This is the first swap I’ve participated in for quite some time. I’ve been working more on my own things lately and spending less time online. Also, it seems like most swappers are using Instagram now instead of Flickr, and I haven’t jumped into that yet. Perhaps I should move with the times.
Anyhow, one of the things my partner mentioned was a divided basket and Heather Ross fabric. Who doesn’t like Heather Ross? Her illustrations are about as adorable as it gets. So, I was feeling inspired and cut into some of my stash for this swap. I couldn’t decide which basket to send, so I sent them both.
I thought the pigs might look a little to baby-ish, but I think my partner liked them better than the other basket. The second basket is my personal favorite. For one, it’s nice and sturdy with super heavy weight interfacing. It was a bear to sew up, but I loved the end result. I’m also really still into the low volume look that I used on the back, so I was kind of tempted to keep this one for myself—I resisted, though!
