I was motivated last night. After spending the ENTIRE day cutting out, ironing & sewing heart-shaped items I was SICK of sewing, cutting, glueing, ironing hearts!!! In fact, I decided I didn't like heart-shaped items anymore!!! I spied this fabric basket on another blog and knew I just had to make a couple. I did things a bit differently then the other one I saw, and am happy with the results.
The anticipation of my children going to school today, stirred up the creative juices quite late last night. I finished one a little before 2:00 AM and put the finishing touches on the second one early this morning. I used 17 different fabrics for each one. Makes for a quite colorful basket. I'm keeping the pink/brown lined one on my sewing machine to keep all my clippings/threads in as I'm sewing. The blue dotted lined one was shipped out this morning for a missionary lady in our conference. Hope she likes it!! :)
without flash you can see the colors better but it's quite fuzzy...
with the flash....it simply washes out all the pretty colors!!! :( One of these days, I'll learn how to take a decent picture! :)
Now to get motivated to CLEAN my house! Two days of being snow-stuck does WONDERS for the way a house seems to FALL APART!! :)
