Well this is what I came up with, he brought the gingham fabric himself and allowed me to have the freedom to do what I wanted with it.
Im sure I am the same as most of you, once you start you just cant stop. So after creating the lining for the basket I then went on to create napkins to match. (Still not quite sure why my brother thought he would need 2 meters of fabric to line this little basket but never mind!!)
What do you think? It has made me think about items I can create with the rest of the gingham fabric to go with the basket. I am jealous myself, wish I had something like it, Im contimplating going back and seeing if there are any more. Think this would be brilliant on my sewing table fully of fabrics or threads. Having two seperate compartments would allow two totally different sides, maybe even different fabrics lining each side.
