  4. This is amazing! Can you tell me, and pardon my sewing ignorance... what kind of needle do you use to get through all those layers and cording? I want to make sure I have the right ingredients before I attempt this! Thanks so much.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, I SO do! Something else I'm going to have to add to my make list!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Okay! So I copy and pasted the whole tutorial into my "blogger projects to do" file!!!! Now I just need a honey bun and I'm going to get busy!
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOVE it! Is there anything you can't do? So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  34. OK Vanessa this is totally random, and I found out about you in a crazy way. My friend Jessica is the one who won the honey bun giveaway and she put a link to your blog on hers, so I checked it out. I'm inspired by your energy, and i couldn't stop reading your entries. After scanning a few posts from way back when, I saw you live in Loa. No way! I thought. Could that be Loa, Utah??? My parents are Don and Marsha C., my mom being my quilting/sewing inspiration. In last year's post about the fair, you put a photo of her quilt...the one you didn't know who made it (with the random stars and a mariners compass in the middle). Felicia has also quilted a top for me too. I love your photos of Loa...I used to spend summers there when my grandparents lived there (in the same house where my parents are). I miss it. Small world. I hope I can meet you next time I'm visiting. My mom has a quilt retreat every September. You should come!! Sorry for the long comment - nice to "meet" you!

  35. I had an easter basket like this when I was a little girl. Until your blog I wasn't able to ever find instructions on how to make these! your blog rocks! (and the moda bake shop!) thanks for bringing back such a great memory!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like it! So cute and colorful.

  37. omg vanessa.
    see what happens when i stay in bed sick all day...i miss things like this!!!

    you amaze me girl!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are so TALENTED! What a fun project to do!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I made a basket just like that at girls camp when I was a beehive! Awwe the memories!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. oh my gosh....i use to make these with my mom when i was litte. i totally forgot about doing them. i love them! you're awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Um okay, V. I looked at the tutorial and that basket seems to be extraordinarily labor intensive. Like I was getting all shaky just watching you. Sewing together 4,400 little squares and then handsewing your brains out?!
    Don't get me wrong here, I love the basket, but you've completely overestimated my abilities.
    Maybe for my sake could you just do some kind of tutorial for a nice bow to put on a store-bought Easter basket? Or just show pictures of yourself eating candy or something?
    You blow my mind. And intimidate me more than any other person on the planet.

    ReplyDelete
  42. OK, I hope you don't get vertigo from the pedestal I've put you on!!

    You are so inspiring!! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  45. I have seen hot pads, for a table, made with this method, but not a basket. Neat.
