On a whim I've decided to blog a bit about a sewing project I finished today! It was super quick and fairly simple. I'm a pretty experienced sewer, so keep that in mind. I've been snowed in for the last couple days and finally really sitting down to actually make something!
The pattern is the Divided Basket Pattern by Noodlehead. This is maybe the 4th Noodlehead pattern I have? Anyway, I have many of them and I love them all! The instructions are always very well written and easy to follow. There are great pictures and she also has good information about construction on her blog. I think I've even emailed (probably through a comment on her blog) a question and gotten an answer back! Check it out below.....
The fabric is by Robert Kaufman and it's called Fly Away. I won it a few years ago from Southern Fabric. This project seemed like a great time to actually cut into this little 1/2 yard stack! For being such a good size this divided basket really didn't take up that much fabric. I cut out the pattern, fabric, interfacing, fusible fleece and assembled this little basket in about 2.5 hours (approx. I am measuring time as in 10 mins of This American Life podcast, the latest Men In Blazers podcast and about 30 mins of Pop Culture Happy Hour for the sewing part).
If you're in the market for a pattern like this I highly recommend this one! It'd be great for filling with awesome items as part of a gift or for keeping patterns in - which is what I am going to do!
