I just love these little fabric baskets that were a such a hit a few years ago. The baskets are fun to make and they use small scraps of stash. I was looking at the scraps of leftover material from the quilt I am making for my sewing room and decided a scrap basket would be perfect. The pattern for these baskets can be found on Pink Penguin’s Blog along with other great tutorials.
As always, I made some changes to the pattern. Ayumi uses 2″ squares for her basket. I used 2 1/2″ squares and I enlarged the bottom a bit. I made my basket oblong instead of square. I also made my handles a little long than she did. I love my basket and it works perfect on my cutting table for my scraps .
With different material this basket would be perfect as an Easter Basket. Just an idea. Happy sewing!
