I think this little basket has been such a popular project because 1) it’s easy! 2) it’s a perfect scrap-buster, and 3) the finished project is something you can definitely use. I mean, who doesn’t want a little more organization in their home? The free sewing tutorial is on Ayumi’s Pink Penquin blog. I love her organizer baskets too!
Here’s the basket I made. And here’s my disclaimer… I messed up big time and I totally love it anyway. First I must tell you that I decided to make it bigger so my measurements were not exactly what Ayumi tells you to use. Then I somehow got mixed up when I was sewing the sides together so what should have been the bottom of my basket ended up wrapping from one side around to the other. And the patchwork part ended up on the ends of the basket mostly. Can anyone really tell? Did it make it any less ‘basketier’ or any less cute? Certainly not.
Here it is holding some of my fall-colored yarns.
