Divided Tote from Noodle-Head

by Katie on January 21, 2014

Quick sewing projects are the perfect cure for “I have so many projects I don’t know which one to work on right now” syndrome. Because naturally, when you have a gazzilion unfinished projects, starting a new one will surely help in some way. ;) Ok, so maybe that’s not true, but I DO love a project that you can start and finish in a single day! It’s just so satisfying.

After seeing all of the adorable baskets on Sarah Quilts, I just had to give one a try. The Divided Basket pattern from Noodle-Head was so simple – I can’t wait to make another.

My first try consisted of Leah Duncan’s Tule fabrics [a la Art Gallery] (with a few stash pieces mixed in) that I picked up at Urban Arts and Crafts (my favorite sewing and craft supply store in, quite possibly, the world) over Christmas. Instead of using the suggested interfacing and fleece, I used some fusible web and batting. It still came out great, though next time I’ll pick up the proper supplies, or try making the baskets out of canvas. Such a fun project!

It’s such a lovely pattern. Check it out if you’re in the mood for a quick, simple, useful project!
