Fabric-Covered Basket.

I covered the basket in a fabulous rose and lilac fabric- I wish I bought more!

I added gingham details... pretty, huh?

And now it's filled with my WIPs, well, just a few of them! I told you I just can't focus ;))

I so enjoyed using these fabrics, that I plan on making some matching pretties... even if I don't have a lilac room at the moment (but I would love to!). Maybe in the future, when I'll have my English cottage in the coutryside... a girl can dream, right?
Have a great day,
Monica x.
