Fabric Basket...


Here's a small fabric basket I made a little while ago. It's the third fabric basket I have made using this tutorial and it won't be the last.

Don't you just love the pink fabric? Knitting needles, wool, thread, sewing machines, buttons, pins, scissors, needles, embroidery hoops.....

And here's the other side.

This gorgeous crafty fabric travelled half way around the world to reach me and now, some of it has travelled back again in the shape of this little basket.

  1. You got me...I was looking at the fabric and saw "Threading my way" on it and thought you had designed/purchased it from Spoonflower! Then I realized it was your watermark.:) Cute little basket, perfect for those odds and ends.

  15. This is exactly what I've been looking for, thanks so much for linking to the tutorial! And the fabric you used is too cute!

    I'm thinking about making a basket in oil cloth on one side and cotton on the other, do you think that'll work?

    1. Thanks for the lovely comment. I've never sewn with oil cloth, so I can't really comment on whether it will work. I imagine it will make the seams thicker. If you do end up making one, I'd love to see it!

  20. Hi (second attempt at comment!) - love the fabric you used! Is that the one from the US? Spoonflower is it?

    I've made quite a few of these buckets from the a similar tutorial. Very handy they are too and great fun to make!

    I saw one of your comments asking about oilcloth - I made this bucket using oilcloth and it was fab! Worked just as well and made it stiffer and more 'useful' for sturdier jobs actually! Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of it before I gave it to a friend, but others are on my blog: http://asewingadventure.blogspot.co.uk/
