Zip, Divide it! Basket sew along!


Welcome to the Zip, Divide it sew along blog post! This is the place where you can find all the information about this event.

I love this basket pattern, it's such fun to sew through the steps and see the item come together.

As well as being pretty, it's also very practical and makes a great gift/hamper basket. I am planning on making a couple during this sew along and I cannot wait to see all your baskets too!
