My Pixie Basket

Have you see it the Pixie Baskets
making their way into blogs and
Instagrams and every quilter's heart?
Here's my contribution to this teeny trend.


Heidi Staple of Fabric Mutt
has generously provided a free tutorial,
so that anyone can make a Pixie Basket.
They require very little fabric and time...
and you get a whole bunch of cuteness in the end.


I used some scraps of Simply Color
by V and Co for Moda, for my basket.


I like the navy blue interior and the lime accent band
against a lighter outside fabric.
This little basket aren't destined to get very dirty, after all.
It will be kept on a pedestal and will only be asked to stay cute.


And speaking of cute...
can you barely stand the sweet buttons inside the basket?
They are a treasured gift from my dearest friend,
and I recognized those button cards right away.


by the incomparable Amy Sinibaldi of nanacompany.
You can print them and attach your own favorite buttons.
Trust me...they make an awesome present.
