More Quilter’s Caddy

I need (yes… really, really need) to make some time to sew for fun. 

Remember these?

I have now made a caddy for another beautiful grandaughter:

She is five years old now (she was 3 when the above photo was taken).

She will receive her own caddy from Grandma…maybe for Christmas…maybe sooner if I can’t wait that long.

Quilter’s Caddy

I found an online tutorial, by Linda Rainwater, for a quilter’s caddy, and decided to take the time to make one.

I’ve made it in the future colors of my sewing studio, and I love it! 

It contains my hexagon project.

I can’t stop with just one.

This one is for Miss Ladybug, who is now 2 years older than this picture, but you can see why she gets this caddy.

I am going to make more of these baskets, both for myself, and because I have more grandchildren.

I had to alter the pattern to fit the basket that I bought from the Dollar Store.

Instead of using hardware mesh for the pockets, I used fabric (and interfaced for body and sturdiness).  And instead of using grosgrain ribbon to attach the pockets, I made matching bias tape.

If you want to make one (or several) of these handy dandy caddies, then click here for the tutorial.
