on Our Way

While I am on my way to Greenville, SC today (after a busy morning homeschooling the little ones!), there is a little package on it's way to my most recent swap partner.

Modern Bits swap

I played along with the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap, because I can't resist the lure of scraps.  The few times I've received scraps from friends in the mail, it's been such fun to hunt through them.  And, when I use them, I totally remember!

Pink Penguin basket pattern

In this swap, we're exchanging scraps and a little handmade something.  Lucky me - my secret partner requested a fabric basket! I ran right over to Pink Penguin to use Ayumi's tutorial.

I hope these colors and fabrics suit my partner.  The little lovebirds always get me.  And, the basket is so very tiny.  I can't get over the perfection of it's size.  Thanks for a great pattern, Ayumi!

If you haven't found an excuse to need a tiny basket yet, let me help you out.  I'm thinking cutting waste, special scraps, baby toys, cat toys, doll clothes, play kitchen... Really, who doesn't need one?  I obviously do now.

Wishing us all safe journeys and happy adventures this weekend!

  17. It was great to meet you at The Indie Craft Parade today. Your booth was very inspirational and I LOVE my new coasters. Of course, I have to fight my daughter to use them :-) I look forward to following your blog.

  18. I need to buy more fabric so I have more scraps. I don't think that's how it's supposed to work. Oh well.

    1. Well, I do enjoy scraps even more than yardage, so I'm not going to argue with your reasoning!

  19. Hope your craft show was a success!! I'm sure it was, based on what we saw :)

    On another note, I was wondering how the not pre-washing fabric was working out for you.

    1. Well, I don't have any regrets about not prewashing yet. It's certainly faster! I'll let you all know if I get into trouble with it =)

  20. I agree. Ayumi's basket is just the perfect little size! I've made two for gifts, but not one for keeps. I might have to do that soon!
