How to Sew a Round Fabric Basket
Fabric baskets are always useful.
I needed a project for the Minerva Crafts Bloggers’ Network, and knowing that this would be due just after Christmas when lots of us are needing some extra storage, I decided to write a tutorial showing how to sew round fabric baskets.
The best solution to too much mess is to sort through it, keep what you love or can’t manage without and get rid of the rest. But while you’re having your sort out (or delaying the sort out by reading lots of books telling you how to go about it!), it’s useful to have somewhere to put the stuff in the meantime.
Also, sometimes the mess is edible things, like chocolate money, or stuff that other people need to sort out, like half finished lego models and little yellow heads.
There’s no need for piles of mess, just chuck the mess in a pretty basket!
These baskets are easy to make. I made three of different sizes and the tutorial explains how to do this. There’s also a template for the middle sized basket (about 20 cm across) if you don’t want to make your own template.
The fabric I used was this Gutermann fat quarter bundle. I also used some bias binding and some sew in interfacing so that the baskets would hold their shape. These are affiliate links. The fabric bundle contained 5 fat quarters. This was enough fabric, but I did have to be creative with the lining of the smallest basket!
