Basket Cover: January
I admit it. I have an addiction. To books. Children's books in particular. I have hundreds of them, and I'm not even exaggerating. Luckily, my son's addiction is even more addictive than mine. To the tune of reading 30+ books a day.
I need a way to organize these books. There's too many to have out all the time. Especially since my little guy could read the same book 30 times in one day. I had all of our Christmas books organized in a basket that I took out just for Christmas. After Christmas I picked up that basket cover (that I did not make) with the books in it to store for next year. And now there's a handy basket just wishing for a new set of books.
One of my crafty "to dos" is to improve my embroidery skills. Remember this book I got? It has oodles of embroidery stitches I'm itching to stitch. I decided to use the same basket, use the store bought basket cover to make a pattern, whip up extra covers and stitch away. Here's our winter books and our new basket cover, mama made:
It folds over the basket and ties on the side. Perfect, right? I only have 10 more months that I am aiming to make.
