Dawn and Julie have made these beautiful Liberty Christmas Baskets. They both belong to a sewing group and made them during one of their festive sews.
Julie chose ‘Capel B40‘ for her basket. I asked her about the make. “I thought this fabric was lovely and Christmassy and would coordinate really nicely with the Scandi items I made last year. I’ve used my basket for napkins but you could easily use them for condiments, cutlery or even pine cones in front of the fire.
I used Frosty Silver X for the contrast fabric as I wanted the Capel to really stand out. It was an easy project to make. I would recommend you use one quilting cotton alongside the Tana Lawn to give it a bit more structure and rigidity. I really like the finished basket and feel that it will make a pleasing addition to my Christmas table.”
The pattern was designed by Sadie Yeomans from Cornerhouse Crafts. Sadie leads their sewing group and always has fun and fresh ideas to share. She runs all kinds of workshops and sewing groups in Worcestershire in the UK which gives sewing inspiration to many. The pattern for this project is called ‘Christmas Basket’.
Dawn chose ‘Poinsettia Y’ for her basket. She said “I chose the Poinsettia pattern because I’m definitely very traditional when it comes to Christmas. It just has to be red, green and gold! This fabric fitted the bill perfectly. I would quite like to make the basket on a smaller scale too – one for each place setting at the Christmas table. I would fill them with little treats but that may have to be a project for next year now!”
I love these Liberty Christmas Baskets. They will look so pretty on Dawn and Julie’s Christmas tables.
