I didn't get to my sewing last night as some horrible upset stomach hit me. ICK!  Thank goodness I didn't see any of my food again though it felt like I was going to.  I, like many others, have no time to be sick. 

Anyway,  this morning I am feeling a bit better and decided to go try again to make a fabric basket.  I changed my pattern, looked for new fabric, and this time went so much more smoothly.  The outside fabric is a canvas I bought a few years ago to make a purse.  Yeah obviously that didn't get done.  lol.  So, luckily I had it for this project.  I know what your are thinking... Mary, you are so prim why did you buy these colors.  The answer is I love brown and pink together just like I like teal and brown together.  Besides this will be in my craft room, which is in my dark basement.  This will lighten it up a bit. :-)

I probably should have stiffened up the sides, but then if I leave it this way I can smoosh more baskets together on the shelf I have.

Here it is...  I changed the measurements to 11"X11"X11".  If you can sew straight seams you can sew this.  There is only a total of 9 seams.

 As you can see my brown scraps are in here.

I will make a pattern for the next one I make and post it.  Until then have a great day!
