One Hour Basket

I was able to work on a quick project Saturday.  The free 1 Hour Basket tutorial was kindly shared by Hearts & Bees on Craftsy and can be found on the Craftsy site.

Let me be honest, it took me a few hours; but I am still a newbie.  I had a great canvas find I had picked up at Tuesday Morning and this looked like a good project to use it.  The cute fat quarter for the inside was from FreeSpirit Fabrics' Bridgette Lane collection, designed by Valori Wells. .Aren't those little elephants adorable?   I could so see this as a diaper holder or burp cloth holder.

I didn't have any fusible fleece onhand, but hoped the canvas would be sturdy enough to give the basket enough stability and, of course,

when I added  a bunch of my Free Spirit fat quarter bundles, it did!

This was a fun, quick project with great instuctions.  Now, I need to make several more for the rest of my fat quarter bundles :)

Happy quilting!
