Bike basket number 2 ...

... was made by special request of Dinoboy who liked the idea of a bike basket very much after seeing Missy Moo's. The bike basket is from this tutorial by Anna on the Noodlehead blog.

We looked through my fabric stash together and found this old fat quarter print of colourful cartoon dinosaurs. I remember making Dinoboy a pillowcase from this fabric when he was about 2 years old (he will be 8 in a couple of months). We found a plain blue cotton fabric for the lining and a vibrant green batik print scrap for the binding and the tab at the back.



It's roomy enough for a drinks bottle and a fluff companion, with boy treasures like a few Pokemon trading cards and the odd small rubber bouncy ball hidden inside too.







Dinoboy is pretty pleased with the bike basket. Thanks for the tutorial, Anna!
