Rabbit & Chicks Fabric Basket

With the cross stitch worked for this last Easter, this lovely little piece has languished long enough . . . I thought it was time to do something with it.

But what?

Well, this Easter I decided to make a larger version of the fabric basket I made back in about 2009 . . .

This one stands about 9" tall and about 8" wide, so should make a good little project bag! I absolutely love the French Blue linen and the custard coloured stitching - a colour combination I've wanted to work with for a while now.

And what's more, I'm really pleased to have finally put this little cross stitch to good use. Not much point just having it sit in a box any longer . . .

I find there's something quite satisfying about making something with purpose. And this is one bag that I'm sure will serve it's purpose well!
