Lulabelle & The Pixie Basket

Do you ever have those days, where you want to sew something (anything), but lack direction?

This was me yesterday. Husband was away on a trip and the kids were at school. The house was quiet and after finishing all of the morning jobs I had a few hours to sew. 

This Pixie Basket had been popping up all over Instagram. It's a cute pattern by Heidi of Fabric Mutt, released as part of the #QuiltNon2016 fun. 

I used a couple of prints from the Lulabelle range by Dodi Lee for Riley Blake Designs plus extra thin Ric-Rac to embellish. I quilted the layers with lovely a silvery perle 8 cotton.

This is quite an elegant range with some interesting prints (which would be great for fussy cutting). I can imagine a whole room filled with soft furnishings, created in this contemporary palette... or hexies. 

Can't go wrong with hexies, right?


  1. Cute pixie basket. Would love to make one too.

  2. Cute basket for threads and you're right, can't go wrong with hexies. :)
