sturdy fabric basket

These baskets are quick and easy to make and are fat quarter friendly at the original size (the largest piece you need is 17×15 so pull out those big scraps)! They are made sturdy with a layer of Peltex, but can also be made soft using fusible fleece or batting. You could even very easily sew this entire project by hand with no problem.  Old belts are recycled to make the optional handles.

The pattern has been updated to include a cute patchwork variation AND directions on how to make ANY size basket you wish, from one inch to 1000 inches!

You can find my original blog post about the pattern HERE and read more about the updated pattern and how to make different sizes HERE! Both posts include links to the pattern or you can download it directly here.

    This is a terrific tutorial, thank you so much for offering it. I have made one basket, but need some fabric glue to hold down the folded-over top edge, and I will be fashioning some handles out of scrap leather (I like the leather handles). Your instructions are clear and the photos are very helpful. I’m planning to make some for my sisters, and several more to help organize things in our bathroom and around the house. NOTE: One side-effect of this pattern is … you may be inspired to purchase more fabric for your stash (like I did). 😉 Thanks again!

      Hey Valerie! Sorry I missed your comment before. I was not having any trouble downloading on any of my devices, but I reset the link if you want to try again. It’s also linked in both my blog posts so there are several places you can find it. Thanks!
