Learn to make a fabric basket
Grab a cuppa and join me live on my Facebook page as I teach you how to sew a fabric basket. Have your machine threaded up and your fabric pieces cut out and I’ll teach you the rest. There will be the opportunity after the live sew along to purchase a photographic handout to support you repeating the project again and in case you want to sew at your own pace.
It’s time to gather your supplies!!!
For a small basket you will need:
Fabric, interfacing, thread and optional trim e.g. ribbon/ric rac
4 rectangular pieces of fabric (2 in one design for the outer basket and 2 in another design for the lining)
Please cut out your fabric into the following 4 pieces prior to the live sew along….
* Outer fabric – 2 rectangles of fabric 11” x 8” (28cm x 20cm)
* Inner fabric – 2 rectangles of fabric 11” x 8” (28cm x 20cm)
* Matching thread or contrasting colour if you wish
* Optional – ribbon/trim/ric rac 60cm
N.B. Each piece is roughly the same size as an A4 piece of paper, just to give you an idea. The rectangles should be orientated in a landscape direction so if your fabric has a directional pattern to it then please cut out your fabric in the correct direction.
You will also need:
*Firm (medium-heavy weight) fusible (iron-on) interfacing – 2 rectangles of 11” x 8” (28cm x 20cm)
scissors, tape measure or ruler, pins or clips, an iron/ironing board and of course a sewing machine!
See you there!!!
Basic sewing skills required are the ability to set your own machine up ready to sew, sew a straight stitch and back (reverse) stitch. The rest I will run through during the live session. Plenty of scope to learn!!
Interfacing is a material that strengthens fabric to give it some body. This will help the give the basket some shape and stop it collapsing. You can buy online – 2 companies I know make it – Vilene and Hemline.
It is free to join the live sew along but if you would like to buy a copy of the pattern to use again after then please see the below instructions.
