Item details

****SEWING PATTERN ONLY****** This listing is for the pattern to make the sewing basket.

Looking for the perfect sewing basket? Make your own to fit your stitching needs. This is a train case for quilters! Great for Applique, English Paper piecing, Hand work or for taking to class or bee. The pattern includes 2 sizes, a large for almost everything you'll need, and a small one project travel size. Design pockets for tools you have and things you want to carry. This is a paper pattern for making your own basket. They could also be used for other things - such as cosmetic bag or other craft applications.

This is an intermediate level sewing pattern. There are no tissue paper pattern pieces (like a shirt pattern would have). There is a cutting chart - in inches (not metric) similar to a chart quilters would use for cutting pieces.

Approximate sizes for finished baskets: Large: 9 1/2" x 5" x 6"
Small: 8 1/2" x 5 x 3 3/4"

Materials needed to make both sizes:
3/4 yard fabric for outside
3/4 yard fabric for inside lining
1/2 yard Soft and Stable by Annie
scraps of cotton batting or fleece
3 yards 7/8" ribbon to use as a seam binding for inside the box
a few pretty buttons for decoration
One 22" purse zipper for large bag, and one 18" purse zipper for the small bag.
1 piece of plastic canvas for base
thin elastic hair bands for thread holders (2 per bag)

You will receive a pattern for rotary cutting, with detailed instructions and illustrations.

This listing is for the PATTERN ONLY!

This pattern is for PERSONAL USE ONLY. Please feel free to make as many as you wish for friends and family, but please do not reproduce this pattern or make these for sale.

A pattern will arrive via snail mail, there is a pdf version - but it's a different listing.

Please feel free to convo me with any questions you might have.
