Pin It Wednesday #8

Beautiful baskets with a great basket borderIt's a Wednesday, and I remembered!  Go me!  After seriously the negatives of posting pictures from Pinterest, I just can't seem to help myself.  I think I'll spend just a minute on Pinterest and an hour later, I'm still pinning.  I may as well share my pins, right?

Let's start with basket quilts.  There are some beauties out there!

May Basket quilt.. Happy May DayAren't these sewing basket blocks just too cute?  I'm thinking they will make great inspiration blocks for a larger wall hanging for the sewing studio. 
could make a wall hanging with several sewing basket blocks!
How about some fun craft ideas.  Understand that I pin craft ideas that I really like and would consider actually attempting.  It's one of the few boards that I've created for my own needs.
shoe box lids, scrapbook paper, modge podge, letters, ribbon, and a curtain rod.....change out what it says with seasons.

1. Buy plates from Dollar Store or use old mismatched ones 2. Write things with a Sharpie   3. Bake for 30 mins in the 150 oven and it's permanent!Directions for the wall hanging above: shoe box lids, scrapbook paper, modge podge, letters, ribbon, and a curtain rod.....change out what it says with seasons.  It would work well for a child's room, don't you think?  I like that the box lids are different sizes but are all evenly lined up along the bottom.

bagsketsThis plate is one of my favorite ideas.  Simply write on the plate with a Sharpie marker then bake in the oven at 150 degrees for 30 minutes.  It's permanent and safe to use.

The basket on the left is called a "bagsket," which I take to mean half bag, half basket.  Regardless, it's just as cute as can be.
really cute and easy

Christmas Dresdens  Love the bindingFinally, one of my favorite patterns is the Dresden plate pattern, so naturally I have a board just for Dresdens.  I've found so many, though, that I couldn't show them all even if I were to post only Dresdens.
