Some of you may have made this cute little fabric basket already, but I have not made it yet and recently came across a way to make it and so I thought I would share the method.
You can store your sewing supplies, craft supplies, nail polish, pretty soaps, halloween treats or give it to someone as a gift filled with Christmas goodies. It can be made in any size you like and I have already decided that I want to make more of them for sure!
Step 1- Determine what fabric you would like for the lining and for the outside, cut lining and outside into a square 10", 12", etc as you like (a rectangle will not work). Cut 2 squares- 1 of lining and one of outside. Cut the same for batting
Step 2- Lay the outside fabric right side up on the batting and iron it, lay your lining fabric right side down to the outside fabric- see pics below
Step 3- Pin a 3" gap on one side and sew 1/4" all the way around the square, leaving the gap open and clip corners just up to the stitching
Step 4- Turn to the right side and poke out corners, press and slip stitch the gap.
Step 5- Quilt the quilt sandwich as desired, I quilted mine echoing the outside edges using a walking foot around and around until the square sandwich was filed with echo stitching
Step 9- Turn your inside corners out to the outside fabric and sew a button on the point to make flaps, fill it with all your "stuff" and enjoy!- refer to picture
