Make This Homey Basket With or Without a Handle!
This woven fabric basket reminds us of the bushel baskets that you see at the farmers market during warm weather months. It was designed for jelly roll strips (2 1/2″) although you can cut your own strips from your favorite fabrics.
We can imagine many uses around the house and sewing room for this basket. It would also be lovely on the patio table during warm weather months for holding silverware and such. Or, display flowers or produce in it. Just insert a sturdy plastic bag to enclose anything that might leak or stain.
Once you get rolling with this simple project you can easily make more than one. Keep one and give others as gifts. Or, line several up on a shelf to hold sewing supplies.
The finished basket is 6″ high x 8″ in diameter. The pattern includes a version with a handle, also.
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!
