    I really needed a larger basket for the kitchen to replace the small one that was holding my son's sippy cups.  It was overflowing to the point of things falling out.  I couldn't find anything I liked at a price point I could afford.
   So I dug into my stash and busted out this tute:

     I didn't follow the tute exactly.  Originally I made the 12 inch one but it was a lot bigger than I had anticipated.  So I ripped out out the seams and cut it down to the 8 inch size.  (sort of.  I mis-measured my top part and had to fudge it a bit lot.)   I made up my own handles to fit the amount of fabric I had on hand.  I also left out the bag part because I didn't really need it.  Since I wanted to use up stash &  I didn't have any pellon 70,  I used the lightweight interfacing I had on hand and some leftover quilt batting to help it stand up.  I free motion quilted the bottom and stitched in the ditch on the top.  My binding was leftover from another baby quilt so it's two different fabrics.  All in all I love how it turned out.  Smiley



all full up!:

Thanks for looking!

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

Cute cute! Yeah sippy cups out of control are never fun! I like that you call them sippy cups, my sil and I argue over the name, she says tippy, I say sippy!

I love the blue and yellow combo!

This is just fantastic.  I need to stash-bust and make, like, a thousand for my kiddos!  Very lovely.  Thanks for the link!

Love those colors!  Blue, yellow, and white -- my favorite color scheme.

You did a great job with this project, and I think it would make a terrific and unique gift for anyone.  Virtually everyone needs more containers and organizers nowadays.

Thanks for the good idea!

I keep thinking about doing that same tute without the bag like  you did. It looks like it turned out exactly like what I'm looking for!
