I ran across the pattern and this free tutorial for this fabric basket by Lillyella Stitchery months ago, and now that all my Christmas sewing is done, I decided to try it just for fun.

The basket is easy to put together, and the pattern instructions are easy to follow.

I’ve never worked with Pellon before, though, and it was much more simple that I expected.

I decided to use this basket to store my pattern assembly supplies.  My tape and scissors have the really bad habit of walking off and not making their way back to my sewing supplies.  I think if I keep them all together where they’re not quite as visible, they won’t disappear as frequently.

Power of positive thinking, right?

If you’re interested in making some yourself, you can download the pattern for free from Craftsy HERE.  Enjoy, and happy sewing!

I am linking this project up with Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts for her Finish it up Friday (Monday) series.

    1. You’re welcome! I have to admit that I am not a beginning sewer, but I was totally intimidated by using Pellon!

    1. Thank you, Penny! It seems to work really well. I didn’t put handles on it like the pattern has, and if I was going to store anything with substantial weight, I would definitely do so. Otherwise, it is perfect for my tape and scissors.

    1. Thank you, Vera! I received a low volume Fat Quarter Bundle as a giveaway, and the solid color is the plain sheet I recently used to back my youngest daughter’s Christmas Quilt.

  1. GReat basket. Sounds like a great plan. The sides seem high enough to keep The scissors from picking themselves up and wondering away ;-}

    1. Thank you, Carie! I really struggle with keeping all my sewing supplies rounded up and in one place looking tidy, and I think I am going to make several more of these in different sizes to store my supplies. We have a small house with very little storage, and I don’t have a dedicated craft room, so my supplies need to be able to be controlled as much as possible! LOL

    1. Thank you, Caryl. It really was easy to make. I’m going to try upsizing it for a bigger storage bin.

Thank you for commenting, I love hearing from my readers!
