I've blogged the process here.

Oh my gosh! That work-basket appears in my copy of Civil War Ladies: Fashions and Needle-Arts of the Early 1860's, and I've added it to my "to make" list, except that I intend to make a variation where the structured portion is (possibly) square/rectangular and has a lift-away lidded insert, so that the insert can be the sort of mother ship of sewing kits and a couple projects in progress can be kept above it. Yours is so lovely, I don't think I could make anything remotely as pretty!

It's far to tidy! Mine would be so loaded with junk that I'm working on or "might" work on that you could never see the bottom.  Cheesy  Very pretty - you've been a busy girl this winter.
