    Cool Baskets for gifts.

    Three for teacher friends and one for my sister who will graduate from massage school in a while. I asked some for colors. One said blue, one said blue and pink, and my sister's massage room is fall orange. The other teacher likes red--if I remember--and I added lots of yellow because she's always a ray of sunshine. I'll admit I don't like putting these together. Linings and turning inside out aren't fun. I do like constructing the outside!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    The pattern is called Basket of Charms by Sweet Jane. It called for medium interfacing--I used firm except in the handles. I also leave a double wide opening to turn because otherwise it wrinkles too much. There are three sizes--this is the biggest. I bought one at a craft show I was in--and it's pretty flimsy--and doesn't have handles.

    Thanks for the nice comments. :-)
