Great package fiddlegirl8!!!  All of the baskets are super cute!

I received an AMAZING package from my partner Eclectic Dreamer on Monday.  I'm sorry it took me so long to post pictures, this week has been much more of a train wreck than I expected. 

She made a really beautiful basket.  I love black with vibrant colors and she found some amazing fabric.  I really love it!  She also did an amazing job centering the fabric!  I always try to work with fabrics where it doesn't matter if you center something...lol.  Smiley



She also sent me four coasters straight off my pinterest!  I love them - so cute and nautical.  Cheesy



I had asked for Christmas ornaments in my questionnaire and she sent me really cute bear ornaments and M&M ornaments.  She also included a tiny notebook made from a paint chip. 





Thank you so much for the awesome package!!!  I love everything!

Eclectic Dreamer, I love that basket!  The fabric is wonderful!  The coasters are really cool (did you just happen to have that rope on hand?)  Great package!

Leslie: I did happen to have enough on hand for one coaster, but had to purchase more. As I remember, the tutorial said to use a hot glue gun... but if anybody wants to try the coasters, I suggest using fabric glue. It worked much better. I got the "rope" from the Home Decor section.

Zkatom: Your pics look great Smiley I saved them so I have copies too. I'm glad you liked everything, and my bears get a new home that will appreciate them.

That basket Eclectic Dreamer made is beautiful! Yes, the fabric is excellent centred, great job!!
Those nautical themed coasters are very nice. Buying your cord at the Home decor section is a good idea...
Nice extras too.

Great package, zkatom!

Since my swap-along partner is having trouble posting pictures, I will post my pictures of what I sent to her.  Here's the whole package:



The zippered pouch features a strawberry fabric, because she had something similar on her pinterest; I embellished it with a felt strawberry applique.  I also made her two sets of beaded bobby pins, because she said she would like to receive some sort of hair ornament.  I used linen and a line of fabric called "French General" to make the basket.  I'm pleased with how everything came out.

Here's a close-up of the basket:

A LOVELY fabric basket swap package, Leslie!  I always fall in love with the things you make - you are a sewing (and hair jewelry) artist!!  As a former partner of yours, I can say with first-hand knowledge, YOU ROCK!!   Cool
