A Toy Basket For Rory
I've made a very simple fabric basket using the leftovers from the baby quilt I'd made for my grandson and it's ideal for storing his cuddly toys! Although I didn't use a commercial pattern, I did follow the construction method that Little Patch Pockets uses in her fabric baskets - I've made a few of those before, and they are much easier to make than this huge beast! For the sides and base, which I wanted to be structured, I used some ByAnnie Soft and Stable wadding whch I then quilted the fabrics onto. The fabrics were from the Kaikoura collection by Jessica Zhao for Cotton+Steel which I'd originally bought online from Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory and the lining fabric was from my stash. I really need to get some cuter labels for future projects for my grandson, so he knows they were made with love by his Nanny! The binding was machined to the inside of the basket, then folded over and machined onto the outside. It may just need a few more toys ready for a soecial little boy's playtime!
