I love this basket! I did do a few things differently (don't we all?). Because I had the Pellon ShirTailor left from the diaper bag posted below, I used that, plus the fusible fleece, for the main basket pieces - I really like the heft and stiffness of that combo. I also interfaced pretty much every other pattern piece. I really wanted this basket to stand up under the rigors of baby-changing :-)
I did have a bit of confusion over the instructions for inserting the divider (probably my fault), so I just did my own thing and it turned out perfect! I used Bungle Jungle by Tim and Beck for Moda Fabrics. Actually, my DIL, Autumn, has a thing for elephants, so I have been "collecting" elephant fabrics for months. I let her choose from my elephant collection and she picked these. I think they are perfect for Baby Cummings :-)
|I used the larger scale print for the pocket, against a multi-dot, and a yellow jelly roll strip for contrast.|

|She chose the blue-on-white elephants for the interior.|
Now all we need is Baby Cummings!
