Look What I Made!

 I've been thinking of making some pretty color coordinated scrap baskets.  I was planning making them from scraps of course.  First though, before making a bunch of scrap fabric with strings and crumbs, I thought I'd work on a prototype.  I found this cute fairy fabric in Mom's stash.  She wasn't a quilter, but she had some fabric that she used for crafts, and my sister brought it to me when she came to visit.
 I used some foam board in the bottom for stability, but the sides fold down for storage.  I might try foam board in the front and back.
I measured it so that three will fit across the little shelves that Kurt put in the closet in my sewing room.  Now I just need two more to fill up the shelf!
