Olivia’s Baskets

I am so excited to finally share this pattern with you!  It has been a long and exciting process to release my very first pattern, but it is at the printers as we speak and will be arriving very shortly.

Yippee! I crafted these sweet fabric baskets for her nursery.  They are made with Soft and Stable, which offers a perfect construction, and, most importantly, a design that's safe for babies. The baskets on the cover feature Lella Boutique's fabulous new line, Sugar Pie, that will be available in...
