One of the first things I do each morning is walk around the house and open up all of the blinds and curtains. And I mean ALL of them. January and February are not my favorite months - mostly because the days are so short and the sunshine is fleeting. To help with the lack of sunshine, I try to bring in plenty of bright colors to my home...and take a vitamin D pill ;)
This week I made this fun and easy basket to use in my kitchen. It didn't take me long at all and I love that yellow!
First of all, here's the link to the tutorial I followed: One Hour Basket tutorial. But I really want to talk about this cheery, bright fabric that I used. Our January has been so gray and loooong - and these fresh lemons are just what the doctor ordered. Can't you almost smell the lemony scent?
These are from a line called Tutti Fruitti designed by Maude Asbury for Blend Fabrics. In the line there's also these fun watermelons...
...and these cherries. I have plans for these cherries!
But it was the lemons that were calling to me the other day. (You can find Tutti Fruitti fabrics online at Hawthorne Threads)
Now back to the One Hour Basket - I had seen plenty of them around instagram and I love that it's a free tutorial. It's designed by Kelbysews and you can find her free downloadable tutorial here on Craftsy. It really did take me about an hour to make and I love the generous size. Fabric baskets and bins like this are so handy for storing all sorts of things.
