I whipped up a couple of these adorable storage baskets for my Make Mine Modern swap partner this weekend. I used this seriously quick and easy tutorial from Pink Penguin. It only took me two hours to make both of them, and that was with a lot of distractions (granted, there are always plenty of distractions around here). I could see this becoming one of my go-to items, perfect for last-minute gifts.
One of the requirements for this swap is an item to decorate my partner's sewing space. These should be good for storing thread or other notions, so I can check that off the list! And I have my partner's fabric already (we have to swap a total of 1.5 yards of fabric as well). So that just leaves the main part of the swap, my "handmade item," and I think I'm working toward a plan there as well. It sure is nice to have made some progress on this swap.
I'm linking up to Sew Modern Monday ... pop over to Megan's to see what everybody else was up to this weekend!
