Little Quilted Fabric Basket filled with gardening items and a wall hanging for the Handmade Christmas Challenge
|In addition to the made items, I also have two potholders started and more fabric for an apron to add to the basket or perhaps make a Kitchen Basket gift.|
The two bits of Inspiration (or should say Pinspiration)
1. Fabric Basket Click here to go to Make it Do blog. Calli has a link to the tutorial she followed for her "lost socks basket".2. An ironing board cover tutorial. Thought I'd using this
piece of fabric that is sort of ugly.
|As the fabric laid on the ironing board, I remembered that the idea was to cut out the individual pictures and make pot holders, wallhangings, pillows, etc. and so the garden gift in a basket idea came to be.|
The Rest of the Story...
I found seed packets, the watering globes and frogs at Walmart. The frogs have a pretty mosaic back but need painted.
|Just needs some paint!|
|Different shades of green.|
I went to Tuesday Morning and found the gardening gloves, the flower pot flower decoration and lots of other cute things for future gift baskets. I was hoping to find a cute little Mary Engelbreit gardening book, but didn't find anything like that.
|Some outdoor pictures of the Potting Shed hanging.|
|I even have a potting shed!|
|Roses in bloom.|
|I'm so lucky to have some flowers blooming right outside my bedroom window!|
