Pink Penguin has a wonderful tutorial for a fabric and linen basket here
. Isn't it the cutest?
I sewed this little one up this morning. It's a fun and easy project that uses small scraps-just 2" cut. That's my kind of project! I'm afraid to tell you that these are addictive, too. I am thinking about making one in each color to hold my smaller fabric scraps. Color coded little scrap baskets....how fun would that be?
Oh, and these would make a great gift, too. That is if you could part with it.
Oh my goodness... LOVE! I adore this little basket! I can assure you that MANY will be made in my house and as gifts! And I think your idea of color coded scrap baskets is brilliant! Thank you for sharing this!!!! You are the best!
Very cute. That is a great gift! don'tyou love when you find easy quick very satisfying things to make!
I just made a halloween themed basket yesterday, they are really so easy, I would say less than an hour to make start to finish
You are giving me too many ideas of things to make. I need about 4 more hours each day. :) Thanks for the great blog.
So I read your blog thru google reader, and I have starred nearly every one of your posts! And this one is no different, I love your idea for color-coded scrap bags... beautiful and functional!
Your basket is beautiful, and they ARE addictive - I've made over a dozen so far, lol.
so cute. i love your fabric choices.
I love the colour coded scrap idea. Wouldn't one be lovely in Christmas prints to hold cards or candy.
So cute - I might have to make one of these up later today!
I love the colors you used and I need to make some baskets. Thanks for reminding me.
Very nice projects. I'm glad I found your blog!
It almost matches the bag you made in your previous post. They look great.
well, now, i don't think i could part with that cuteness either! love it!
so cute! the green/linen combo is killing me :)
Aren't these a fun and quick project...I've made several and my kids keep asking for more;)
Excellent! I am having friends over tomorrow for a sewfest and maybe we can get into making a few of these.
Heck, yeah! That's what I'm talking about. I can see your colors all lined up right now!
Your bag looks great. I think I'll try one this weekend.
thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for using my tutorial to make such a cute fabric basket! Now my blog is having traffic because of your cute basket! Thanks!
By the way, I visit your blog regularly. Your blog is full of amazing crafts and quilting tutorials!! I love them!
I love seeing everyone's baskets. They are so addicting. I love the green and linen.
Dontcha love em! They're rather addicting so watch out! Did you post it on pink penguin's flickr group? You must. I love the un-paper bag as well! Such great inspiration.ooxx`jodi
These seem to be all the rage at the moment. I can see myself whipping one up on the weekend. Love the fabrics you've used.
They are so cute! I actuallu thought of doing that very same thing...making color-coded scrapbaskets using this tutorial :-) Let's when -if ever- I get around to doing that!
Thanks for sharing. You always find the cutest things.
I keep seeing these on everybody's blog! I just have to make some!!!!! I love your colors!
That's darn cute!
How can you say good bye to this cutie?!!?
I am totally addicted to these little cuties too. I have made a bunch for Halloween and Thanksgiving and I will soon make some for Christmas.
Here's one I made for a gift
Love your blog.
very cute! Love the patchwork with linen.
oh, it is super bag, very good idea!!
so nice! a think a bigger one would make a great holder for baby wipes and diapers etc.
I love the green with the linen!
another adorable project!
incredible what you can "whip up" in a few hours! Once again, totally impressed :) have a great weekend!
cute!!! and what a neat idea to color coordinate.....oh the possibilities!
I like it. Maybe I am going to have to learn to make boxes. Tonight's/tomorrow's project is to make a gift for Emili, which is today.
Delightful! Your patchwork projects have me swooning. Love, love, love them!
oh my god
your blog is fantastic
there r now a list of projects to add to my already long list of thigs to do from here!!!!
Well I like the little bucket and am thinking some of those at house could be useful. I was thinking I might use it to collect all the scraps which I am cutting for a scrappy quilt then when the basket gets full I could start sewing? Fantanstic idea, hope my sewing machine enjoys the rest while I am away this week as I can see it being quite busy when I get back!
thanks for the link
this is super cute
and it was super quick too
mine is on my blog
I made one of these!! I have been loving all your idea and want to try them all...I had just finished a fall wallhanging and had some fabric left. The fabric basic is just tooooo cute...I just have no idea what to put in thise one. I think I am going to be doing these for christmas gifts.
I'd love to hear ideas from ppl for what they plan on using them for.
Thanks again...Jillian : )
A basket for color coded fabric scraps????!!!!!!!!!!! Love THAT!! I've made many of these but I didn't think i could make even MORE for such a grand purpose!! Brilliant!
Hmm, why am I envisioning these stuffed with cookies?
Love your basket. I was so inspired I made one this weekend for a friend's birthday. Filled it with goodies from Bath and Body works, and it was great. I accidently made my squares 2.5 inches instead of 2, so I had to adjust the pattern to accomodate my larger patchwork area, but it still turned out great. It will be posted on my blog tomorrow if you want to take a peak.
Something like this, but on a larger scale, could be so cute for storage in a bathroom... for holding rolls of toilet paper, stacks of towels, a little one for cotton balls... what a great project.
I love it! This is perfect for organizing my daughters miniature toys. I will definitely have to make several of these.
you said you are thinking of making them to hold scraps? how big are they? or rather how tall???
they look so small - maybe b/c of the close up.
they are so cute. ;) love your greens :) ~bonnie
Different colored baskets to sort scraps into -- that's got to be the best idea I've heard all day!
