Fabric storage baskets

Fabric storage baskets


Happy Friday!! I want to share my fabric basket idea today.

These baskets measure 6 x 3inch and about 3inch tall.

Pretty good size to store your handmade card, tag albums or washi tapes as I do. They I are very handy and cute to store anywhere.



all seams are 1/2inch except opening. Opening doesn’t have seam.




for inner fabric, allow about 1inch seam for opening.
















Fold inner fabric like bias and secure with pin.




I stitched by hand but sewing machine is ok.


















Happy sewing!



  1. Adorable baskets! Thanks for posting!

  2. I looooove these! So zakka and cute! Do you know the size of the rivets you use? And do you buy them in the U.S. or overseas? I have some short ones but want to buy longer ones that will go through multiple layers like this. I’m so glad I found your work! I’m following you on Instagram, where I’m elnorac 🙂

      Hi, Elnorac!
      you are one of my favorite you know. 🙂

  3. I like your fabric basket. I would like to make one and would like to know what you used between the outside and lining fabric? Is there batting? Interfacing? If so, firm, med? In the assembly photos it looks like there is but I don’t see a reference to the materials. Can you share that?

      I used batting because at that time I ran out of fusible batting. I recommend medium fusible batting.
      and for inner side, I ironed interfacing to add more firmness. Both I bought them at Joann.

  4. Really darling bags, but could you give more measurements? It doesn’t say how wide the basket is or the lining measurements. I’d love to make it and I’m going to play around with the measurements but it would really help to know more!
    Thanks for the tutorial!

      the numbers on the templets are without seam allowance.
      I hope it’s helpful.
      I usually make whatever I have and use a letter paper to make a templete. Try to fold a plain paper the size you like then use as templete. That’s how I do every projects. 🙂

  5. Anyway to follow you by email??

  6. Ingenious design! Love that the seams are on the side, not the corners.

  7. These are WAY TO CUTE!!! Found you on Sew Can She 🙂
