Awhile back I attended a baby shower for none other than skirt as top. I guess you’ve got all the gear you need by the time you get to baby #3, so this was a diaper shower. But I couldn’t very well bring diapers without sewing something to hold them. Kristin has sewn a multitude of Divided Baskets as baby gifts, which I figured must mean she thinks they make good baby gifts, right? So I went with that. I looked through her Camp Ivanhoe Pinterest board to see what might work with the baby’s new room, and picked out a fabric from Sarah Watson’s Indian Summer line.
The Divided Basket is one of many wonderful Noodlehead patterns. This is my third basket (first two here) – it’s such a fun pattern with such a useful end result, and it’s surprisingly quick to sew after you get everything interfaced. This time I followed Anna’s advice from this post and used Pellon 809 in conjunction with fusible fleece for the main basket pieces. If you’re using all quilting cottons, this combination of interfacing gives the basket a nice amount of structure.
Baby skirt as top, I can’t wait to meet you and maybe even mop up a little of your cute spit! 🙂
