Finished Fabric Basket

I got around to finishing the fabric basket today and it is bigger than I thought.
 It is 20 inches or 50cm in diameter.It is pretty big and as I suspected it does not stand up on its own despite all the pieces of plastic milk bottle I used.  It has lots and lots but they are all short so this is why it won't stand up.  It doesn't need to anyway as once it is full it stays upright.
These are what I used to stiffen it. 
This was girls dress ups before...
and girls dress ups after
Boys dress ups before....
and after.
Now I have a spare drawer!
I think it turned out ok but I will make a smaller one next time.

    2. Ahhh, I'm blaming apple device compatibility issues.

      BTW I love your use of the milk bottles as 'bones' - I use cut up plastic supermarket meat trays - but you have to wash them really well (smelly) and they have ripples and bumps in them. I'll have to buy bottled milk; cartons are just not helpful in these circumstances :0)

  7. Those are great! Even though they don't stand on their own, they're still fantastic, and will work really well for dress up storage!

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
