Little Linen Basket By Susie

Have you had a chance to try making an
origami butterfly yet?
It's this month's theme for the 

As soon as I had made my butterfly,
I wondered where it might land.
I loved Susie's idea to attach it to a
darling little fabric basket!

Would you believe...
Susie has actually created
a FREE TUTORIAL for making this
Leaf N Linen Basket?

It's available right this minute to download, on Craftsy!

I have to admit it...
I've got a "thing" for little containers.
Whether it's pouches or tins,
boxes or baskets,
I love to collect them.
They're fun to use for keeping little things in one place.

I had sew much fun making this little basket,
and the instructions were very easy to follow.
I'm thrilled with the quilted linen exterior.

I just pulled out the necessary supplies,
and in less than an hour,
I had a finished basket for my butterfly.

I love looking at it from all angles.
The quilting design looks cool on the sides,
dontcha think?

This little piece of cute will be my new sewing buddy.
I can get lots more notions in there,
you know.

After I'm finished with my project,
I think I'll use it to keep some candy handy!

I wish I could share some candy,
or some sewing time, with you.
Thank goodness for Craftsy...we can ALL enjoy
