A flickr friend made one of these and posted it on her photostream, along with a link to the pattern, and I was inspired. What better way to store odds and ends? It's so quick and easy, and so cute! I'm planning to make more of differing sizes that can nest into each other when empty.
The outer fabric is a Japanese cotton canvas that I bought on Etsy. The lining is from my local fabric shop, and I will update this post with the designer once I check the selvage. I used a heavy interfacing so the basket would keep its shape better. Most important - I ironed the edges like crazy to get the square shape! Without ironing it stays sort of round.
I filled it with some of my favourite yet-to-use craft supplies - cute wooden buttons, vintage trims, wooden thread spools, and pretty beads. For now it sits on my bed side table to inspire me each morning. The more I see my supplies, the more ideas I have for crafts, and that is always a good thing.

Last time I made them a fleece tube, Rory thought it was just for her. This time I made two! They both tend to favour the one on the left (maybe because it's infront of a hanging chew toy), but I do often find one girl in each tube.
This project is actually very simple to make. If you'd like to know how, leave your e-mail in the comments and I'll send you instructions.
Next - a matching hammock.

This year I am starting again! My close friend Janet is doing it too, so the plan is to keep each other motivated if we fall behind. I'm actually having a great time looking at all of her photos, and I look forward to them each day. If you decide to join in, please leave a link where I can follow you. I don't plan on sharing the photos here daily, but I might do a weekly post with all the photos from that week. For now, I am going to share my first two photos.
