  1. I sorted my stuff and decided which things I wanted which of the three colors.  I heated up my Rit Dye and water mixes (this time I estimated because I wasn’t worried about what the shades came out like) and dipped the baskets in the dyes.  At the same time I dipped the canvas cutouts (from the mixed media section in the store) and the leftover rope from the first project (Apple Box of Candy).

  3. When it was dry, I stitched on some of my Laura Kelly buttons from my licensed color palette collection with Buttons Galore.  I LOVE these buttons because they are assorted sizes and shapes in every color and they also go through a process that gives them slightly different shades so they are super fun to work with.  I used embroidery floss from Coats and Clark in coordinating colors and Fiskars for cutting.

  4. Wah – La!  Baskets that are bright, fun and filled with some of my favorite things.  Looking at them makes me want to break out and sing “These are a few of my favorite things…” from The Sound of Music.
