I had a few requests for instructions on how to make the gathered round basket that I made last week. This is an easy project and the baskets can be made in any size, are fully reversible, and are useful for so many things.
Materials: (to make a basket measuring 4 1/2 inches diameter and 1 3/4 inches high)
- 2 pieces of cotton fabric cut into circles with a 8 inch diameter (I used a small side plate as a template)
- 1 piece of fusible wadding (such as parlan or pellon) cut into a circle with an 8 inch diameter
- strip of fabric measuring 2 1/4 inch x 14 inch (for binding)
