Basket Liners for Baby's Nursery


I'm making new basket liners for 6 baskets that will be in the baby's room. Turning them from boy/blue to girlie/flowers. I love the fabric, and it matches the bedding so well....Can't wait to post pictures of everything all finished. I hope I can get it all done in time before "Baby Girl Johnson" arrives.

I used the basket liner tutorial from Running with Scissors. I didn't cut my existing liner, but traced it onto paper and then used the paper pattern to cut out my new fabric.

My secret to saving fabirc: The ties don't go all the way around the basket.
They just go about 1/2" into the hem.  It still has enough tension to keep the liner on the basket,
but saved tons of FABRIC and TIME.

Top stitched around the top of the basket for a more professional look, and to strengthen the seam.

Oh so pretty! I really like how it turned out!

My Little Helper

Owen has been 'helping' me in the office as I sew his Quiet Book and do other various crafts. Look at him go! He unrolls the paper and then uses SCISSORS for the FIRST TIME. Then, he gets out his coloring supplies and creates a little masterpiece. He likes to show me his coloring/drawing when he is done. I always tell him what wonderful work he has done.

He is even playing with a few completed quiet book pages - they are a hit!

Happy Boy Owen! Playing In The Backyard

Owen is always happy! We have so much fun together and he is so sweet.

In these pictures we are playing in the backyard on the hammock that Kendall and Kira gave us years ago - we love this thing! Owen always wants to be outside, no matter the weather. I like how our dog tries to get close to the hammock, even though its swinging all over the place. He and Owen play really good together, and what a blessing that has been.

Dear Tip,
Thank you for being such a great dog and putting up with Owen swinging into you, crawling on you, and pulling your hair. We couldn't ask for a sweeter family dog than you!

Check out my purple flowers in the background - aren't they pretty? Of course I had to take a close up picture.


Thank you Heavenly Father for such a BEAUTIFUL world.
