A Tisket, A Tasket, A Little Fabric Basket....



Certain quilty bloggers instituted "Finished by Friday" as a way, I think, to motivate the sluggish among us,to Get It Done Already, and give us the opportunity to brag! I got it done [last week, I've been up to other mischief this week!] and here I am, bragging about it.

Ali had this little basket on her blog last week and I fell in love. She had found a tutorial for it at Pink Penguin.....

When I went, just now, to have another peek, I found that Ali has made another, but bigger this time. So, if you're looking for something quick and cute to make, don't say I didn't provide any suggestions.

The OC, in his capacity as the Chief Wag around here, saw it lying on the table, half made, and commented on the "lovely hat" I was making for Judy, the wifely half of a couple [edited to accomodate my sister's word usage persnicketiness!] we visited last weekend........I suppose you could wear it on your head,[if you were a little daft] but I think it would look much nicer on a table, filled with chocolates, or acorns, or jellybeans. But, he must have his fun!

Molly said...

I had a feeling about that phrase! If anything will lure her out of the woodwork...............! Please note, dear friends, The Lady Rise, once again, due to a miracle, has the wherewithal to blog. If she can make snooty comments she can post, right? Go bug her about it......

Lovely bag. Or perhaps a nose cover? How is your nose?

Such a cute bag, & I love the colours.

Beautiful wonderful bag. I also have seen the tutorial but since I am at the stage of just trying to learn how to thread my sewing machine, I can tell you these kinds of projects are far away. A hat, is that not a typical man, how can anyone mistake that for a hat. Of course my sweet Adam calls me 'silk worm' because of all the knitting I do.
