It is Baby E's first Christmas,
and almost birthday.
I know she will receive a baby doll,
so I could not help myself and made a baby basket!
(not the actual doll, but the only baby left at home,
Miss C.'s days of dolls are long gone!)
I used this pattern from Made Every Day,
a well written pattern, and quite easy to follow.
Dana (from Made Every Day) was my inspiration for starting
this blog almost 9 years ago...
So yeah, I was happy to buy her pattern!
I used a pink/white/yellow and green striped fabric,
between a canvas and a regular weight cotton.
It has not too much pink as my sister did not want too much of it.
The lining is more pink, with large daysies.
For the interfacing, I used some iron-on foam, usually used for bag making.
It makes the basket stable but still very soft, perfect for a one year old.
In the basket, there are also a mattress and a pillow
made from the same lining fabric,
and a double sided blanket.
I hope she enjoys playing and carrying her baby doll
around with this sweet little basket.
