The Noodlehead Divided Basket pattern has been popping up all over the internet, and as soon as I saw it I thought of about 6 different places where I needed one in our house. It also seemed like a fabulous way to use up different prints I've been hoarding which are too stiff to use for garments. I've made two so far; the first one has a Kokka apple print on the outside (from Tessuti, way back) and a Hello Kitty canvas on the inside (from Nippori in Tokyo, even further back. Like, 2006. And webbing handles, also from Nippori). It lives on the top shelf of Milla's wardrobe now, and keeps her socks separate from her tights.
The second one I made has the same apple print on the inside and a very stiff denim on the outside (left over from my Wiksten Tulip skirt). This time I made rainbow striped fabric handles, and did a pocket on the outside using a little of the apple print and the same striped fabric as the handles to trim it. This one was a baby shower present, so I popped a book and rattle from Shorties and a couple of baby supplies from the chemist in there. Hopefully the basket will be useful when the small person arrives for holding change table supplies or toys.
It's a great pattern, with very clear instructions and the finished basket is very pleasing. I already have a little stack of fabrics picked out to make some more.
