My new sewing basket I made!

My sister had a pattern for this sewing basket and we both decided to make one. They turned out so darn cute. I picked out some fabric I had laying around the house for projects such as this. I used alot of my brights for this one. This is the inside with colorful pockets for my sewing accessories.

In this picture is the flower pincushion and a little heart shaped scissor holder.
I really love this basket, but the pattern did not include handles. I'm thinking of adding large buttons on the sides and making a braided handle that will also be removable.
My sister took her basket to the shop to display before I had a chance to take pictures of her basket. Her color combination was very cute she used oranges, green, yellow, light purple, pink. She said she would email them to me so I can post them.

Your sewing basket is so cute! The bright colors are so nice and cheery. It would be nice to have one to keep your latest sewing project in, so that you can grab it and take it with you if you're going somewhere that you have to sit around and wait!
Happy 4th!
