#yarnstitchswap

I joined a swap on IG a few weeks ago where the idea of the swap was that you sew something and then you get something knitted or crocheted in return. My partner gave me a list of things she wanted so I picked one and went with it. I picked the Noodlehead Divided Basket pattern. I knew she likes colorful fabrics so I figured that the lovely fat eighth bundle of Mor Mor and Sylvia I had sitting would be a lovely choice for her. I didn’t just want to make a plain baskets that would be too boring. I cut out 2” triangles and I have to say I love the results. I embellished the pocket…

…and then on the other side I put a strip of triangles going down it.

I ordered some DearStella scissors from Patterncrush for the lining and some Essex dyed linen in black from Westwood Acres. When the linen arrived in the mail I knew it was meant to be. I have to say my basket is jealous of the time and effort I put into this one ;)

Jealous or not I love my basket. I keep it just behind my sewing machine the current things I am working on have seemed to gather in there.

it is gorgeous :-) I am curious too what you used for interfacing and whether it is a straightforward pattern?

Just had to comment on this adorable basket! I've made many from this pattern, but never dressed them up like this, with the patchwork. This is just the ultimate!
