Keeping Christmas {Holiday Flutterby Baskets}

Hello friends...it's been a little while since I've posted over here, but I'm sharing this project over on my papercrafting blog Flutter by Atomicbutterfly for my Keeping Christmas project this month, but because they are sewn, they get double posted! LOL! I've made quite an assortment of these Flutterby Baskets for different holidays so it probably won't surprise you that I made some for Christmas. I also made some handmade handwarmers using the same fabric. I do want to point out that I used heavyweight Pellon for these. I was so happy that I did and I actually won't ever go back to anything lighter. It is the perfect weight to keep these baskets sturdy and keep their shape.
These were actually made for Christmas 2017, but I ran out of time to properly photograph them. These photos are all "on the fly" as I was packaging everything up!
I really wanted to snap a few pictures so that I could document all of my hard work,and I am so grateful that I did!

I ended up making 10 key wristlets in total. The fat quarter bundle that I picked up had 5 different designs, so I made 2 of each design.
These are the supplies that I used. I found the fat quarter bundle at Wal-Mart. It has a metallic detailing that I thought would be fun for a Christmas project, without being Christmas-y. I purchased the hardware on Amazon and you can find it HERE
To begin, I cut 4 inch strips the with of the fabric. Once that was done, I pressed it, folded it in half, and then folded each of the sides in to meet the middle. I pressed that down and then folded them in half again.
You can see them all pressed here. It didn't take …
