I think this little basket has been such a popular project because 1) it’s easy! 2) it’s a perfect scrap-buster, and 3) the finished project is something you can definitely use. I mean, who doesn’t want a little more organization in their home? The free sewing tutorial is on Ayumi’s Pink Penquin blog. I love her organizer baskets too!
Here’s the basket I made. And here’s my disclaimer… I messed up big time and I totally love it anyway. First I must tell you that I decided to make it bigger so my measurements were not exactly what Ayumi tells you to use. Then I somehow got mixed up when I was sewing the sides together so what should have been the bottom of my basket ended up wrapping from one side around to the other. And the patchwork part ended up on the ends of the basket mostly. Can anyone really tell? Did it make it any less ‘basketier’ or any less cute? Certainly not.

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!

I’m so excited about this new book that I get to review. Virginia Lindsay of Gingercake has given away all her secrets… this is seriously the most practical and beautiful book about running a sewing related business that I’ve ever seen. Sewing to Sell is an instant classic.
