i made this lovely basket from the great-great-great tutorial from Elizabeth aka Oh!Fransson for SewMamaSew. You can find it here
to tell you the truth: it took hours to make. really.
lots of cutting, ironing and quite a bit of material: you will need a big piece of fusible interfacing. and some heavyweight interfacing (i took some home dec fabric, two pieces per side, which i won´t use anymore).
but it is really worth it: this basket is very sturdy, pretty and to work with the tutorial from Elizabeth is a pure joy: she explains everything sooo very well - great!!
i had to sew something that most likely would turn out all right, because yesterday i gave my tunik neck-seam another try - and failed again! for the forth time! and you know what: i will try it again..
Anyway, something soothing was totally necessary :-)
