    4 Fabric baskets for Friends

    I meet weekly with 4 other women in a prayer group. We have the best time. Tonight we went out to eat
    and shared homemade Christmas gifts. The food was great and the laughter was even better. This was the first time that we decided to make our gifts instead of buying them. It turned out to be so special! These are the 4 baskets that I made for my friends. They were well received!

    These baskets are very beautiful. They must all just love theirs.

    Oh wow. They are absolutely beautiful! I'd love to learn how to make them, too, and always think homemade gifts are just so much more personal than just buying something.

    I really think these are fabulous. I have always wanted to try and make them but they seem like they would be very difficult and so I just haven't tried. good job.
