Little Prince

Another weekend, another baby shower!  I feel like everyone I know is pregnant or just had a baby.  Today I went to a baby shower for a friend expecting a little boy after two sweet girls.  Lizzy House's Castle Peeps line in the blue colorway seemed just perfect for this eagerly awaited addition to their family.


I made this bin pretty much the same way as my tutorial for the Fussy Foldover Basket, but with larger pieces (22" wide x 17" tall with 5.5" squares cut out the bottom corners) and the addition of pellon craft fuse for serious stiffness.  Also, obviously, no pocket or folding over.  Happy to make up a tutorial if anyone is interested, as I could use one of these for myself!


Inside I stuffed some diapers along with a onesies, burp cloth and blankee with more fabric from the Castle Peeps line.  Not the best picture, but the sunshine was just streaming in this morning (not complaining at all!) and now the goods are gone!

Happy Saturday, and Go Tar Heels!  I will be doing some hand quilting while I watch UNC in the ACC final, I love March Madness! xo, Courtney
