I made 14 Christmas baskets/bins this weekend--as many as I could make with the interfacing I had on hand. They're easy to make, but still rather time-intensive if you're careful about getting the first couple of seams to line up right. I think in the end, it averaged out to be about 50 minutes a bin. (Could have been a tiny bit faster if the kitty didn't keep trying to help.)

They still need one more pressing (to steam out the creases made when flattening their bottoms). And I need to decide (for when I give them as gifts) if they should be presented standing straight up or folded over. (The ladies who received my autumny ones seem to prefer them folded over.)

Here's cell-phone pics. (I'm waiting for a replacement cord for my better camera.)

Some of these have an intended recipient, some are just going randomly to ladies in the office. I need to make more! First, though, I hope to figure out how to fix the thread tension problem on my sewing machine.
