Sewn by YOU ~ Paper Pieced Drawstring Fabric Basket

How gorgeous is this paper pieced drawstring fabric basket! Wouldn't you just love to receive this in a swap.

MadAboutBags used my tutorial as the basis to make this bag. She modified Quiet Play's Love in Script Paper Pieces Pattern for the front of the basket.

One tutorial - endless possibilities, limited only by your imagination.

MadAboutBags is a UK Swap Host. I've only taken part in a couple of online swaps, but they were fun...

The tutorial for the Drawstring Fabric Basket with Handles was written over six years ago. At the time I made two baskets as presents - one to store matchbox cars, and the other for storing craft gear.

Since then I've made one for me. Initially it was a sewing basket to take to quilting retreats, but now it stores fabric scraps. It lives on my sewing table and I throw scraps in as I sew, ready to sort when I have time.

Over the years, readers have shown me many bags which have served many different purposes... knitting bag, lunch tote, small toy storage, pencil case, gift basket, to name a few:

Do you enjoy taking part in swaps?

Because of the drawstring cord, this basket is not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
