Heart Basket

Heart Basket
Heart Basket,
originally uploaded by New England Quilter.
This sweet little basket was specially made as a Valentine's Day gift for someone special! I originally was just going to add loops for handles to this basket. However, after sewing the handles to the basket, I thought that the loops were a little too long. So, I turned the loops into hearts. To make the handles, I sewed two loops onto the basket - one on each side. Then I pinched the top of each loop together to form the heart, and then stitched where the pinch was located. So, my long handles turned into lovely hearts!

Because of you, I bought some clothesline. Maybe my scrap drawer will be emptied sometime soon!
