Swap basket

This is my last submission to the textile swap! Remember that Baskets and Blooms die? It was one of the first XL dies available through Stampin Up. I have to admit that it had been on the bottom of the die heap for awhile. But it has a new lease on life!

I bought some lovely wool felt to make these baskets, and cut them with my Big Shot and the Baskets and Blooms die. For this one, I did some decorative stitching on what would be the front. Then I stitched the basket wrong sides together (I didn't use the basket bottom for this project, but you could!) and turned it right sides out. What a cutie pie little gift bag!

This die also happens to include some adorable little flower shapes! I cut them from felt and put one on the front of the basket. The others I made into hair clips! You could make them magnets or the tops for bookmarks or card elements or scrap page decorations--the options are endless!
