guest blogger: anna of noodlehead

so glad all of you are laughing at along with me on my misfortune.
i'll be writing the last part of my unfortunate events series later today to post for tomorrow. but for now here's a tutorial by the sweetest mid western gal i just met a couple weeks ago, my friend anna:


hello V & Co. friends, I'm Anna from Noodlehead!
I was so excited when Vanessa asked me to share a tutorial with you guys. I'm a mom to two little girls and got back into sewing when I realized how fun it was to sew for them (even if they don't like what a make them all the time).
My husband and I were doing some tune ups on my daughter's bike earlier this spring - you know, new tires, paint the handlebars, fix the seat, fun stuff. So, when we were out tire shopping I saw the cute bike baskets at the store. I was like "oh, we have to get her a basket, it would be so fun" and he's like "you should just make one". So here we go!





It's perfect to hold a water bottle, some bouncy balls, a necklace, maybe a stuff animal buddy you just can't leave home without!








There are so many cute details you can add to these Bike Buckets, so go on and get creative!!








Check out the full tutorial HERE at Noodlehead!








Thanks Vanessa for having me over, it was fun!

Oh my word, this is just what I need for my car (not on the front, though)--I've been looking for a trash can, but there is no room. This would fit just to the side of the glove box. thanks so much for the post.

So cute! I can't wait until my kids start riding bikes! Now I can make their bikes the cutest on the block!

Now THAT is seriously cute! I can't wait for my little beauty to ride a big girl bike in a few years. I will definitely be stashing this idea away to pull out and make.

So cute and totally great for my little 4 yr old son who is always carrying everything around with him. I might have to make one in camo for my 6 yr old boy to carry the ice cream money around!!!
