Two girls made a basket! My neighbor has joined in the basket making fun with me and we are addicted! Not only that, but we are getting a lot of interest so we decided we’d open up a shop and see how it goes. There isn’t anything posted yet but who knows where this could lead!
I’m up for an adventure!
Alright, so it wasn’t exactly what I had intended but I love it! I found this amazing tutorial on how to sew a basket and immediately had a flashback to Christmas. I had been seeing on pinterest all these Christmas tree’s in baskets and loved the idea of it.
When I had gone online to look for a basket, the prices stopped me in my tracks. I was already on a Christmas budget and was determined to spend most of my money on the girls this year (we have a big family!). So I put it aside thinking I’d look into it later. Well we all know what happens, I completely forget about it!
Then I saw a tutorial for how to make a basket and thought to myself, hey this could actually be affordable if my only cost is rope and thread! I was right. I can save a ton of money making this on my own, but I didn’t buy enough rope to try out that big of a basket, so I ended up with this size instead:
Turns out we really needed this size anyways! Brian and I have had a hard time sharing bowls to keep our keys and things in. Either they are too deep and someone gets stuck on the bottom or they are too big for the table. I feel like this was a great compromise!
I am proud of my little basket and plan on making more! I’m actually in the middle of a sisal one right now!
Let’s see if I can figure out how to make a Christmas tree basket before Christmas next year 😉 haha!
I am back from vacation! ❤ I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend and is ready for some fun. After spending a weekend in my hometown I could not be any more excited about the craft show coming up. Sometimes a little trip is all you need to spark up some new ideas and get crafty!
Lately I’ve been in a making mood. From my last post you can see I was working on a teddy bear 😀 It’s not quite finished yet but now that I’ve gotten a majority of it done – I’m really feeling like I can make pretty much anything now. Bring on those crazy patterns – I’m ready to tackle them!
I’ve also been in a making mood when it comes to food. If you didn’t already know – I’m not the best cook in the house 😉 My first attempts usually aren’t my best and I tend to get measurements mixed up often 😛 I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to start a new recipe over because I mix up Tablespoon and Teaspoon. It’s depressing. But after a little trial and error I usually get it right. Well, I went a little crazy and picked out a few new recipes and bought all the ingredients. I’m ready to get a little crazy in the kitchen!!
My second favorite thing about Easter this year is baskets 😀 I love baskets!! But this year I have a new twist for them. I’ll be using them to make pre-made baby gift sets to sell at the craft show. So thank you everyone who gave Emma baskets this year, and thank you Easter sales for making baskets el cheapo!
So here’s to new ideas, new patterns, new recipes, and getting a little crazy! I hope everyone’s ready to enjoy these next few weeks with me 😀
Thanks for stopping by!
