A Tisket, A Tasket - A{nother} Little Fabric Basket!

A week  or so ago I mentioned what great gifts these little fabric baskets make.  I am really having fun making them.  This one is for Leona's Fabric Basket Swap.  I made the basket a few weeks ago with selvages from Anna Maria Horner's LouLouThi that were passed from one daughter to the other, and then to me.  I've been having a blast with them.

I filled the basket with an assortment of goodies, including some fabric, zippers, thread, a decorated dish towel and crocheted dish cloth, an apron pattern, and a cute little Mary Engelbrite journal.  It was fun - and a little challenging - to think of things to fill it with.  Normally, I might have added candy, but this is Florida, and it is June, and it just didn't seem like a good idea.  (Sorry, partner!)

Still, I hope my partner enjoys the basket despite its candy-less state.
