Organize your space with fabric baskets. Sewing them is fast and easy! Here are my 20 favorite free fabric basket sewing patterns and sewing tutorials. A handmade basket makes the perfect gift, too – whether or not you fill it with something else.

Fold Up Baskets from Fat Quarters

When the FQ-sized baskets were so handy and popular, I enlarged the pattern to make big IKEA-cubby-sized baskets. Even better!

After that, I got carried away sewing mini baskets that fold together!
