At our December meeting, we’ll be swapping handmade fabric baskets or buckets of our choice filled with $15 worth of goodies. Make sure to bring your gift wrapped to heighten the suspense.
Feel free to use the basket pattern of your choice – The Sewing Loft has a great pattern round-up with finished pics of each basket. The free bucket pattern we sent via e-mail can also be found here: Fabric Bucket Pattern. If you’d like to make the ever popular “One Hour Basket”, the pattern (by Hearts and Bees) can be purchased for $1 on Craftsy. The info page on Craftsy has pictures of just about every variation you can imagine! If anyone is not a member of Craftsy or has a problem trying to buy the pattern, please let us know.
