Another fabric basket

The fabric basket I made before was so fun that I decided to make another one (from the tutorial found here). This time I made the smaller size basket, and I used a quilt weight fabric for it.

I thought the combination looked rather "springy".

This basket is quite a bit smaller than my first one. It measures 5½" x 3½" x almost 4" high. Here's a little size comparison:

And here it is next to my original basket:

The little one is Courtney's Easter gift. Of course I had to stuff it with a little goodie. I'll show you that another day!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter celebration tomorrow! And do remember that the real celebration is not about bunnies and eggs, but rather the resurrection of our Lord and Savior!

Linking up to Amylouwho's Sew & Tell:

What a darling basket! It looks like you're getting very close to crossing the line between sewing and quilting... From there, it's a very slippery slope. Be careful- Still waiting for your first quilt... although, the mug rug you made a while back could also be considered a mini quilt. Not long before you're a full fledged quilter.

Thanks, Kris! Haha... yeah, I know... I'm scaring myself! But I haven't made a mug rug... have I?!?

Great! Yeah, they 'are' kind of addicting, aren't they? :) Trouble is, I want to make more of 'everything' I make, but don't really have use for it all. :)

Do you have a blog or Flickr account where your things can be seen?
