While I was in England we celebrated English Mother's Day. I wanted to make a Noodlehead Divided Basket for Mum and I thought she'd find one most useful in her bathroom.
Raiding my stash I pulled three fabrics by Lonni Rossi for Andover fabrics that are the perfect match for Mum's decor.
Bare Branches - Patterns 7530-MK & 7535-MKN (2014)
Facets - Pattern 7180-MK (2013)
This is the finished but very empty basket. I fussy cut the lining so the pattern's continuous on both sides of the basket divide.
It just wouldn't be right to give someone an empty basket so I trimmed some cream hand towels with the same fabrics I used for the basket.
And then I added some bath time goodies.
Now that's looking much better, though having to put the towels upside down (with the open folds visible) so you can see the trim is really upsetting me!!!
And here's a few more close up pics just because I love the details on these baskets.
For the handles I've used softer, smoother apron tape along with a layer of fusible fleece to add firmness rather than my usual cotton webbing.
Before I sew the body of the basket I always ensure that the side and bottom seams line up perfectly.
