Here's the GALLERY

Let’s all get organized and swap some fabric baskets (or buckets, boxes, or bins—any sort of free-standing fabric storage container)!

Here is a link to a list of ten tutorials for all of these options.  Beginner sewists might feel intimidated by this idea, but there is probably something in the list of tutorials that you could tackle.  Here’s another: Square-bottomed canvas bucket.  I also posted a tutorial on my blog for the baskets in the picture above. You don't have to use any of these tutorials or patterns, though.  If you have a link not included here, share it with us below!

Details of swap:
--You will craft one fabric storage container, using any pattern or design, PLUS one small crafted item to suit your partner’s tastes.  
--You will have a little over 3 weeks to craft, from 2/11/12 to 3/6/12.
--You have creative freedom to use any fabric, any embellishment, any technique you want to make your fabric basket and the extra; just be sure it is something your partner will like, by looking through her wists or pinterest, and questionnaire.
-- Please post in this thread (or the gallery thread) at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.

*PLEASE READ THIS!*
- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important.  Please stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.
- HAVE FUN!

I just signed up as well!  I already see recent partners are here!  Yippee - fun looking swap!!   Cheesy

AND - Just to maybe get a jump start on this swap, I bought the two kinds of Pellon needed for the basket(s), this past weekend at Joann's - well, I had coupons that were about to expire, so why not!!  I also treated myself and bought a new (little) rotary cutter and blades - my friend swears by the skinny one.  I'm all ready, set, GO!!!!   Cool

Ha, ha!!! I bought the pellon too this weekend at Joann's with my soon to be expiring coupons! Great minds think alike!!! That is too funny... only I treated myself to some yummy fabric to add to my stash in stead of a cutter.... although I was tempted with the Olfa's on sale!

Oh, boy, I am seriously considering this swap.  I love these fabric baskets, but I have a somewhat busy month for work. 
Ok, I just made a deal with myself. Smiley  If I finish the current project I am working on before sign-ups close I will join this swap.  This way I won't feel so stressed.
Guess I better get sewing! Smiley

I totally forgot about this swap! At the moment I'm swap-maxed out, and not sure I need another basket in my apartment... however, I just saw a basket pattern at a local quilt shop on Saturday that got me all excited to do your basket with the cool modifications her pattern had. If my Tote swap gets feedback in time I'll try joining here. If not, then I'll just do a craftalong with you guys Smiley

CMB - yes, I have to admit - great minds do think alike, but so do cuckoo ones too!!  I confess - I bought yummy fabrics on Thursday night - we have one of our Joann's stores that was going to close out, they liquidated their inventory (I got stuff on sale-deep discounts!), and then they decided to stay open, so they are ordering all new inventory!!  I had to (HAD TO!!!) get some fabric that was brand-spanking new on the shelves - a lot of the bolts still had plastic wrap.  It was all 30% off - NEW FABRIC!!!  I love fabric!   Cheesy
