Embellish Them However You Like!

The legs from old jeans form the body of these handy baskets. The baskets are so charming and a bit addictive to make so gather up old jeans and have fun making your own cute versions (check thrift stores and tag sales for jeans).

Line the baskets with pretty fabric and Annie’s Soft and Stable. Rick rack, fusible applique, buttons and more can be added to give each of them its own personality.

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!
