FANCY NEEDLEWORK. A BABY'S BASKET. Such weird and wonderful ideas one reads about sometimes for making .home-made furniture, and only now and again does one strike a notion that is really good. This idea, for a baby's basket I saw in an English periodical, and I thought it very easy and practical, and just the thing for mothers in the country, who do not wish to get an expensive bas ket up from the city. Every young mother is not blessed ' with an abun dance of this world's goods, and so many a baby has to go without the basket which holds all his little toilet requirements so compactly. This basket which I am describing to you will prove just as convenient and look as pretty as the most elabor ate and expensive to be bought in Syd ney, and will only cost you a small out lay in time and money ; in fact, 1 think it should look prettier to the maker, as there is such a satisfaction about any thing which you have really succeeded in making with your own hands. (See Fig. 1.) The foundat...
