A Birthday & A Stash Basket

Today is my dear little sister's birthday! Well she's only one year younger than me but she'll always be little to me!

I wanted to make her a little something. She's been asking me to make her an apron but I just haven't found the perfect pattern so instead I made a great sacrifice and cut into my delicious Elephant Canvas fabric JUST FOR HER. I knew she would love it (and in grey no less!).



It ended up being pretty perfect because I had gotten her this adorable elephant necklace at American Eagle. She's into "middle eastern" stuff.



I gave it to her this morning and she wore it to lunch :-)

Oh and look at this adorable TEAL crocheted stash basket I made for my yarn!


I got the pattern from here. Pin it! Granted I still need to make about four more of these to house all my yarn but it's a start!

True Blood tonight, don't forget!! Have a great evening.

Linking up here.

  11. Such a great idea. I have got to do something with all my yarn. I have a basket that I don't use all that often, kinda my play around with yarn and my daughter drags it everywhere so it's a giant mess!
