These Handy Baskets Are Also Great Gifts!

The inventive little baskets shown here, made from fabric and interfacing, are so cute. They’re easy to make, too. You’ll find yourself reaching for them again and again for storage and for displaying various goodies.

They’re also wonderful for gifts. Fill a basket with items the recipient will enjoy and watch them smile when they see the pretty basket.

Button Boats Pattern

To make the baskets, layer cake squares are adhered to firm interfacing with fusible web and cut into shape. Once sewn together, cords wrapped around buttons give the baskets dimension. Untie them to store them flat.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
