That was the case in the making what some might call an 'OverDoSue' embellished basket. This one inspired by my Mother's Sewing Box.
Her collection of buttons, thread, fabrics and sewing-stitching stuff was a part of my Sewing Memorabilia. I decided to share it with Mother's granddaughter who also sews. I knew it would become a treasured heirloom.
The basket is made from the same fabrics as "The Cotton Shirts Off Her Back" quilt...also gifted along with the basket. What fun I had going through her 'Button Box' which was a catch all for everything from buttons, beads, washers, bolts and screws. I stitched a variety of buttons around the basket top with a dangle ending in her thimble. Then I filled and continued to embellish it thusly....
Do you have an AtoZ Sewing Basket?
