Fabric baskets

In my last post I showed you  five purple and lavender fabrics with a touch of green in them well they have now been turned into four little baskets.    The same dark purple fabric was used to make the bases and the underside of the handles then it was just a matter of mixing up the 3" squares so that no two are together and each basket has a different lining that matches the topside of the handles.

I did make some of the same little baskets quite a few years ago but they were smaller so this time I made them a bit larger.    All you need to know about making them can be found here including cutting directions for the larger size.

Also mentioned in a previous post there is an abundance of   2 1/2" squares floating around my sewing room - something is about to happen to those soon. 

Linking with Rainbow Challenge.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Lovely baskets, Karen! My favourite colours too!
That’s one of the first tutorials I ever printed out, soon after buying our first laptop, but I don’t think I ever finished it ..... despite cutting out the fabric! It was before I started blogging! Now you’ve reminded me I think it will have to go on my “to do” list.
