Beginners Sewers Swap Piece 2! 'What I made'

The second person I had to sew for was Jotsmum for her little girl J 1 year old. She put her likes/dislikes down as- "she likes putting things in an out of any container, and clothes pegs
books and anything that belongs to Mummy" So I thought about it for a while and thought HMMM a fabric basket of some sort and some blocks so she can put them in and out of the basket......

So I googled and googled and found a tute for this basket and these blocks.......






The inside of the basket.........A little hint if anyone reading this is going to make one, the tute calls for closed cell foam and as I live in a small country town there is no place here to get foam so I got an exercise mat from Crazy Clarks the thin blue ones, and cut that up!!!!LOL!!!!



My first attempt at this basket came out way too small my second attempt came out way too big (and is now being used in my sewing room) so this was third time lucky......

What a great idea. This would be a fantastic present for a baby shower. You've done a great job!

I love this! Thinking outside the circle for the foam, I would never have thought of that. It really is the perfect present for a 1 year old. Did you buy dog toys from CC's for the squeakers??
