WIP Wednesday: March 28
Welcome to Work In Progress Wednesday! I have a couple of projects I am working on, with the first being new basket liners.
A couple of weeks ago I bought some baskets that were half price at Michael's to keep my kitchen towels in. The baskets came with liners, but since they had been sitting on the shelf both in the store and outside on the sidewalk shelving, I wanted to make sure they were clean before I put my clean kitchen towels in them. I threw them in the wash and they came out like this:
I finished 2 out of three and the third is cut and waiting to be put together. I had to use fabric I had on hand, and this was what I had that had enough to make all 3 liners. I am pretty sure this fabric was earmarked for something, but I don't know what. Hopefully, whatever it was, there will be enough left to do it. :)
The third liner got put aside in order to use my kitchen table to feed my family a meal or two, and then to work on the Rocky and Bullwinkle quilt. It is coming along. I decided kind of spur of the moment last night to chop up all the remaining fabric and make a scrappy border. It is still going to be pretty small for my dad. I hope to get the top done today. It is my dad's birthday today, so I did not make the deadline, which is a bit of a bummer.
The blue off to the left side there is the flannel backing.
Those are my WIPs for the moment!
