Everyone has a basket around that could use some refreshing – it’s easy to update the liner following our instructions. Don’t forget Halloween’s just around the corner and baskets make great candy dishes or Trick or Treat bags.
Gone are my days of wearing an itty bitty teeny tiny yellow polka dot bikini – yet summer has arrived and the beach calls my name. But who really wants to shop for a new bathing suit? Today I’m going to share a quick and easy teekini tankini bikini (say that 10x fast!) that can be made with materials you already have on hand – two t-shirts, a pair of scissors, elastic, and a needle with thread.
Don’t you love this basket? Look closely; can you tell what it’s made of? Barb Lake, BERNINA at Fancyworks, Marissa, IL, recycled packing paper and stitched up a sturdy basket to use for displays. She told me, “I just couldn’t send all that good paper into the recycling bin!”
