics. I am learning to appreciate neutrals mixed with bright colours thanks to all the inspiring Japanese zakka items I've been looking at lately.

Off to forage for lunch and then make a start on my next fabric project, which I can't tell about just yet, because the person I'm making it for knows about this blog :-)
