Ingrid is not a name I come across very often,
so when I spotted a blog called Ingrid's blogg I had to take a look.
I love the blog that I found
there was a photo of a fabric basket for bread...
that I had been wanting to make for ages.

So thanks Ingrid for inspiring another Ingrid to get sewing again.
If you would like to try to make one too, then I used the fab pattern on Pink Penguin.
Ayumi is such a generous blogger and shares her ideas for your personal use.
I made a simple version of Ayu's with no piecing or stiffening.
This red, white and black IKEA fabric is just the perfect weight to hold itself nicely on the table.
It is reversible too, so twice as much fun
Below is my first attempt in linens and though I love the petit brioche fabric,
it does not have the same body,
so it does not do quite the same job
as the IKEA one does.
I love to encourage everyone to make it their own -
so here is my little logo... a black pompom on a red tab.
When you make your basket be sure to add your own mark.
It could be a printed label you have produced especially for you,
or you could improvise like I did and come up with something more original.
Whatever you decide, don't forget to add something!
If you need more detailed instructions for this little creation let me know in the comments.
I'd be happy to do that for you.
Think I need to go bake some bread to fill them... well maybe stop at the baker tonight,
save baking for next time.
