The measurements given below are for the larger basket.
Cotton Fabric of two contrasting colors- You will need 1/2 yard of each (You can use leftover scraps if you have the required dimensions).
Heavy weight fusble interfacing- 1/2 yard.
Satin Ribbon- 4 yards.
Take the required materials as shown above.
You have to cut 3 squares; two from the contrasting cotton fabric and one from the interfacing.
The fabric squares should be of the dimension, 15.5″ x 15.5″.
To reduce the bulk at the seam, we reduce the size of the interfacing by 0.5′. So, the dimension of the interfacing would be 15″ x 15″.
Cut the fabric and interfacing squares with the required dimensions as calculated above.
Fuse the interfacing onto the wrong side of one of the fabric squares following the manufacturers instructions.
Take the other fabric square and keep it over the fused fabric square, with the right sides together and sides alighning as shown above.
Sew along the three sides of the square with a 0.25″ seam, leaving one side open to turn the basket inside-out.
Poke out the corners of the square with your scissors. Press the basket down, tucking in the raw edges.
Topstitch along the four edges to close the open side and to make the sides look neater.
Cut the four pieces of satin ribbon with the required length.
Take one of the ribbons and align it along the drawn line, leaving 8-inches on both sides and pin.
Sew the ribbon onto the basket, along both its longer edges.
Secure the other 3 ribbons onto the basket by repeating the above steps.
Once the ribbon ties are sewn, fold the sides up along the line where
the satin ribbon is attached. Pinch the corners together and tie the
satin ribbon neatly in a bow.
Repeat the same steps on the four corners
and lo your basket is done!
