The Classic Fabric Basket Reimagined |
They’re Still Super Easy to Make!
Make one or a bunch of these cute baskets and vary the sizes to suit your needs. They’re great for storage in the sewing room and elsewhere around the house. Plus they make wonderful gifts.
Choose two complementary fabrics for each basket. Large buttons are lovely accents.
Connie from Freemotion by the River has taken the classic pattern created by Seaside Stitches (found here) and developed a clever way to omit the winged pockets in the corners.
Once the wings are cut off, use Connie’s method to enclose the raw edges for a polished finish. The following basket shows the corners on the outside. They could also be on the inside of the basket, depending on which look you prefer.
You’ll find Connie’s tutorial at the following link. She also provides instructions for varying the size.
Connie goes into more depth about adapting the corners in the following tutorial.
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!
