Turn Jelly Roll Strips Into a Pretty Basket
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.
The finished basket, designed by Carolyn S. Vagts, is 20″ x 14″ x 6″.
