Man, I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. The short version: April was crazy, y'all. Between my birthday, Easter, an unexpected solo road trip to Atlanta, and a planned road trip to Memphis, the month flew by. I'm going to do my best to catch up (prepare yourself for some upcoming personal posts), but for today, let's get to one of the few sewing projects I've managed to finish lately.
pattern from Noodlehead, and it gets easier every time. (You can see my other versions here and here.) The fabrics were based on the colors from her registry, so I hope she'll be able to find some use for the basket in the nursery. I love this aqua/yellow/gray combination. I've had the front fabric (how to make paper hats!) in my stash for quite sometime, and I was so excited to find the perfect project for all that cuteness. This was a total stash project, too, which makes me feel a little less guilty about that order I just placed with Hawthorne Threads ... (birthday money, you know?).
