My 18 year old daughter would come home and scatter the small things from her pockets and handbag all over the house, and then ask "Have you seen my crap?". This would result in confused looks and us searching the house for her stuff. So to help her out I decided to make a little fabric basket out of the scraps. I must say its been a great idea. No more questions, no searching for hours for little things, now they all reside in the little basket near the front door.
This is the back side of the basket.
After the success of the "crap" basket, I decided to make a bigger one. This time I used fabrics from my stash, as these use quite a bit of fabric. I used the pattern from Sew Pretty Homestyle.
Strips all sewn and ready to go ( I am obsessed with strips at the moment)
I liked the inside better than the outside. So the binding I used to cover the seems shows, there is no accounting for taste some days...
This is what it looks like with the top un-folded.
So there ends my sewing adventures using Other Peoples Scraps. I'm sure I will make some more things from out of the scrap box soon.
I have been looking at all the clutter in the house lately and am thinking some nice big fabric baskets would be good to store things such as toys and other thingies. So I will look into making some.
And finally after a very cold winter this year, it is really good to see that Spring is finally on its way. The hope for warmer weather with all the blossoms sprouting and flowers budding is such a wonderful thing.
Happy Crafting and Reading
