Round Basket Liner

I was commissioned by a friend to make her a lining for a round basket she got. I recalled making a liner for a round basket many years ago. At that time, I used a hot glue gun to adhere the liner to the basket. But thanks to Google, I was able to find an excellent tutorial online without using a yucky hot glue gun this time around.

She picked out this brown floral pattern -- super cute!

It's amazing what you can find on the internet these days, isn't it!? I only had a dark red ribbon available on hand, but she can definitely swap it out with a brown one to go with the fabric. I can't wait to see this basket filled up with her gorgeous malabrigo yarns!

I am itching to do some hand quilting. Must assemble a quilt top so I can get those thimbles on my fingers asap. I am thinking to make something with these Japanese taupe fabrics I got from PIQF last year. 

Ah, I am in love with Japanese taupe fabric.

I cannot wait to have my hair done this weekend. It's so disgusting I wish I could wear a hat to work to just cover it all up! San Francisco, here I come!
