You Can Also Use Them All Around the House!
These attractive fabric baskets, or pods, can help you stay organized all around the house. They’re designed with pockets placed inside, outside, or both, to give you more storage options. Or omit the pockets if you don’t need them.
Hanging loops allow them to be hung from a pegboard or elsewhere. Or stand them on a shelf, table, or just about anywhere. You may even want one for your car.
Plus, they’re easy enough for beginners and go together quickly. You’ll likely be able to make one an hour once you’ve completed the first one – which is great because they also make thoughtful gifts.
Start with a fat quarter for the outside, a coordinating fat quarter for the lining, and half of a fat quarter (fat eighth) for the pocket. Fusible fleece interfacing from HeatnBond is used to provide structure for the bins and to strengthen the pockets.
The finished baskets, designed by Caroline from Sew Can She, are approximately 7 1/2” tall and 7 1/2” wide, not including the hanging loop. With the hanging loop, they are 9 1/2” tall.

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!
