Pascha Basket

I didn't finish my basket cover in time for Pascha. In fact, my spoonflower package arrived on Bright Monday! But on Wednesday, I took red eggs to the skete, so I decided to hem up the cloth and take it then.

I printed it on a fat quarter of cotton voile, although tea towels are usually printed on their linen-cotton canvas. I thought the cotton voile felt more like a handkerchief, and being a bit fancier, I'd be more likely to not use it for dish washing and save it for Pascha. I'm very pleased with how it turned out! If you don't mind hemming your own, you can order a fat quarter on Spoonflower, too.
