In a recycling mood today - I began with the skirt from a sundress I bought at a jumble sale, the lid of a CD spindle and two scrap CDs. I had to add some Bump from my stash but that is all.

The basket is in two sections, each was made ITH. Pockets first with some stipple quilting and then the sides with the pockets, lining and handle added ITH. I stitched the side seams on the sewing machine. The base is a scrap CD covered with bump and fabric, hand stitched to the rest. The inside base was made in the same way and pressed down onto some double sided tape.

That is a darling piece, and most of us "creative folk" would have those items on hand. Lol! I just gave hubby an empty dvd spindle and asked him what to do with it. I may have to ask for it back. Lol!

I've seen the spindle used as a Bagel server. Decorated with a paper doily on the bottom.
