A few little extras....

In my last post I may have mentioned a slight mathematical error when creating the strips for the back of the place mats for the Modern She Made Swap - in hindsight it was glaringly obvious. But it does mean that I had a brightly coloured rainbow of strips of fabric begging to be used...

So, I made a few extras for my partner.

The obvious companion to four place mats is four coasters, right!

And then I've seen loads of fabric baskets around blogland but never had the guts to try one - they look tricky! I found Ayumi's tutorial and wow - how straightforward. I whipped this little guy up in just a couple of hours after a horrific day at work - there will definitely be many more of these to come.


Lining fabric

I hope to get all of this in the post at the weekend (possibly with some chocolate)!

I'll be back later in the week to confess to my next swap!

I love the basket. Maybe I should try one of those with Christmas fabrics. Wouldn't that be nice?
