DIY Scooter Basket Inspiration

Retro Style Scooter Moped

Meet Creamsicle!

Scooter Repair

Mechanic-dressmaker at work.

I officially know way more about carburetors and fuel pumps than a seamstress should ever know.  In fact, I think I may now open a dressmaking/scooter repair shop.  Anyone wanna sell cupcakes off of a shabby chic school desk out front?

Creamsicle (my scooter above) is finally back on the road after three days of intense garage-based home repair by yours truly.  I didn’t always use the right tools or proper methods, but I can honestly say I enjoyed learning the ins and outs of how my lil cutie operates.  And I feel better knowing that I’ll never need to take it in for repairs; I’ll just make myself a pot of coffee and get a little dirty to the tunes of Edith Piaf instead.

So now all I need is an Amelia Earhart style helmet and to craft a DIY flower basket, crate trunk, and coffee cup holder!  Here is the inspiration I’ll be drawing from for these near-future garage projects:
