French Style Hessian Boxes

I've been busy painting and also working with my business consulting clients in the last couple of days. It's a juggle sometimes.  I've almost finished the beautiful walnut French extension table and chairs and am hoping to be able to share it in the next few days.

Two of my friends (a mum from school and my next door neighbour) have had little baby boys born last week.  Both boys were born around 35 weeks so they are very tiny but both are doing well.  I saw my friend from school's baby yesterday and he is perfect, just like a little doll. My 8 year old daughter is even more clucky than I am.  Once she realised I'm not about to have more kids, she's now full of excitement about having her own baby - let's hope it's in about 20 years time....

As little gifts I made these hessian boxes and filled them with clothes, nappies and goodies.

These boxes are great for storing items on a baby's change table but would also work well for storing items in the bathroom (loo paper, hand towels, lotions) or even holding items in the kitchen. They are plastic lined and fold flat for posting.  I will be selling them on my for sale page.  $AUD15 each.  there will be several designs available.

Dimensions are: 23cm L * 23cm W * 23cm H
Natural Fibre : Jute
Folds flat when not in use.

The photo above makes it look a little wonky but they are very square (or cubed).  I will take better photos later but I can't find the battery charger for my Canon so these are taken with my iPhone.  #ineedtotidyup
