Here are some pics of a gift basket I put together for a friend who has just moved into her own place. I wanted it to have a retro girly feel without being too nice (hence the Bettie Page bondage theme) - I bought 4 martini glasses, a set of three black silicone spatulas, photo coasters (into which I put bondage pics) and I made some cloth napkins (black and white with an iron on Bettie in the corner) and a reversible half-apron (using a modified version of april_cocair's circle skirt tutorial :http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=b51c7a0ff1038eefe6ff4fe3d4fd2850&topic=12439). I put everything together in a teal waste basket.

What do you think? Comments very much appreciated!!

Oh, that's awesome. Everything goes together so well, but isn't cookie-cutter at all. Love the napkins!! What a great housewarming gift!

Thanks for the compliments!

I found the photos online and printed them onto the Avery t-shirt transfer paper.

Thanks for the great feedback, everyone! I took the gift over to my friend's apartment last night and she was suitably impressed. I'm really happy it turned out to be such a hit! Who knew that homemaking (?) and bondage went together so well?!!  Wink

hahaha
 Cheesy

this one made me laugh my butt off

my bestfriend and i always make gifts for each other.  it's like the rule with us.

she is going to be moving into her first apartment (out of her parents house and she's 23!!) in a couple of months.  this is a GREAT housewarming gift. 

she loves the ocean and anything beachy--if i could find bondage fishies that'd be perfect!  Roll Eyes

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink
