You can make these reversible baskets with a half yard of fabric - (half yard of exterior and half yard of the interior fabric)
You can turn your kitchen in a picnic place that suits your style.
It is a great project for the beginner sewist. This tutorial will walk you through each step of cutting and sewing with detailed descriptions pictures and diagrams. You will learn how to sew a basic boxed bottom in two basic examples. Approximate finished dimensions:
A - cutlery basket: height 17 cm x width 18 cm x depth 5 cm (apprx. 6 3/4” x 7 1/8” x 2“) B - fruit basket: height 24 cm x width 27 cm x depth 6 cm (apprx. 9 1/2” x 10 5/8” x 2 3/8”) C - bread basket: height 6 cm x width 21 cm x depth 12 cm (apprx. 2 3/8” x 8 1/4” x 4 3/4“)
For kitchen picnic set of *three* baskets you will need:
• ½ yard for each exterior and interior cotton fabric of your choice, blended cotton or similar • Fusible interfacing (optional – if you are using lighter fabric such as medium weight quilting cotton). When using linen or denim I don’t use interfacing. • Basic sewing material
Seam allowance: 1 cm (3/8”) unless otherwise specified.
*** Conversion cm to inch: in this pattern I used 1/8" graduations when converting cm to in, so some of conversions are approximate, like 10cm = 4"
Reversibility: since these baskets are reversible, both sides can be “front” side, but I will refer one fabric as exterior (or front) and the other as interior.
