Another Basket...of Course!

Of course I HAD to make a Pink Penguin basket in Valentine's fabrics...Moda's "Love is in the Air" is perfect for this project! I've never purchased Valentine's fabrics before, so it has been fun playing with them!

I made a few more zipper bags...they are just so fun to make!


And I have to share my give-away win from Vivian at Quilts With Love. I found Vivian's blog several months ago. She is an amazingly talented free-hand machine quilter who shares not only gorgeous quilting and beautiful quilts on her blog but also thoughtful insights on family and home.
The beautiful Christmas pendant is from Home Studio--a delightful Etsy shop with so many beautiful pendants made from Scrabble tiles! And the Scentsy car candle smells wonderful! Thanks Vivian!
Happy Sewing!

Love the basket and I love making those zipper bags too. I need to get some more zippers next time I go to Joann's. I have 2 little scrabble pendants. One is a matryoshka and one is a hive. I love them.

Sherri, I'm so glad you sent the link for the bags! I'm trying to make a scripture bag and I think that basket/bag will work.

BTW, Natalie J. is coming to stay with me next week!

Congrats on your win. And thanks for the kind comments.

Hey Sherri!
Thanks so much for the zippered bag you made for me!! I LOVE IT!
I'm paranoid of zippers, but the bags are so cute, I just might have to try!
Thanks again!!

Those zipper bags are just too cute and look pretty easy to make. I could probably figure out how to do it myself, but thought it might be easier to ask if there is a pattern or tutorial somewhere that I could look at. A pointer would be appreciated :)

Love all the fabrics and your little Valentine fabric basket is darling too!

Thanks,
