Making baskets out of scraps is very addicting. As you can see They multiply very easily!
All you have to do is sew your scraps together into a piece of fabric and trim that fabric into a triangle with pointy or a flat bottom!
I made a few and wondered about the background.. As you can see, I tried a couple of them.
My poor husband politely said, "They are cute but you can't really see them. The baskets were getting lost!"
My friend Kelly commented that she liked the medium background because she always chooses light backgrounds.
The light bulb went on!
I, always choose dark backgrounds !
It is time for a change..
and while I am at it,
Why not go crazy all the way?
So I did!
I am happy with where this is going..
Here is how it will look when all the blocks come together.
Crazy background for my crazy baskets.
I put a handle on one of them.
First I cut the shape out of the scrap.
Then I machine basted it with long stitch and hand appliqued the out side edge.
Then trimmed the center of the appliqued handle in desired thickness and appliqued inner edge of the handle.
I sewed the handle section and the base to the basket!
Couldn't help sneaking in a printed scrap.
I like this one a lot..

This is definitely a great start to my Monday morning.
Hope you are having a good day!
