I was excited about this project ! I chose the same fabric than my bumper for my sewing desk : I want to use the basket to keep my desk empty. Just by looking at the picture, I was expecting a bigger basket, so I’m a little disappointed by the size, but the result still looks great !

The tutorial is well explained. I did a mistake though : don’ t sew the corner with the square shape !!

And now the pictures :

I have to admit that the picture doesn’ t look good … I will try to take a better one soon …
What do you think?

Here is another project ! Quick, simple and nice result ! I didn’t need any invitation but I found a way to transform the project into something working for me 😉 I changed my mind between the beginning of the process and the final result …

Picture of the preparation :


And here here the result, with a totally different pattern :

the result !

it was a nice experience, however, I’m not sure I would create sewn invitations for a wedding : it would probably take too much time …. I mean, I did some custom invitations for my wedding, it took me forever …

By the way, I love the website : lots of nice ideas !

March will be a difficult month… I’m not inspired by the projects. I mean, I know that’s it’s impossible to be thrilled by every single project, but still … March projects look boring / useless and  I don’t think I will enjoy working on them.

Here is the list :

– recycled bath mat : I actually just finished it ….. just one word : Crap !

– Sewn invitations : yeah … we already had a card for Valentine’ Day .. Not to mention that I don’t have any invitation to send …

– Bow tie Hair clip : I have a baby boy, not girl … This one might still be funny though …

– Snuggly Ribbon Blanket : useless for me … and I don’t really like the look …

– Robot Doll Pocket Pillow : I already messed up the matyroshka doll …This project is pretty much the same but instead of a doll, it’s a robot …

– Ric Rac Dahlia Brooch: is it a sewing project or a craft project? seriously …

– Fabric Basket : ok, this one ay be the best of the month ! I can’t wait !

– Shower cap : ok, joker …. Not sure I’m interested in this one … at all …

I can’t wait being in April !
