Friday Morning...the sprinkler is doing it's thing on our very dry gardens...the Florida Girlz with our visiting Linda are on their way to an Outsider Art Festival in St. Pete...and I want to share pictures of my latest project. The great thing from this end, is that I actually spent a bit of time in the studio with fabric, glue gun, needle and thread!
Somewhere and time this summer I picked up an old sewing basket with the intention of doing a make over. I finally took out the dirty scary insides and did my thing. It was one of those "make it up as you go along" projects that we do best!
The main technical detail that I fail to consider was the closure loop that is right underneath the front felt triangle (you can see it in the pic below)...but I'm sure that I can come up with something! It would make a great pocketbook too. I think the next one will have more little pockets and slots for holding the essentials!

Yesterday I put some Felty Surprize Packs together, and they would be perfect for embellishing this and countless other projects. Next step, get them up on the website!! Have a great weekend!

Speaking as a sewing basket addict, I am charmed. Now I want to dig out a basket and do something like that.

About the clasp - what if you put a slit in the felt triangle that's covering it, and brought the loop through?
