My guild has a tradition of doing a small blind swap item every year at our “Hanukkah/ Christmas/Solstice Social” and this year we’re giving folks a choice of two baskets to make.* Offering choices means providing a sample of course so Kari and Stacie are making a large basket and I volunteered to make a wee one. The pixie basket from Fabric Mutt to be precise.
I cut out fabric yesterday but hey, pictures or it didn’t happen, so you’ll have to trust me on that. Today I made up one for me to demo/keep and one to trade in a month.
Ta-done! It measures a mere 3″ wide by 4″ long and 2″ high.
And in use already.
True story: I have been looking for a small basked or jar to stash the squares, selvedges, strips, and scraps from the week. I was pretty excited when I realized I could just make myself a basket!
Also exciting is the orange scissor fabric and the contrast strip are both scraps from two friends.
*if there are any guild members reading this (HI!) please act surprised on Thursday okay?
