Just so ya know - I made this last year for an easter basket and it is REALLY small, a lot smaller than the pics make it look. I think it held like 4 eggs!
You can probably make it bigger, but it wont stand up as well unless you use that very stiff interfacing, and that stuff is expensive (in that case it would be wayyy cheeper to just buy those $5 fabric cube shaped bins from target)
It is super cute though!
Oh and there are lots of tutorials for fabri binx/ boxes/baskets - just google 'fabric box tutorial' or whatever and a few will come up.

|courtenay_e||Yup. I got it from weallsew.com., but googled the title (patchwork fabric basket tutorial) and came up with the pink penguin blog. It's the same one! Enjoy!|

|CorbinsMama||Old towels are a great idea! You could even use one as a beach tote!|

I'm NEARLY done with my "sewing for hire" for the month, and when I am done, I'm gonna try one out (yes only bigger--to fit on their shelves and store toys and the like).
Glad you like the site!

Awesome! My DC will love these. Adding too my todo list. But larger..... I can see making tons of these (I have tons of batting scraps).
K-mom3 To make them pretty study you will probably need an extra layer of something. Old fleece blankets, old towel, extra layer of denim....

So cute.... I wish I could sew...
I wonder if you skipped the batting, if you could make a purse??

|luv-my-boys||another idea is if you have any old outworn denim jeans (my boys go thru tons each yr) I actually save them to make denim rag quilts but the scraps from them could easily be used in these baskets. Those are some cute baskets I'll have to keep the link in my ever growing craft "to do" list|

So, I "friended" weallsew.com on facebook, and get updates periodically (COOL site, friends!), and found this basket tute in my newsfeed. I just built shelves in my kids' closets and was chagrined at the cost of baskets or bins to put on the shelves to organize the kids' stuff...only NOW I can make them myself. When didn't I think of that!? I have a TON of scraps that I can use that will coordinate with their rooms' decor, and the baskets are SO CUTE! And I believe they would be easily enlarged or made smaller, by simply changing the size of the patchwork squares.
Take a look!
