Happy Birthday to me...

...but no gifts to show you. It's too dark to take photos, and the UPS guy hasn't delivered the "main" gift yet.

We went to see this show this weekend. If you're in the Seattle area, GO! It was truly great.

Tonight we're going here for my birthday dinner. I LOVE this place!

My project for the weekend:
Basket liner
I've been bothered by all the bread sitting on the kitchen counter for a LONG time now, but haven't been able to find the right basket at the right price. When my mom and I were hunting for cups at the thrift store for the little tea posies, I found this basket for $2.99. The only problem - it was not the most attractive basket I had ever seen.
I searched high and low for a pattern or tutorial for a basket liner, but couldn't find anything, so lo and behold, Ms. Copycat had to design her OWN basket liner!
I'm very pleased with the result. The whole thing was made from one single rectangle of fabric. I'm trying to think of a way to create a tutorial that can be adapted for any basket size...

Please excuse all the capitals and exclamation marks. It's my BIRTHDAY and I'll be loud if I want to!

Pin It!

Happy Birthday! How funny that you are going to a Peruvian restaurant...I am reading your blog from Peru! And I must say we love, love, LOVE the food here! I will be interested to hear what foods you try! :) That basket liner is adorable! We are in the construction process on our house and now I can't wait for it to get finished...I already have some ideas for how I could use something like that in my kitchen and bathrooms! I have been lurking your site for awhile, but guess I am out in the open now..hehe! Love seeing all of your projects! Thanks for the ideas!
