Somehow I haven't felt like sewing much lately. I decided not to stress too much about it as I have plenty to do around the house to keep myself busy :) and I knew the need and desire to sew would show up sooner rather than later.
Which is exactly what happened. As soon as I saw Anna's (noodlehead) new vignette basket I knew I needed to make one right away.
This is a second basket I made using Anna's pattern (included in her beautiful book Handmade Style) and I absolutely love how it turned out. Plus, you know what? The fabric I used for the front and back of the basket is my own block printed fabric which made using it that much more fun.
I used some of my very favorite text linen from my stash for the sides and I think the fabrics play together quite nicely. And, to save myself some work, I used leather instead of making fabric tabs to attach my webbing handles.
I worried a bit about stitching through leather at first, but my machine proved to be a great trooper and sewed without any hiccups. She is definitely the best, that lovely Juki machine of mine :).
Wishing you all a super lovely day. Svetlana
