Makeover Monday:3/18

With Easter right around the corner, the basket orders are still rolling in.  Two years ago I made a green and white Easter basket for a little girl in Tennessee.  Now she has a baby brother, and her mom wanted to go with green and white again.  It was important to make his different and more "masculine", however, so we decided on more of a bucket shape with a couple of stripes as well.
How sweet did this turn out?!  Part of what I love about working with fabric is never knowing 100% what the finished product will actually look like.  It's usually a wonderful surprise!
Two more baskets to go and 50 bale covers to cut before spring break.  I really needed today to not be a snow day, but at least now I have errand running company :)

I love how you pay attention to the details! :) Green and white but masculine - I think it came out beautifully! I do not envy you for all the bales you have to cut but am thankful you have errand running company today too! :) Be safe out there! ♥ Dawn

This post truly put a smile on my face. That basket has just the right amount of "boy.". You said it perfectly--you just never know how the end result will turn out. Always a pleasant surprise.

Brought my little boy to the dermatologist today--two moles shaved off. What a trooper--he only winced a bit from the pain!

Beautiful basket Jennie! I love the fabrics and especially the detail touch on the bow with the stripes showing out and the polka dot always pay so much attention to the complete product that you're working on, which in turn adds just that special little "something" to all of your crafted items!

When things start getting overly logical, the attraction disappears.
By doing this, you are allowing yourself to get what you want as you want it.
