Let's get a jump start on Christmas gifts 2010


Several years ago I made bread all the time.
It seems that the trend has returned and what better way to celebrate that than with the resurgence of the bread basket liner.
Now granted I embroidered mine on the machine but a simple stitchery would work just as well.
I have a store bought Christmas one that I use but I am in the process of creating one for my daughter for Christmas. I will post is as soon as I get it done.
As a gift for the holidays you can provide a simple basket with a bread cover, add some bread making stuff if desired, or be creative and make a bread basket cover for all four seasons or each month.
I have a Spanish one I made laying around somewhere that I made years ago so anything goes on these.
Now, on the one shown I used a store bought napkin but napkin can easily be whipped up. But I have provided a tutorial here if you want to make your own.

That's terrific! I love to use covers and liners for my bread baskets...I'm always trying to buy extra large napkins to use just for that purpose.

Your daughter is so lucky...she's going to have lots of wonderful things to use for all the seasons and holidays!

XOXO,
