    Some weeks back someone was looking for a teacher's gift and asked for help or suggestions on what to make. Someone else suggested a Breadbasket bag and someone else added she made breadbags for baskets but put a ricebag in the bottom to keep the rolls and bread warm. I looked everywhere for the thread with all this but I can't find it but I wanted to show that I took everyone's suggestion for the gift for the teacher and made the attached gift for my DS for a hostess gift. I made the whole thing in less than 1 hour. Joann's baskets are on sale for 50% off, I bought a pound of rice at the Dollar Store and had a yard of fabric that I got for another project ...still have enough of the fabric to make a couple potholders and Joila, a NICE gift for under $10.00!

    For the Rice Bag: I made an inside bag for the rice and an outside "pillowcase-type" bag for the outside of the rice bag so the pillowcase can be removed for laundering. Heat the ricebag in the microwave for about 2 - 3 minutes.

    BreadBasket, Rice Bag -put in microwave to heat then put in bottom of basket and put rolls in bag for serving

    Feathers, That is a really lovely gift! Who wouldnt love receiving it! What beautiful fabric and lovely work you did.

    I will have to post a cute idea for a SMALL basket. It takes two fat quarters that you coordinate. It could be for rolls for a couple, a gift basket for bathroom with toiletries, a hostess gift with embroidered handtowels,or anything else you can come up with. It takes about 30 minutes to make it.

    Margie: I'd love to have the "recipe" for your hostess basket. Thank you. I'm always interested in fast, easy, nice hostess gifts.

    My sister loved the breadbasket and said she planned to make a rice bag cover and bread bag for every season or holiday. I told her I'd make them for her so that will be my after Christmas project.

    Thank you all for the nice comments but I want to make sure you all know this isn't my idea. I got the idea from board members on the Quilting Board but I can't find the thread that told about the idea. Someone was looking for a gift to make for her children's teachers. The board members who responded to her request for quick and easy gifts should get the credit for the great idea. Anyway, I thought the idea was a good one and I loved making the basket for my DS.

    Feathers- that turned out beautifully! I saw your posts about giving us credit... but YOU should take all of the credit! I can only speak for myself I guess, but I just gave you a little spark and you took it to a whole new level. I love the fabrics you chose and how you put it together with the rice bag and the basket. That was one lucky hostess. I bet you'll be getting a whole lot more dinner invitations!

    What a great idea! I love the fabric you used. I'll have to share this idea with my SIL. She's always snuggling up to a warmed up rice bag when she's cold, but I don't think she's ever considered using it to keep her buns warm (no pun intended). :-)

    Thank you, 2Me...I'm glad you responded as I just couldn't find the thread for that suggestion . My sister loved the basket and I know she will be using it for every big dinner occasion ...especially when I get some other holiday motif bags made for the basket. Thanks for the suggestion. Love it.
