Noodlehead Divided Basket

by Julie Hirt

For whatever reason I had never purchased two of my favorite patterns that are out there; Noodlehead’s Divided Basket and Super Tote.  When I spotted a 3 pack of Noodlehead patterns on Massdrop a few weeks ago it was a no brainer.

Here is my first attempt at the Divided Basket.

An IKEA opened up nearby by a few weeks ago –  that alone is worth a blog post, I was super excited.  They have some fabrics available but I’m sad our location doesn’t carry Britten Nummer. I’ve been lusting after it for like a year.

Well, I wasn’t about to leave without SOME kind of fabric so I picked up enough Lillivi (exterior print) and Ditte (blue) to make the Divided Basket.

The Lillivi is home decor weight so I didn’t use the fusible fleece, only the sturdy interfacing.

I’m really happy with how it turned out and I will definitely be making more.  It’s a great size to store all kinds of crap.

Easily holds several skeins of yarn so it would be perfect to store some knitting or crochet projects, the pocket is great to toss in some hooks and scissors.

Surprisingly, I didn’t buy much from my IKEA trip – I really just like looking at the little odds and ends.  I did buy this Kullar thermos which I LOVE more than I should and we decided to give the Dignitet Cable System a try.

I’ve seen a few people online use it to take photos of quilts and figured if the cable can hold the weight of a full quilt, surely it would work for mini’s.  I absolutely hate putting holes in walls (what if you don’t like the picture and move it, then you have a big hole…) so this works perfect. I can change things out on a whim and no holes (except the ones used to set up the cables).

Well, that’s it for today.

  1. Lucky Girl having an IKEA so close! that fabric looks awesome as the divided basket exterior. Looks like the home dec weight works well for the pattern, I made one out of quilting cotton a while back and didn’t use fleece, I wish I would have because it’s super floppy. Oh well, live and learn right!

  2. You know – the problem with the pattern is they clearly didn’t name it right. It’s a crap basket for sure! hahaha!

    It is pretty awesome, I need to try my hand at something like this one day. When I start ticking things off the list..

  3. Girl, do you need me to mail you some Britten Nummer? Ours has it and I’m occasionally tempted but the fabric is so cheap and thin I can’t bring myself to get it!
