A Caddy for My Stuff!


I had a bee meeting earlier in the week, hosted by my friend, Patty Bischoff.  She taught us to make this cute liner to go over a plastic basket.  It has pockets both inside and out.  It was a bit complicated for me, since I'm used to making flat quilts, but it turned out well, I think.   Note the grommet for the handle to go through - very professional, I think.  Thanks, Patty, for the great lesson.

You know the drill, I couldn't buy anything to make it.  I used yardage I bought in Paducah last spring at Eleanor Burn's tent sale.  Everything there was $4 per yard!  The navy with green splotches is a Kaffe Fasset woven.  I didn't want to use up my batting, so it's filled with white felt that has been hanging around my studio for a year or so.  I'm planning to use it for my hand sewing supplies, keeping them corralled when I'm stitching in the den or on the deck.

What did I do when I finished?  I made another one!  It was fun, but I think two is enough!

Hey Judy, Congrats on finishing your caddy. It looks great and even better it's "all green". I enjoyed the day too. Every time I teach, I learn from my students. - Patty

Just came by for a visit and to say thanks for dropping in on my blog!

Wow, my hat goes off to you...I have a hard time passing a quilt or fabric store.

Love the basket!
