Tall “Pin” Basket


Although I call this my “Pin” basket, I don’t use it for pins!   But I love text and novelty fabrics and so I sort of call this fabric my “Pin” fabric.  I found this fabric when we out in the Seattle area, in a fabric store on Whidbey Island.  I think I bought all they had – they were just some fat quarters.  There was no selvage identification or anything, so I don’t know what it is! But the fabric is great for fussy cutting.

I used some linen that I had and cut out motifs from the Pin fabric with pinking shears. I used very firm stabilizer and boxed the corners so it would stand up.  I made a custom button for the front and  I added a grommet just for fun so I have it hanging from a hook in my sewing area.   I also added a little detail tab from tape measure ribbon that I had:


This is actually one of my favorite things I’ve ever sewn and I was just sort of fooling around when I made it – a pleasant surprise!
