This cute little fabric basket was a fast and fun project. It uses very little fabric but is very useful for storage. It could be completed with a fat quarter if you did not want a contrasting lining. I hope you enjoy this fabric basket tutorial.
2 pieces 6 inches by 8 inches main color for outside of basket
2 pieces 6 inches by 8 inches lining material
2 pieces of iron on interfacing 6 inches by 8 inches
- 1. Iron on interfacing to the main fabric
- With right sides of the main fabric together, sew the side and bottom seams.
- Make boxed corners, this is a great site for instructions for making boxed corners. http://www.threadingmyway.com/2012/05/fabric-basket-tutorial.html
- Repeat steps 1-3 on lining fabric. The only difference is that you should leave a three inch gap on bottom seam of lining.
- Put the main fabric bag inside the linig, right side to right side.
- Sew to join the top edges of the lining and the outside of the bag.
- Pull the right side of the bag out through the lining.
- Hand sew the lining shut
- Push the lining back into the bag.
- Iron the bag.
- Topstitch the edge of the baske
I used some fabric I bought on the remnant shelf to make this fabric basket. I liked that it was St. Patrick’s Day themed. Now all this cute little guy needs is to be filled with some treats. I was going to buy gold candy coins to make it a pot of gold.
