Fabric Basket

I decided to make another fabric basket.  My fabric scrap basket works perfect on my cutting table and looks nice there too.  I was thinking how versatile the baskets would be made up in different fabrics. 

This basket was made using 2 1/2″ squares.  I cut my bottom 11″ x 8″.  I cut my handles 2″W x 6″L.  I think they are the perfect length.  I used a turquoise batik for the lining and the bottom.  The bright flower print has turquoise, yellow, orange, blue and green in it, so I chose a bright yellow and a bright orange for the other squares. The finished size is 5″H x 4 1/2″ square.

My granddaughter’s favorite color is turquoise and I made this basket for her birthday.  I thought this little basket would be perfect on her dresser or desk for all the little things teenage girls need; i-pod, cell phone, earrings, bracelets, hair accessories, make-up and more.  I hope she likes it.
