Orange Ombre Basket

I took a bunch of photographs of my completed Orange Ombre Quilted Basket this morning and would love your input. Click any image to enlarge.

First of all, if you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I had to wash the exterior of the basket to get rid of the chalk lines left by the Dritz marking pencil. The result was, of course, a soft crinkled look to the fabric which I quite liked. What do you think? Also, I’d like your opinions on the photos, these are for my Etsy shop and I’d like to know which photos you like best and why. You’re allowed to include five photos with your listing.

Without further ado, here they are:

p.s., I haven’t slip stitched the top yet so I can still make changes, i.e., iron the exterior fabric.

p.p.s., Thank you for your help!!

How cute is this bag? It’s listed in Keyka Lou’s patterns being retired on sale! The bird fabric is one of my favorites, I made a pillow for my sister with it and I love it on this shoulder bag. I also used Joel Dewberry’s Herringbone in pond, its a perfect match for the bird’s crown jewels. There are 4 hidden pockets on this bag, two on the outside and two inside.

For the interior I used┬áJay-Cyn Designs’ Organic, Birdie Spokes and Dottie in Sun. Instead of using the recommended fusible interfacing, I used white cotton which gives it a softer feel. This bag could potentially be reversible. Currently available in my Etsy Shop.
