So recently I got all creative with old sheets. It was phenomenally satisfying finding a new use for the old, pre-loved, worn out sheets lurking around our apartment and our local op-shops. My partner and I got to the local farmers market every weekend we can, and I always look balefully at the gorgeous baskets there that people carry around with all their fresh produce in. I felt like I had the solution lurking nearby.
Turns out I did.
I made a basket out of our old sheets, and a couple that I grabbed from our local oppy.
To make it feel more playful and fun, I worked a whole pile of old fabric strips and scraps and pieces of ribbon and ric rac in to it.
I really love the way it turned out. It’s the perfect size (about 40cm across) for taking to the markets or packing a project into it to take around to a friends house.
I wish I had thought to write out the pattern as I went! Now I think I’ll just have to make another one so I can work out the pattern again mwah ha ah aha ha ahahaaa.
