A Thanksgiving Bread Basket

I always make my Mother's Yeast Rolls for the Thanksgiving meal, and this year the tradition will continue. Using an old bread basket liner as a pattern, I made some Thanksgiving liners to use on the table this year. These took very little fabric and a short amount of time to whip up.



The liner is almost a square piece of fabric - 16 x 18 inches.


The sides were cut out forming 4 "arms" that fold in.




I bought a small piece of seasonal fabric and cut the turkey shapes out, then fused them on the "arms" of the liner. I also stitched around the shapes and zigzaged around the outer edge.


That was an easy project. The bread baskets are ready. Now I only have about 299 more things to do before next week.

  1. Your basket liner is cute! I actually ended up with one in a bag of doilies I bought at a thrift store and didn't know what it was:@)

  2. Anita, that is so cute! I've never seen a basket liner but it is a very good idea. I think I will show this to my aunt who sells crafts at her Christmas open house. It looks like something she would like to make. Your liner looks much better than the boring napkin I use. Have a great weekend!--------- Shannon

  3. Oohhh this is just a great idea! I would have never thought of this. I am going to pin this so that I can try it out some time. I'm always bringing bread or rolls to our family gatherings and this would be a great way to fancy them up a bit.
