I have had the Valencia Street Bike Basket tutorial link saved on my Pinterest for quite some time.
My two granddaughters are six and five years old…new bike riders. I’ve decided the time has come to make the bike basket.
Palak Shah’s tutorial is easy to follow and the basket is quick to make. You could make it without the ties and just have a nice basket. Or you could add ties to every corner and just leave them tied as bows for a decorative touch to the basket. The basket doesn’t have to be used for a bike. It could be a useful room decoration.
I don’t have a bike, so I couldn’t tie the basket to the handlebars to show to you, but you get the idea.
My granddaughters will be getting these for Christmas.
I’m sure they’ll love them!
I think so!
Love them! Are you sure they’ll be able to wait until Christmas?
If the girls lived closer, then Grandma couldn’t wait until Christmas to give them!
These are adorable Laura! Your granddaughters are going to love them!
I think they will love them too, Marjorie!
wish i had the motivation to do sewing. i have a baby loc embroidery machine and recently bought a serger, but no energy or interest. and yet all the sewing that’s being done. don’t know how to get started. get motivated not sure what it is.. but really enjoy looking at what you gals make. wish there was someone around that would like to do this with me.
thanks for sharing.
Pinterest motivates me. Joining a quilt guild motivates me. Taking online classes, such as Craftsy offers, motivates me. Following other bloggers also motivates me. Finding online friendships helps since I do live in isolation.
Sewing is fun! Start with quick and easy projects for instant gratification and move on to projects that take a bit more effort and time.
I hope you find your inspiration/motivation.
