1-Hour Basket for Hunter

I became a grand-mother for the 3rd time over the weekend! Little Hunter was born Sunday morning at 4:39 AM - both baby and mommy are back at home now and doing really well.


Before he came along, Hunter's mom asked me to make a basket for his room. Something that could sit on a shelf right under his changing table and in which she could put baby wipes and a few diapers. I was more than happy to make that happen of course!

I wanted blue fabrics for this little basket, but couldn't find anything in my stash that would be appropriate for a baby's room. So I was going to order something, but then I discovered the perfect half yard cut sitting in a 1-hour basket I made a while ago. (I was actually looking at the basket to try and figure out what I had used to make it stand up!)


This is fabric I purchased from fellow Montreal MQG member and fabric designer Tamara from Tamara Kate. Aren't these zebras adorable?!

I had some blue Kona cotton leftover from Hunter's baby quilt so decided to use that to make a contrasting bottom and handles.  And because I had a half yard of the zebras, I went ahead and used the same fabric for the inside of the basket.


I'm super happy with how this basket turned out and I think my daughter will be pretty happy too!

Stats:

  • Pattern: 1-Hour Basket by Kelby Sews
  • Size: 6.5" high by 12" wide 
  • Fabrics: Origami Oasis by Tamara Kate and Kona Algeria 
  • Thread: Pieced with Aurifil #2600 in 50 wt 
  • Recipient: Little Hunter


I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Musings of a Menopausal Melon for TGIFF.
