Fabric Easter Basket {Moda Bake Shop Recipe}

Saw this adorable fabric basket pattern two years ago and thought "hey! That's cute. How hard could it be?" Let me just start by saying I love to sew and I rarely get angry when sewing, but chica, hand sewing six yards of fabric covered piping together, by hand, is FOR THE BIRDS. Yours truly began this project the Sunday before Easter. With pipping and fabric in hand I sewed together the strips of fabric from a Moda Scrap Bag that my friend Angie gave me and began wrapping the piping. Two hours later I had seven yards of fabric wrapped piping and DOUBT that I'd ever finish the project loomed in the back of my mind. Tuesday evening I pulled it out to begin hand sewing it together. About 30 minutes later I was FINSIHED. DONE. Not complete, mind you, but FINISHED. No way in the world was I going to finish the basket before Easter, so I placed everything neatly in a ziplock bag and put it in the box marked "things to give away."

Friday afternoon my mom came over and asked how the fabric basket was coming along. I sheepishly pulled the ziplock bag out of the box and told her I was DONE. After showing her the tedious process of HAND stitching the sucker she suggested hot glue. UREKA!!!!!! And there you have it, 45 minutes later we had a finished, ready for Easter, Fabric Easter basket. Ta Da. Enjoy looking at these people, because THIS blog will never feature a project like this ever again.
