12 Gifts of Christmas Blog Hop: Organizer Basket Tutorial

Trays in Sew Cherry

I was flattered when Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts kindly
asked me to be a part of 12 gifts of Christmas Blog Hop
You've probably read about it over Jennifer's already by now,
but we are bringing you 12 free tutorials on Christmas 
gift makings! One tute per day through October 25th!
Sounds fun, right?! Jennifer started it off with a fabulous double 
sided pace mat tutorial yesterday and here I am hosting a second stop
with a tutorial on how to make these
easy-peasy organizer baskets!



Not ready to think about Christmas yet?
Me neither, but we know it will come before we know it!
Jennifer picked this perfect timing to get this rolling
so that we have plenty of time to whip up gifts!

It's been over a year since I last posted a tutorial, 
so I was a bit nervous writing this up, although it is
probably the easiest project among all sewing tutes 
I have ever written, hehe. Hopefully I took enough pictures
so that the visual will help you through! If you have any
questions about this tute, you know you can contact me anytime!
Ok, here you go!


3

To make one basket, you'll need two 13" x 7" cotton rectangles
(one for exterior, one for interior) and one piece of
cotton batting that is just a little larger than 13" x 7".


4

Spray the wrong side of the interior piece and add the batting.


5

Quilt as desired. I like mine diagonal cross hatch quilted.
I marked a line from one corner to the point where it's 6" from the other corner.


6

Quilt along the line. (My stitch length was set at 3.0)


7

This quilter accessory is such a big help!
I sew while guiding the quilter over the previous row of stitching.
(My quilting lines are approximately 3/4" apart from each other.)


8

Like that. If your sewing machine didn't come with
this accessory, you can mark parallel lines throughout the interior piece.


9

Here is how this looks after diagonal quilting is done.


10

Now mark a line perpendicular to the stitching and quilt in the same manner.


11

Yay quilting is done!


12

Chop off the excess.


13

Now fold in half the piece with right sides together lengthwise
and sew both short edges. (1/4" seam allowance)


 14

Time to box corners!


15

Mark where the seam line is at 1 1/4" from both sides.
(2.5" long from one edge to the other.) Sew along the marked line.


16

Cut off the corner. Leave a small seam allowance.


17

Repeat the same process for the other short edge so that
your quilted interior looks like this.


18

Do the same with the exterior piece.


19

With right sides together, place the exterior inside the
interior. Match seams and pin in place.


20

I like to start sewing just about 3" away from the seam.


21

Leave about 1 1/2" wide opening. Turn the right side out from the opening.

22

Press the opening.


23

Top-stitching!


Trays in Sew Cherry

Now you've finished making this organizer basket!
(Finished size: 2"H x 9 1/2"W x 2 1/2"D)
These nicely soft baskets serve well as drawer organizers/utensil trays,
but if you want to stabilize the baskets a little,
you can alternate the pattern by using interfacing on
the back of the exterior and/or using stiffer batting and/or...

24

Top-stitching four corners.


2

Your basket will be more squarish like this.
(these were made in the same way except for top-
stitched corners.)


1

This basket is a perfect size to put together 16 spools of Gutermann 250m
threads for a gift. (Oh I just had a vision of this basket filled with spools
and one big handle in the middle! That would make a cute gift, wouldn't it?)


27

Or maybe pen holders? Whatever you or the recipients
of your baskets can think of :) Lots of possibilities!

I would love to see your baskets in this flickr pool and
here for anything you made using tutorials in this blog hop!

  144. What a great tutorial! I can see all kinds of uses...one wide enough for a row of tea bags, perhaps...definitely a more stylish way to organize thread than the plastic tub I have all mine thrown in, and a great use for larger scraps!
