It’s Great for Bread, Sewing Supplies, and for Giving!
This beautiful fabric basket is all dressed up for dinner. It’s a lovely bread basket for your table or go ahead and use it for sewing supplies and much more.
It also makes a lovely housewarming or hostess gift. Since it’s an easy project and quick to make, you can always have a few on hand for last-minute giving.
Choose two prints that work nicely together for the inside and outside of the basket. Topstitching is a nice finishing touch, as are the pretty bows. Or use buttons instead of bows for a washable basket (or attach the bows with snaps or small pieces of Velcro so they’re removable for washing).
The size of the finished basket designed by Debbie Shore (from The Cotton Craft Co.) was not specified but it appears to be roughly 4 1/2″ high and 9″ square. Note that the tutorial refers to batting as “wadding.”
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!
