Hello everyone, hope you are all well and happy. I am fine, had a very busy week with virtually no crafting at all so am making up for it this weekend.
Bizarrely enough it is snowing while I type this – I am just glad that I got home from my Simply Solids class before it started so now I am snuggled up under my fleece on the sofa with my lovely new fabric basket.
The title of my post comes from a nursery rhyme that I used to sing and play the accompanying game to when I was younger, no idea what a tisket or a tasket is but it makes a nice rhyme for basket.
The class was based around pattern for the one – hour basket which is a free pattern on Craftsy that you can find here .
There were just 3 of us in the class today and we had a lovely time, although it is called a one-hour basket it took nearly 3 hours for this first attempt.
The fabric is an ombre from V and Co for the outside and last of my Moda sewing notions fabric from a couple of years ago for the lining.
I have previously made some sewing gifts for my sister -in -law from this fabric so have decided that I will give this one to her for an Xmas gift as basket for all her sewing, am planning to add an embroidered label to the outside.
I am hopefully going to make another one tomorrow as I have bought more supplies of the foam used for the lining so will see if I can make the next one a bit faster.
There are loads of versions of it for inspiration, I found these pretty ones on Craftsy and here and would like to do some patchwork or embroidered ones.
The other thing that is keeping me busy is sewing new braid on one of my daughter’s medieval dresses, that is lovely soothing stitching for evenings when I am too tired to concentrate.
Hope that you have a very nice week ahead, I am really looking forward to our first re-enactment event of the year next week, back to fun in fields 🙂
Thanks for visiting and see you soon.
