Warning: Here comes a picture post!
Do you guys remember this regular, ole picnic basket?
I am in L-O-V-E with this ribbon! It has hedgehogs!!! I lined everything with this and even made a little bow for the top.
I am uber excited to fill this baby up and use it like crazy! I’m so happy that it turned out good (IMO). I am not a DIY-er so that just makes this all the more special to me. Also, I am working on making a new matching pincushion that looks like a hedgehog…. So far, it looks like he’ll be so ugly he’s cute…I can live with that! Im also making a matching thread caddy (because we all know I need another!)
In the end, I used 4 fat quarters, 1 1/2 spools of ribbon, 2 cans of spray paint, a whole bunch of hot glue, and the basket. I would estimate it at costing $40 total. So maybe its not the cheaper way to go, but now I have a basket that’s 100% me, and that’s priceless. (I’m sure someone that’s a better bargain hunter would be able to make it for a lot cheaper.)
