Baby shower gift - Noodlehead Divided Basket

I finished my first Divided Basket.

I had heard that Noodlehead patterns were clear and easy to follow and I found that to be the case for the Divided Basket.

I'm planning an aqua and orange quilt for a gift for a friend and I thought a Divided Basket in those colours would be useful for all the bits and pieces you need with a newborn.

I'm really happy with how the basket turned out even though I could only find 1 inch webbing (the pattern asks for 1.5 inch). I used a zig zag stitch to make sure I caught the thinner webbing securely though in future I would use Peta's tutorial.

The only other change I made was to add an interfaced panel to the front pocket and to move the optional sewn line to split the pocket to the edge of the panel.

Now I need to pull some more fabric for my own basket.

If you plan to join in the sewalong remember to post your finished basket to #dividedbasketsewalong on Instagram by August 10th for the chance to win a $25 gift voucher kindly donated by the guest judge - Anna Graham of Noodlehead.
