My inspiration for these 2 baskets came from an invitation to a friend's baby shower. What cute gift baskets these would make! And they can be loaded up with all kinds of baby items. Plus, the baskets are functional. I just can't tell you how many ways these baskets are wonderful!
Since she and her family decided not to find out the sex of the baby, I went ahead and made a boy gift basket and a girl gift basket. These versions followed the tutorial pretty much to the letter. I used one of my favorite boy fabrics for the outside of the boy basket and lined it with a plain yellow Kona cotton. For the girl basket I used a more muted pink, cream, and grey butterfly fabric lined with a light pink Kona cotton.
Here are the baskets, finished.
Then I loaded them up with some other handmade items; appliqued onesies, some baby pants and hats and each got a laminated cotton bib (for later).
Baby Boy Basket.
Baby Girl Basket.
How cute did they come out?? I swear these fabric baskets could be used for just about anything!
Easter Baskets maybe??
Oh, and which basket did my expectant friend receive?? She had a beautiful little BOY!
