Last night I attended my friend’s 30th birthday party. The party decor and food was themed based on in-jokes from the Friends TV show. For her gift, I wanted to give a little something that matched the theme. I decided to put together a simple gift basket for someone who would want to binge watch Friends. What is a TV show marathon without popcorn?
I made my TV Show Marathon Gift Basket using the One Hour Basket pattern by Hearts and Bees.
I chose a cheery gold and yellow polka dot for the exterior and a ditsy orange floral print for the lining.
I didn’t have the fusible stabilizer indicated by the pattern, so I used standard polyester quilt batting and simply sewed it to the fabric using a 1/8″ seam allowance around the perimeter instead of fusing it. It worked just fine!
I filled the basket with microwave popcorn and a few bags of popcorn chips. She’s ready to binge watch Friends with the umpteenth time now.
If you want to make a similar basket, you can download the free pattern from Craftsy.
