Long, long ago...a little girl used to ring the doorbell. Her mother would answer and ask who's there. The little girl would always be someone different but her first choice was always Little Red Riding Hood. No matter how many times the little girl rang the doorbell, the mother would come open the door and ask who she was...
Yes, you guessed it...I am Little Red Riding Hood. *wink* So anything with this on it is special to my mother and I. My mother gave me this pretty picture one Christmas. Her Little Red Riding Hood at the door. So when I was at a big indoor fabric market and found some children's fabric with Little Red Riding Hood on it, I knew I had to get some and make a birthday gift for me mother.
I decided on a fabric basket to hold her knitting. I took the measurements from this tutorial and the instructions from this tutorial to sew the basket.
In working with this method, you end up with four corner squares of fabric from the fabric and lining leftover. Rather than waste this fabric, I sewed these pieces together and created a small basket to match the large one. I sewed the method from the tutorial I used for the measurements since she does hers in 5 pieces for the basket which is what I had left from the large basket adding one extra square from the fabric I had left. Clear as mud? *grins* I got two basket out of a half meter of fabric and still have a fat quarter left for something else.
They were fun to sew and easy to follow the tutorials. A great way to make a project basket for knitting, crocheting, stitching or quilting.
Happy birthday again Mom from Little Red Riding Hood!
