apple basket bag

At last! If I ever say to you, hey let me make you a basket bag. Don’t get too excited because it very well may take me over 2 months to make it. Sorry Amy! I think finally your long overdue package is ready to be sent out. See everyone on my ‘long overdue’ list — there is hope for you yet!

    how to attach it, well I just sew it on. not very clear huh? Alison has a tutorial up. I haven’t actually read through it but I’m sure it is wonderful
    and the basket I got at Pier 1

  32. it is perfectly adorable!

  33. ugh i love that fabric to pieces. the cutest summer bag EVER. how did you get it outside of japan? i did a goodle translate search of their website but it was stilly pretty broken up. if you could let me know that’d be awesome. i must have their alligator fabric!

  34. Great apple basket bag! So, the tutorial applies and you just changed it to apply to the the different shape of your basket from Pier 1? And, the basket was oval to start with? Very clever! I love it! Do you use heavier thread? What makes it secure enough to hold any weight? Thanks for your time.
