Uncles, co-workers, brothers...it's hard to find, much less make, gifts for men. I made two of these baskets in one afternoon. I think any coffee drinker, whether man or woman, would like this collapsible fabric basket filled with coffees, mugs and sweets that is homemade especially for them by you!
|Approx. 6"x6"x5" high fabric coffee basket. |
One side says, "Espresso and chocolates. Say no more!"
It's collapsible & washable.
- 3 Fat Quarters of various fabric patterns (I "fussy cut" out of 1/2 yd. of the border fabric for the sides, a fat quarter of the all-over coffee beans for the inside lining and a fat quarter of the brown stripe for the bottom/side)
- 1/4 yd (or 1 package) of single-side fusible firm stabilizer
- lightweight Velcro dots or cut strips
There is also a matching apron that you can sew. Combine this with the fabric box for an extra special homemade gift. The fabric panel has everything, including the directions to make this apron, the coffee cup pockets and ties.
