Materials for DIY Fabric Basket:

How to Make a DIY Fabric Basket:

Step 1

Cut the lining and main fabric into 10¾ inches square, then cut the fleece into 10 inches square, and then cut 2 lining fabrics into 2 inches squares. Get the fleece fabric, then mark the corner 2 inches across and 2 inches down, and connect those markings with a curved line. Cut along the curved line, then fold the fleece in half lining up the edges nicely, and cut the fabric following the curved corner on the upper layer. Unfold the fabric and fold it again in the opposite way, then cut the corners following the curves on the upper layer, and unfold the fleece.

Step 2

Put the fleece on top of the main fabric making sure it’s centered, then press it down to fuse, and lay it on top of the lining fabric with their right sides facing. Stitch around the edges of the fleece, then leave about 2 inches of opening on one side, and backstitch at the start and finish. Trim off the excess fabric and curve the corners, then turn it right side out through the hole, and poke the corners. Press it down nicely, then tuck the fabric on the opening, and clip it in place.

Step 3

Topstitch all the way around the fabric near the edges, then fold the piece in half in a rectangle, and line along the fold with chalk. Fold it the other way and line along that fold as well, then line the inside of the fabric as demonstrated in the video, and fold it along the lines clipping it in place. Fold the corners together at the side, then stitch them together, prepare the buttons, and attach them to the sides of the fabric box.
