One Hour Baskets

When my mum was here for Easter she made two One Hour Baskets. I've already  shown you the first one which was for me:




but I haven't shown you the second one, which is for my 6 year old niece, Jorja. Fortunately I had these pink fabrics in my stash. They had come in a mystery box I purchased through Craftsy last year, and they were just right for a dainty little girl.




If you'd like to make one of these baskets, got to Kelby Sews and follow her pattern. It's free!

One of my lovely followers. Jeanette from Sydney, Australia, liked the idea so much that she stepped out of her comfort zone and bought some bright fabrics for her One Hour Basket. Isn't Jeanette's lovely too, and what about the view from her apartment!







I love that yellow on the inside of the basket - it's so sunny. For the Aussies and Kiwis out there, Jeanette got her fabrics at Spotlight.

Sydney has been having some terrible weather this week. I've seen TV reports showing huge waves in the harbour which they really aren't used to. We're built of tough stuff here in Wellington, and we get winds up to 130 kph at least once or twice a year. It was very strange to see waves crashing across the roads in Sydney Harbour. I hope everyone there is OK and the weather has calmed down now.

I'm linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday.

Beautiful baskets! Thank you for the link to the pattern Wendy, I think I might have a go, though I am pretty sure mine will take slightly longer than an hour lol! Read about the earthquakes on IG, scary stuff, stay safe!

Those baskets look such a handy size. Thanks for giving the link for the pattern. I visited Spotlight Singapore this week and got some good bargains in their 30% off sale.

What I like is the bright, cheerful fabric. I can see, oh, so many uses for these. Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments about the fidget quilts. They are fun to make.

The only way pink gets into Wendy's house is by sneaking in in a mystery bundle, eh?
