This is what I received....
Holy cow was that ALOT of different fabric strips and one half yard of pink solid. Gulp!
I decided I would use as many of the strips as I could and make the basket itself pink. I tried piecing the strips together several different ways until I decided 2" strips diagonally worked best. Here are the strips pieced together.
This is how the basket turned out.
The next thing I made was a crisscross tissue holder. I didn't have enough of all of the fabrics so I pieced strips together to make it work... the inside is "lined" with different fabrics.
I was not at the meeting because I was in Kauai but here's a picture of BettePat when she received it.
This swap was so much fun, I look forward to more of these opportunities. Thanks for stopping by!
