These Make Charming Gifts, Too!
Squares cut from scraps were used to make these charming baskets. The designer made the baskets in a rainbow of colors and uses them to store … scraps. She can tell at a glance where to find the color she wants (red basket, red scraps).
While the baskets are great for organizing scraps (and fat quarters), they’re also useful for many other things in the sewing room and beyond. They make nice gifts, too.
Start with 2 1/2″ squares and a lining fabric in your preferred color palette. Annie’s Soft and Stable Batting provides structure for the baskets, while 1″ cotton webbing is perfect for the handles.
The finished baskets, designed by Maria from Sewsewmaria, are 6 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 9 inches deep. It is easy to alter the size by simply adjusting the number of 2 1/5” squares in each row or column.
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!
