Showcasing ~ Gathered Round Fabric Basket Tutorial

There's no end to the number of items that can be neatly stored in fabric baskets. Measuring just 4½" in diameter x 1¾" high, these pretty baskets are perfect for holding small sewing bits and pieces. That's what I put in mine and it sits right next to my sewing machine.


Lisa, from A Spoonful of Sugar, shows how to make a gathered, round fabric basket which is fully reversible. The tutorial is for a small basket, but you could easily alter the dimensions to make one in any size. Or follow the directions to make a set of three nesting baskets.

I can vouch for the fact that this really is a quick and easy project. The brown basket is mine. I cheated a bit and machine stitched the binding to the inside of the basket. Hand stitching would have been neater, but I went for speed.

Lisa added her basket to the Fabric Baskets link party. There's a few links you may like to check out...
