Basic Grey!

Greetings and Happy Wednesday! Today we have a little Basic Grey inspiration for you from Designer Teri Berrios and from my Mother-In-Law! Isn't it funny how the whole family is creative?

My mother-in-law works wonders with the sewing machine! She used some of the Basic Grey Origins Fabric and made a gorgeous tote for me! Take a look:

Origins Tote by Margie Anderson

Margie used the Basic Grey Origins Fat Quarter Bundle and a pattern to make this tote. Isn't this just too much fun! She put lots of pockets on the inside for me. I love the pop of yellow against the dark green. Just wait until you see what else Margie made with Basic Grey Fabric!

Now let's take a look at what Designer Teri Berrios made with the Basic Grey Pyrus collection:
