Make One or More in Sizes to Fit the Space!

Fabric baskets hung over curtain rods provide handy storage space anywhere around the house. Hang one by itself or several spaced horizontally or vertically in whatever size and configuration fits the space.

They’re great for the sewing room, bath, next to the door, in a baby or teen’s room and more. Just decide on the size and choose two complementary fabrics for each basket.

In a second tutorial she gives instructions for making deeper baskets, like those shown above. She used pieces of plexiglass in the bottoms of these to provide additional structure (baskets of all sizes are stiffened with heavyweight interfacing).

Between the two tutorials you should be able to make baskets of just the right size.


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!
