A few more pictures of this huggy basket other than those I showed on IG...
I thought I was crazy to decide to sew this entirely (from patchwork to quilting to binding) by hand given only three days to complete it. But when I finished the last stitch, I was so overwhelmed with satisfaction. It's not a perfect piece of sewing. But I really love it a lot. Every stitch was filled with gratitude and appreciation for the loving and caring teacher who deserved this heart-felt present.
She dropped me a message that night, saying she was very touched because it's the first time she received a handsewn present.
It made my day so much brighter that my fingers didn't feel sore anymore.xxx
