Recycled paper basket

 I made and gave this recycled paper basket to my daughter for Valentine's Day.  I'm showing some Denyse Schmidt fabrics and remnants from Joann's in it, but for her I put in a scarf, shirt, and a shirt and new sneaks for Ezra, none of which I took pics of.
 Tara posted the tutorial link for how to make it on her blog,, but here it is if you want to check it out:

Check out these adorable Babushka ornaments:
A friend at work has dubbed me "Babushka!"  She came up with that title when I was searching for a name for Ezra (my grandson), to call me.  Seeing as I am Irish, I was looking on the internet for what Irish babes call their grandmothers.  I couldn't find anything I could pronounce, for one thing, so she came up with Babushka!  It makes me smile every time she sends me an email addressed to Babushka!  Ha!  I believe it's the Russian name for grandmother.  If I was Russian I would embrace that name, but, alas, I am not, so for now I am Gram, unless Ezra comes up with his own handle for me!
And on that note, I will bid you good night/good day, wherever you may be!

  1. Your gift basket is cool, Jodi. I'm sure Tara was tickled for you to make one for her. Do you own any Babushka dolls- these are really cute!


I love to hear from you!
