Iâ€™m subscribed to this blog called Pink Penguin (itâ€™s so cute!) and I saw this tutorial a while ago for making a fabric basket. Browsing through my internet bookmarks I saw it again and thought, why not? I have time and the materials.
So there are some serious flaws in it; liningâ€™s too shallow, the squares donâ€™t match up, I made a huge mistake sewing the lining onto the outer piece so itâ€™s got this funny ring all around it (which I donâ€™t like at all) but itâ€™s been a learning experience. I also had to wrestle with my sewing machine to make it stop eating all the thread (still havenâ€™t figured out why it did that, but I got it to work eventually) which was a complete pain in the rear.
Anyway, itâ€™s finished. I think Iâ€™m going to use it to collect all the scrap bits of fabric and loose threads I cut off my pieces in the future.
