It’s Easy Enough for Beginners with Basic Sewing Skills!
A beautiful combination of batiks come together in this nicely sized basket. It’s large, making it great for storing fabric in the sewing room, towels in the bathroom and much more.
Plus, you can make the basket as tall as you want. Just keep adding rows.
It’s also great in fabrics other than batiks. Start with 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips in a nice color combination and have fun watching the basket come together.
Batting strips, either cut by hand or pre-cuts like these, give the basket structure. The bottom of the basket is made from a single piece of fabric, stabilized with batting and a stiff heavyweight sew-in stabilizer (like this).
The finished basket, designed by Carolyn S. Vagts, is 20″ x 14″ x 6″.
You’ll find the “London Basket” pattern in Jelly Roll Baskets & Bags.
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!
