I love the idea of fabric baskets.

Adjustable height. Collapsible. Colorful.

Fabric Baskets

Other projects have gotten in the way of my actually making any myself, but I’m lucky that my mom was itching to make me a diaper bag. Since I always just toss a diaper and some wipes in my purse, I asked if she’d take the fabric she was going to use in the diaper bag and make some baskets instead.

These monkeys and elephants make me smile – they’re bright and playful and when they aren’t needed for diapers, I might snag them to hold sewing notions!

As motivation to get to sewing some of these, I proposed and am coordinating a basket swap among our Quilters’ Fantasy Football league members. Deadlines are so motivating!
