Fabric Flower Basket

Hello!! I hope you have had a wonderful Easter. We enjoyed the warm, sunny weather and worked a lot in the garden.

Maybe you have seen this little banner in my sidebar

The idea for this swap was to make a basket of 15,5 by 6,5 inch, 5 inch deep. The swap is secret, so I had to go with the preferences which were given by the lady I have to send it to. And she didn’t give any. No colours, no techniques, nothing! And she also doesn’t have a flickr-account or a blog, so I had absolutely nothing to work with. So I decided to make a basket with flowers. Inspired by all the lovely flowers outside. Thinking of it, there are a lot of flowers in my work lately!

 

Putting the bag together was a lot of fun. It is small enough to have a result quite quick.
