Make a Theme Basket or Fill with Home Baked Goodness!
Turn the ordinary into something special by wrapping up gifts in these pretty baskets. Because the baskets are wide and deep, they’re perfectly suited for filling with goodies for Christmas, birthdays, Valentine’s, showers, housewarmings and more.
Beautiful cookies or other food items will seem more special when presented in one of these baskets. Or, create a basket filled with a selection of items around a particular theme.
Choose fabric you love that fits the occasion and add pretty rickrack and a wide ribbon to match. Select one of the two sizes and start sewing. You’ll have a basket made up before you know it.
Of course, once the gift is unwrapped the recipient can use the basket for whatever they want. Besides being useful, it serves as a reminder of your thoughtful gift.
Designed by Alicia Thommas, the small basket is about 8″ x 5″ x 3″ and the large one is 10″ x 6″ x 4″.

Also included with the tutorial are printable tags for Christmas giving. Nice!
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!
