Fabric Storage Basket Tutorial

Let's get organized! Sew a stylish fabric basket using your favorite fabrics to add storage and color to your sewing space. These sturdy baskets are sized to fit folded fat quarters, but also are the perfect size for small notions, rulers, and thread. Their compact size helps them easily fit side-by-side on a shelf or in a closet, while the handle allows you to pull the basket out to see what's inside.

After a little shopping spree at Missouri Star Quilt Company, I'm so excited to put some of these baskets to good use storing some fun new notions and tools I purchased. These baskets are an easy way to corral smaller tools, so your space looks organized!

BONUS: I am so excited to partner with Missouri Star Quilt Company to offer an exclusive discount to my followers!

I used fabric from my upcoming To Grandmothers House Fabric Collection with Riley Blake Designs! This fabric collection (in stores February 2024) looks just darling as baskets sitting on a shelf and provides a whimsical touch to my storage!
