Tutorial: Fabric Basket


Thanks for those of you who asked for a tutorial on the fabric basket project I updated yesterday! This is gonna be my second tutorial on my this blog. If anything isn't clear, feel free to leave me a comment and ask me for help. Remember that all seam allowances are 1/4" throughout the process, and seam allowances are included in all the fabric pieces used in this tutorial.

::Materials needed::
Fabric:
Natural Linen: 1/4 yard for Basket Exterior and Handles
Pink Polka Dots Print: 1/8 yard for Basket Exterior
Pink Geometric Print: 1/8 yard for Basket Exterior
Flower Print: 1/8 yard for Basket Exterior
Green Rabbit Print: 1/2 yard for Lining
Other Materials:
Fleece Batting: 1/2 yard


First of all, cut out 2" squares from 3 different kinds of fabrics: 8 squares from each.
(1/4" seam allowance is included, so your finished square will be a 1 1/2" square)


Sew together two squares, making sure those two are different fabrics.
I made equal amounts for each set like in the picture: 4 for each set.


Press seams in one direction in the way that it isn't on top of each other.


Now Sew together pieces to create 2 6x2 patchwork layer.


When 2 layers are completed, press seam open like this.


It should look like this when you flip them over.When the same fabrics are not
next to each other like this, it might look a little interesting.


Sew the patchwork layers to a 6"x9 1/2" piece of linen fabric.


Place a fleece batting underneath it. Fleece batting is stable and great for this purpose. Make it a little bigger than the top layer.


Pin the layers and sew along the line that separates the patchwork part and the linen part. Repeat this for the other side too.


Machine baste the both edge.


Cut off the excess batting.


Fold it in half right sides together and sew the two edges like this.


Box corners (this link is helpful). Sew the line: along the seam from the pointy end to the needle it is 1 3/4". Repeat this for the other corner too.


Trim excess.


Let us move on to making handles. Cut out 2 - 2"x10 1/2" pieces of fabrics.


Sew them right sides together and press seam open.


Fold each side to the middle just like when you make a bias tape.


Fold in half and sew the edges like this.


Cut in half. Now you have two handles.


Sew the handles to the main basket.





Now let's make a basket lining. Fold in half a 12"x9 1/4" piece of fabric right sides together and sew the two edges, leaving a lining opening(about 2").


Do the same as you did for the main basket.


Sew outer basket and lining together.


Turn the basket right side out through lining opening and pin like this.


Sew the top part of the basket. Hand-stitch opening closed.




Now your fabric basket is complete! Yeah!!

I would love to hear what you think of this tutorial and if you make it, let me know!

Thanks for your time to stop by this blog and reading my posting!;)


Edited to add:
- All my tutorials are for personal use only. Thanks for understanding!

- Now this tutorial is available in a PDF format (so that you can finally
print it out!)

Edited to Add:
This fabric basket measures approximately 5 1/4"(width) X 3 1/2"(height excluding handles) X 4"(depth). I have had many people who made it a little larger. To make a basket that is approcimately 7 7/8" wide, 5 1/2" high, and 6" deep, I would cut out pieces as follows: Each square patch: 3" x 3", linen (the bottom part) 9" x 15 1/2", box corner 2 5/8", handles 3" x 15 3/4", linear fabric 18" x 15 1/2."

  2. Thank you for such a wonderful project!
    I just made a similar one and posted it on my blog.
    I had to altered the size and construction slightly for what I needed, so its not quite as cute as yours, but it still turned out pretty good. :)
    As soon as I get over my fear of small pieces (LOL)I'd love to make a patchwork one like yours.

    Thanks again!

  6. This was the best and easiest tutorial I've ever followed. I hope you'll do many more! I tried to read all the comments to see if anyone had done the math to make this in a bigger size...but couldn't read them all, lol. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the one I made today. I'm going to send it to my mom for Mother's Day. But would like to make a bigger one, too :)

    What a wonderful tutorial you've put together. I made 2 little baskets this afternoon in just under 2 hours. When I went to buy linen (b/c I really love the look of linen) I found lime green linen embroidered with yellow daisies and some anonymous blue flowers. I used a bit of that instead of the patchwork part. They look fabulous. Your directions were spot on - thank you so very much for taking your time to share that with your readers.

  107. Over 2 years since the last comment but...I just made one of these fabric baskets today using your tutorial. I have wanted to do it for a while. I made one using Flora and Fauna by Patty Young for Michael Miller. I used the turquoise, hot pink, black and dk grey color way. It is so cute. I can't post a pic yet on Flickr because it is for my daughter and she always looks at flickr. She will get it tomorrow and I can post then. Thank you so much. I will be making more of these as gifts. I may add a bit of interfacing to make the sides sturdier. Cheers!

  124. Thank you Ayumi for this tutorial, excellent work! You can see my basket here:http://mosunbi.blogspot.com/2011/02/asian-fabric-basket.html

  125. Thank you for sharing and for showing all the steps in photos. I enjoyed making.

  126. Thank you everyone!

    Digi, what I would do is to make the outer bag first and see how big it will turn out. You can simply cut out lining that is the same size as the outer bag :) Hope this helps! I'm sorry it took me so long to get back to you.

  132. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I have very little experience in sewing, but sewing, following your tutorial was easy and fun. Here you can see my basket: http://sanovayatut.blogspot.com/2011/02/blog-post_27.html
    The fabric I used, literally, from my grandmother's dower chest:) Basket is on my desk, I put into it various small things.

  180. Just a question..
    in the last step, what do you mean by "Hand-stitch opening closed"?.
    Many thanks!
    Isabel rey

    ReplyDelete
  181. Thank you everyone!

    Isabel-
    Glad you are making your basket! When you turn the right side of your basket from the opening, you want to close up the opening. I grab the opening, crease the edges to make seam allowance, and hand-sew the opening so that it will be closed - no more hole in the basket's lining. Hope this makes sense ;)
