Usually, I gift a bottle of wine when I attend parties at this time of the year, but I came across an interesting book called It’s a Wrap by Susan Breier. Hmmm, what about a fabric bowl? I have fabric. Boy do I have fabric. I even had the correct type of clothesline in the house. All right, I was in the basket making business.
It is so much fun making one of these baskets. Yes, it’s a little tedious wrapping the fabric strips around the clothesline, but when you get to the sewing, before you know it, a basket is constructed before your eyes. Fill it up with macaroons and scones, and you have a wonderful hostess gift.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this book. Before you know it, you’ll be making bowls, and purses, and plates galore.
