Basket of Joy

 just about once a month Baskets ofJoy posts a free pattern and this pattern I got several months ago called Sunflower tote.  It is no longer available free but she has a kit available.  My version is little different since I used  blue and made these kitty and fish charms my self using air dry clay called Clayzee its soft when wet but when it dries it turns into rock like consistency. The company has different types of clay clayzee kids and I'm sure you can find it at your local craft shop or Meijer if you have one! that's where I found them at Meijer.  I got the Rock one and the Pottery one.  I haven't used the Pottery one yet but the way the Rock one turned out I'm sure it'll be pretty cool as well.  After it dried I painted it with acrylic craft paint, strung it with twine and tied it to the handle. cute right? 

Charms, buckles and buttons can be quite expensive so if you can find the air dry clays you can make your own charms and buckles, save some money and have a one of a kind basket charm! 

make sure to visit  often so you won't miss the free pattern! and when you get there don't forget to print it out!
