My girls have the best dance teacher. I adore her!
We were thrilled when she got married 2 years ago and now are even more thrilled that she is having her first child soon. She is all things pink, tutu and sweet. And she is having a boy! I have such a hard time coming up with ideas for baby boys to make. I think I finally figured it out.
I had been wanting to make these FABULOUS Fabric Baskets found on SEW4HOME. You can view all the instructions on their website.
I picked up these ‘boyish’ fabrics:
And got to work! I was able to complete all three in one day. However, there was a HUGE hiccup where I purchased the wrong weight stablizer. Mine was WAY too thick and after breaking 2 needles and jamming my machine 4 times I gave up. And you all know that when you return to the fabric store for more of the same fabrics -you cannot find them. My third basket is a different color but still cute!
They are just the perfect size to store diapers and wipes, or small toys, or socks and Ts.
I think the fabric choices are adorable too!
I love using my 1/4 inch foot to get those nice lines:
Added a sweet green bow:
Tossed this adorably soft little guy in:
And wrapped them all up. I hope these are a gift that she can use for years. That is why I chose them!
