Hello! Welcome back! Although I miss the holidays, I'm over the chaos. I think I'm ready for Spring now how about you? Well, if not, Flower Show Spring by Liberty Fabrics for Riley Blake Designs will make you want the season to arrive already!
I'm currently giving my sewing room a refresh and I've been on the hunt for vintage, timeless pieces, specifically in storage form. I decided to add some handmades to my refresh of the room as well. I wanted to make something pretty that could hold my vintage linens and be passed down as an heirloom eventually, so I created a handmade, weaved basket, using Flower Show Spring. I hand cut and sewed each fabric strip and created a weaved pattern to resemble a basket. I added a vintage battenburg lace doily to the side to give it a vintage look. I added structure to the body by incorporating a layer for pellon foam as well as plastic cross stitch canvas to make it really sturdy. I added leather handles to the side secured with rivets. I really love this make and hope to make more storage vessels for my sewing room.
Here is what I made:
