Here it is

You’ll need 3 different fabrics. Two for the outside, one for the inside. Try to match them, but they shouldn’t be too perfect together, otherwise the result will be boring. All measurements are included a 1cm seam. Iron between every step to get the best result.
1. This is what you need: •fabric A. 2 times 22x6cm •fabric B. 22x20cm •fabric C. 22x28cm • interfacing 22x28cm •2 ribbons of 6cm. Iron the interfacing to the back of the fabric for the inside of the basket (fabric C.).
2. Sew the fabric A.-pieces to both sides of fabric B. These together have the same size as fabric C.
3. Fold inner and outer layer in two. Right sides facing inwards. And sew along both sides. You’ll have two pockets.
4. For making the bottom the corners need to be sewn and cut off. Fold neatly with the seam exactly in the middle.
5.Draw the 8cm-line (see picture). Do this on both sides and with both pockets.
6. Sew and cut of the corners.
7. Turn the outer basket with the good side outwards.
8. Put the inner basket inside the other one.
9. Fold in the edges inwards 1cm. Starting with placing the seams of the two baskets on top of each other and then put in the pins around the rest of the edge.
10. Remove pin near the seams and put the ribbon, folded in two, between the two layers of fabric.
11. Start sewing the two baskets together near one of the ribbons.
Your basket is finished.

Thanks for sharing! I do it the same way but I needed some time to realize how to do it properly.
I LOVE the blue baskets on top!

Very nicely laid out tutorial! I've been making baskets too, but I think mine are bit too tall...

anneke said...

Geweldig! XOX Ik heb erg de neiging om vanavond meteen aan de slag te gaan (en als ik de dingen die ik op m'n lijstje heb staan voor vanavond [= sinterklaas-cadeautjes], dan ga ik dat ook zeker doen!)

tantehilde said...

mooi en duidelijk!

Christy said...

Very cute tutorial! This is definitely going into my must-do list!

farawayme said...

You make this sound really simple, may have to give it a go, these are lovely!

Disaster said...

These are fabulous! I was just thinking I needed to buy more baskets to hide all my crafting supplies (they're seriously taking over my life), but these are much better than anything in the stores!
Thanks so much!

Momo said...

So cute!! What a great tutorial!! Thanks for sharing!!

floortje said...

What a nice fabric!! ;-) love the mixing of the colors and patterns. We're now enjoying our trip in the states (just saw a bear in the woods during our hike, pretty scary). I managed to find a lot of beautiful fabric here, so i can make new baskets ;-)

flora said...

Thanks for the great tutorial! Your bags are so cute! I will try to make some when I have time, and if I do I will post it on my blog and let you know. Hugs.

Thanks for sharing. I have made several of various sizes.

I have also made insulated "upside down" baskets to be used as covers for GPS devices that sit on the dashboard.

Marleen said...

Hoi Kristel,

Ik heb je fabric-basket gebruikt om luxe knikkerzakken te maken. Maar ze zijn alweer uitgedeeld voordat ik een foto had gemaakt, ik ben niet zo handig in die dingen...
Hier: http://motmugje.blogspot.com/2009/03/feest-minimugje.html vertel ik over de aanpassingen in het patroon die ik heb gemaakt.

Groet, Marleen

Lisa P said...

Thank you for this wonderful pattern and fantastic tutorial. So far I've made two and plan to make many more. Here are the two I've made:

danslacuisine said...

thank you for this pattern...
ce sac est superbe et je vais en faire aussi !

lclitherow said...

Thanks for a great pattern - my first attempt at anything like this and it turned out nearly perfect - a great testament to how good the instructions are rather than my sewing skills.

Thanks for sharing!

Veerle said...

Mag ik vragen waar je de stof vandaan hebt?

vlijtig said...

Veerle, alleen van de linnen stof kan ik je de herkomst vertellen. Deze is van Kristen Doran: http://kristendorandesign.blogspot.com/

Ali, Ryan and Rayna said...

What is the finished size? I want to see if this is the appropriate size for something specific, or if I need to adjust the measurements!! Thanks!

Michelle said...

Thank you!! I can't wait to try these!

me-bear said...

Joepie!!! Het is gelukt. En ik ben helemaal blij met het resultaat. Super bedankt voor het plaatsen van deze tutorial. Deze had van te voren al een bestemming. Ik heb er m'n zelfgehaakte bloemen in gedaan. Grabbelt lekkerder dan uit een potje ;)
Heb nog wel ideeën voor enige variatie ook!
Je beschrijving was overigens super duidelijk en het ging als een trein!

Als je het leuk vindt, hier vind je mijn mandje.

Excellent tutorial. These are the cutest little baskets. I think I've managed to use just the right weight interfacing as they are fabulously sturdy.

Mama van drie said...

Is er ook een nederlandse handleiding voor die mandjes?(* bloos bloos *

Vlijtig maak ik ondertussen heel veel vlijtig mandjes ... in allerlei formaten. Op mijn blog staat een rekenmodule dat voor je uitrekent wat de afmetingen zijn van de te knippen stof. Probeer 'm zeker eens uit en laat weten of ik er iets aan kan verbeteren !

Lotte said...

dit weekend geprobeerd en begrijp niet goed wat er fout gelopen is... mijn eerste mandje was piepklein dus heb ik het opnieuw gemaakt door alles X2,5 te doen, en deze mand is héél groot... maar wel duidelijke basisuitleg!

Liesje said...

Leuk zeg, ik ga ze ook proberen maken om cadeau te geven in de crèche als de zoon zijn laatste dagje gedaan heeft! (met een orchidee in ofzo)

thingstotendto said...

i just discovered your blog while looking around for a pattern just like this one. thank you for sharing! i love your aesthetic and am happy to have found your blog :)

meraviglioso questo cesto!!!

Great basket, misread the instructions and used inches instead of CMs, luckily my fabric was stiff enough to stand on its own. A little floppy perhaps but turned out great. Thanks for the Tutorial.

Help! What is the finished size of this cute basket? Has anyone successfully changed the size? Thank you.
