Yippee Fabric Baskets!

I am not one to start little mini projects, but I am always envious of those who create cute little goodies.  Jumping into the Goodie swap was really my way of forcing myself to give smaller projects a try.  Well, thank goodness I did because I am in love with this little one! 


Using another tutorial from Pink Penguin, I made this little fabric basket for my Goodie Swap partner.  I really hope she likes it as much as I do.  I used pieces of charms from the Rainbow Charm Swap.  I think they look at home here.


The lining is one of my favorite print, but I have problems finding a quilt pattern that allows for such a large print.  So, it remains on the top of my stash pile where I continue to love it.  Using it in this project was perfect.


Well, Swap Partner, I truly hope you like this little one as much as I do :)

Hi,
Love your basket. I featured your post here, http://quilting.craftgossip.com/?p=11452.

Great idea to challenge yourself to make smaller projects. These can be very satisfying between longer quilting projects.

Warmly,

I found this tutorial last summer and I think I made at least 20 of them. I started with red white and blue fabric and filled the baskets with paper napkins and plastic utensils for a couple of picnics I was invited to. Then I made a few in Halloween fabrics and filled them with candy. Then Christmas, you get the picture.
Her Bento box bag is another great tutorial, so easy to follow. I have used it to make several purses that I've blogged about. selinaquilts.blogspot.com stop by and take a look.
