Small and Shorty A Tisket, A Tasket Baskets

I made a couple of fabric baskets out of fabric. These are A Tisket, A Tasket Baskets designed by Liz (Moments by Liz). If you join her Facebook group the pdf is free in the files. The pattern includes 3 sizes of baskets (small-medium-large, plus the bonus shorty size). I made a large size basket quite a while ago. I wanted to try the shorty size to see in person how it looked. It is shorter in height, but it is quite roomy in width. I also made a small size as well, using up some fabric pieces that were just the sizes I needed. I love baskets, bins, bowls to hold all kinds of items and these also use up miscellaneous sizes of fabric scraps (that I have plenty of) and they are fat quarter friendly as well. 

In addition to fabric, you need foam, batting, fleece, or interfacing to give it some structure. I used fusible batting in these, which worked nicely.

The small size measures 5" wide x 4" high x 3 1/2" deep. The shorty size measures 10" wide x 5" high x 5" deep.

This is the shorty size basket. As you can see, you quilted the lining, which helps to give the structure to the basket along with the stabilizer you choose to use.

Pretty roomy inside.

Here is the shorty on the left and the small on the right for comparison. The small is a tad shorter in height.

This is one side of the basket where the fabric has more gray in the print.

This is the other side of the basket fabric where there is more white in the print.

These were fun to make and another way to use up some fabric. Not sure if I will use these myself or add them to my craft show inventory. I do need to make myself a large one to hold all my paper templates for bags (I store each pattern piece in a large clear zip bag), so that will be the next one I make.

  1. The baskets are so cute and your fabric choices are a nice color mix.

  2. I love these so much and your fabric is gorgeous. I really like the quilted lining and how tight the lining lays inside the basket you are the best at making the lining fit well. great job. a person can never have enough containers.

  3. I just love cloth baskets and these are adorable!
