Inspiration in the form of a pink penguin

Well actually no real pink penguins were involved in this creative process only a new blog I found called Pink Penguin. I can't remember how I came across this blog but I am so glad I did. This fabric basket tutorial got my juices flowing and I am so grateful. After I first saw these I spent a few nights thinking up all the great things I could do with these and then finally yesterday I just had to take a little time and get started. You can click the link above to go straight to the tutorial for how to make one. I altered her tutorial somewhat because I wanted to make something that would be fairly quick and easy to make. Here is what I came up with.

For my first try I used up the rest of the Easter fabric I had left over from my other Easter Basket project. I thought this size of basket would be really cute for Easter too. I am not sure even what size this one that I made is. I just cut fabric and followed the general instructions in the tutorial for how to put it together. It turned out kind of small but is actually perfect for a little basket to put on my desk to hold cards like these Easter cards I just made. Fun idea isn't it. Thanks a million Pink Penguin for helping me out of my creative slump.

  1. So cute, thanks for the link!

  2. I love that chick card, I don't remember seeing that up here and what about that other one in the bucket? No fair giving us peeks but not showing!

    Hope you are feeling better, the first trimester can really kick your rear huh? I was so tired all the time. I can't imagine how it is being pregnant with another child to still have to take care of!
