I wrote about my bright yellow cruiser bike a couple of weeks back and, to my surprise, you lovely blog readers were quite into it. It seems that bikes are quite popular in crafty circles… hooray!
Anyway, here’s a pic of it. I bought a new basket (a little birthday treat) to go on the front which I LOVE. It clips in and out and has a handle so I can ride over to the fruit market unclip it, fill it with goodies and then clip it back on for the ride home. I’m sure I look quite ridiculous with a basket full of fruit and veg but then I already look ridiculous being on the bike in the first place so what have I got to lose?
I’m planning on creating a lining for it out of Paula Brass’s Summer Soiree Centrepiece. I don’t normally go for floral/girly type fabric but I thought this worked in well with the turqoise and butterflies on the bike. I’ll be freestyling it without a pattern which could work well or could be a complete disaster. Rest assured either way you’ll get to see it in the next couple of weeks!
