A gift

I have probably said before but, Roseanne and Myself usually make each other something for Christmas and for our Birthday's (both in May), and generally we are quite busy at both of those times, so we always swap our gift a month or so later.

I had planned to make her one of these baskets for SO long (I even borrowed her book for the pattern hahaha), and I have had the fabrics to make them all for AGES too!
I made her close her eyes while I put it in front of her with the camera ready.........
Now, she is pretty happy..... So she should be, she nagged and nagged about me making her one (and she reckons I nag!!)

So, all together I have made 3 of these.... SO far!!


The inside of her basket:


I took a pic on the weekend of mine and her's together sitting on my new bench seat:



These baskets are SO cute! I actually have another cut out and half sew together.... Wonder who that could be for!
I will pop back tomorrow and share a pic of what Roseanne made for me..... I LOVE it! Or pop over to her blog, I am sure she will post a pic!

Hi Sarah,

What stabiliser did you use for the inside? I never know what to choose.

So cute!! They are heaps bigger than I thought they'd be! I've only seen one sitting alone in a photo... not in proportion to anything! Very cute!!

Sheila said...

I just looked back at your first post with the bag where you say who the designer is - and I have her book!!!
Now I can definitely make one! With handles like yours :)
