baby basket

Daughter Knit and Pearl received a commission
to put together a  baby basket to be raffled off
 tomorrow evening at a local event.
We sewed shoes, bibs, burp cloths

and a receiving blanket for the basket.
She will be sewing a couple of tag toys tonight to add to it.
We thought the fancy stitching
 around the blanket turned out adorable!
We even cut out vintage illustrations
 from a tattered Peter Rabbit storybook
 to make blocks for the basket.
Some mama will be lucky to win it.



  1. Gosh, I hope we don't throw our shoulders out patting ourselves on our backs, but we sure kicked butt on this basket Mom!!! Thanks for your help and you can guarantee this mom to be will be trying to win this basket. :)
