Remember the 80's, when suddenly it was cool to wear green and purple together? I missed the memo, therefore I was not cool. I wore hand-me-down brown cords (worn smooth on the thighs by their previous owner) and a Fonzie t-shirt. On average 3 times/week. I'm sure my mother was mortified, but I don't remember her saying anything about it.
Anyhoo, enough about my fashion revelations, here is a cute fabric basket that I made for a birthday gift. D's friend requested candy. And lots of it. One needs something pretty to present the candy in, right? This sweet fabric basket was made using Ayumi's ace tutorial over at Pink Penguin out of Central Park and Farmer's Market fabrics.
I still had a roll of cellowrap leftover from school auction baskets last year, so we decided to go all out with some tissue lining as well.
Rumour has it the birthday girl received a year's worth of candy. Maybe we all should have thrown in a few bucks for the dentist!
