In No Time You’ll Have Enough Baskets To Organize Your Sewing Room.
These raw edge baskets suit a quilting timeline just right. Open out a basket to collect fabric scraps from one project. Then use up the scraps for another, fold up the basket and put it away. Extra baskets without taking up additional space in your sewing room. The baskets fold flat and slip easily into a space in the cupboard or drawer, never to be seen again until needed.
Find 2 fat quarters or use scraps sewn together in strips, squares or any form of patchwork, and cut the piece to 18″ x 22″. Then use a co-ordinate fat quarter for the inner side of the basket. Choose something you love since the basket is reversible. These are the fastest baskets around using 2 sided fusible stabiliser for support. To use the basket, fold two corner flaps together, and weave the trimmed flap up through the slots on both at the same time. Repeat on the other side.
They are so much nicer than plastic ones, anyone can make them, and you can choose some really pretty prints. Turn a boring shelf into a colorful display, the baskets filled with exciting patterns, notions, fabric scraps and quilt blocks in progress. Using the entire fat quarter so there’s no wasted fabric, make a couple of extra baskets to fold flat and put away till needed. Nothing beats a handy little basket instantly within reach.
Fat quarter baskets are just great, why not add a couple of big baskets just the same. They’re also reversible and can be used for anywhere around the home, for decor, a laundry basket, or to store bath towels. The free tutorial also offers measurements for a slightly smaller basket.
