It Has Many Uses, With or Without the Handle!
Choose a variety of leftover 2 1/2″ strips for a pretty woven basket. The basket is a natural for Easter, but it will be lovely given other uses around the home.
It will also be wonderful filled with goodies for gifts. Or, omit the handle for even more uses.
The basket is created from strips woven together. Once you understand the process you can easily adapt its size and shape as needed.
A double-sided fusible craft interfacing, such as Fast2Fuse, gives the basket structure.
The finished basket, designed by Linda Turner Griepentrog for Coats, is 7 1/2″ square by 4 1/2″ tall without the handle.
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!
