A Nautical Divided Basket

You may be sensing a theme here. Several weeks ago, before I started the Nautical Baby Quilt, I made this nautical divided basket. It has now been officially gifted along with the quilt (I’m an aunt again!), so I’m finally sharing.

This basket is a pattern by Anna over at Noodlehead. I always give myself a little pat on the back after I make something in 3D, and this is no exception!

The fabric is all from the Daysail line by Bonnie & Camille. How cute are those sailboats at the text print? I have to apologize, as I have no idea where I got my webbing for my handles! It has been sitting in my stash for years, and I was so excited to finally have the perfect project for it.

This basket fits a lot. I loved how Anna used it as a baby shower/welcoming gift and I did the same. I included diapers, diaper cream, nose spray, a bath toy, burp cloths and swaddling blankets. It’s a pretty handy size. I could see it being used on a changing table, or even stored in a family room for easy diaper changing access. I definitely plan on making more of these divided baskets in the future!

    i bought the Daysail with no idea what I wanted to do with it, maybe a quilt. But this is a really cute idea.

    Beautiful! I had a friend tell me that of all the newborn gifts she received, the basket I made (love Anna’s pattern!) was the item she used every day!

    I love the basket! What an adorable gift! I am so inspired by this basket and the tote bag you recently made but I don’t quite have the sewing skills to tackle one yet. One day…

    Faith, Your Nautical divided basket is so nice. 3D indeed! I love your embellished divider w/the green stripe.
    I too have made many of Anna’s divided baskets, great for hand towels; for a new home/bathroom/kitchen gift.
