Thank You to Moogsmum

Posted by Picasa
Look what I made today! I wanted something to hold my pens, pastels, watercolour crayons and stuff so that I can work in my sketchbook more in the evenings and saw some bags that Lesley had made. She referred me back to a tutorial she had done some time ago and voila! My prototype basket! Excuse the wobbly top - it's my deliberate error, I should have top-stitched but I forgot. This went together surprisingly easy, the longest part was cutting everything out. I shall definitely be making some more to hold my magazines in the hope that it will make my lounge look a bit more stylish - they've got to look better than piles of magazines everywhere! (The fabric is upholstery or curtain fabric that I bought at the local Scrapstore).
Thank you Lesley both for the inspiration and the tutorial. If I can make these anyone can!

I can't believe I'm so behind on reading blogs!
I love your basket and I'm glad the tutorial worked :-)
