Ever since Shannon posted her free Box Tote Pattern I’ve wanted to make some. The other day Natalie and I were looking for something to sew and we picked out these super cheery fabrics and made two! I think I could make a dozen more, they’re so fun and quick, especially after you have everything cut and interfacing fused.
The colors in Geo Pop were just what was needed for a cold winter day here, it’s been so gray that these baskets warmed up the whole room. I think they’d be great for packing with a few goodies for a birthday present. So we’ll probably do that for the next party. I even busted out my hoarded Summersville by Lu Summers. It just looked too perfect.
The only tricky part is the last step of getting those curves sewn, but it went way more smoothly than I first thought it might. Just take your time, go slow and use lots of pins (although I almost tried glue basting, I think that would work well!).
