I'm not the sort who likes to be defeated, so I managed to get the first fabric basket into a useable state. It's not the best but passable. I decided to try again to make a smaller version to hold my own patterns for the market. Nothing like putting massive pressure on yourself cutting into not one, but two fabrics which shouldn't be cut. I used every last scrap of the dark blue ovals in my stash. I've still got a bit more Happy Map, but I know it's special. Someone had to order it in swedish or norwegian or perhaps swahili to have it imported to Australia just for me. I reckon these baskets will get a lot of visibility in my sewing room holding odds and ends once my markets pass on August 8th.

Some of my fabrics. I have way too many. :) I want to photograph all of them so that I can easily choose a suitable fabric for a project without going through all the boxes. I collect mostly fabrics for clothes. Love linen and cotton + all kinds of natural blends.
