lil' basket.

I made this little basket the other night because I was looking for a start to finish project. I had been thinking about making this for a while and I had the tutorial bookmarked for months. There is a sweet lil' blogger by the name of Ayumi, who blogs at Pink Penguin, if you haven't checked her out yet, what are you waiting for?
I used linen and mostly vintage fabric scraps for this basket, although, you might recognize a piece of michael miller dumb dots in there! I couldn't resist, I love a polka dot.

For now it's storing little sewing bits, but in the future I think this would be a great way to present a baby gift like a burp cloth, handmade rattle, and bib. This would be adorable in a baby's room. Enjoy what's left of your Monday...
