  32. Great pattern. I've just purchased it and am downloading it as I type. 2 month old Grandaughter and a due any day great niece that need one made for them. Just the right week-end for sewing. A long week-end here for Australia Day. Rainy and foggy from a cyclone in north Queensland. Nice weather to be sewing.

  40. Perfect! Just this week I disassembled the change table so the nappy hanging bag thingie is no longer useful. This basket will be perfect! I purchased right away :)

  41. I've been looking for a pattern like this.

    Is the divider attached to the bottom as well as the sides?
    Either way, I'm going to purchase your pattern and look forward
    to making one.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Karen,
      Yes, the divider is attached at the bottom and sides. :)

  42. Anna, I have made my first one and posted it to your flickr group. I love this pattern. You did an awesome job with it. So easy to use and everything comes together just the way you say it should. How difficult do you think it would be to make one a little larger? I would love to try, but I don't know if I could just add a couple of inches to each piece. What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Awesome Charlotte! I think it would be great enlarged. You'd probably just have make adjustments to the divider, depending on how much bigger you make the basket! :)

  43. Great pattern! Made one this weekend for a gift and found your directions to be excellent as always! Will be making more of these for sure! Thank you!

  44. Bought mine last week and can't wait to try it! I love the covered handle option... great idea.

  47. It IS a very nice pattern. What a coincidence it looks nearly exactly like the basket pattern I made nearly 5 years ago from another blog....http://ayumills.blogspot.com.au/2008/05/tutorial-fabric-basket.htmlog. Even the handles look very similar.
    I've made several from the original instructions...

  50. Hi, is the pattern for one size basket?
    If so what size does it finish?
    I'd like to do a few in different sizes that all match but as I'm new to sewing I don't know how to resize patterns, I can just about follow one! Lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, the pattern is for just one size: Basket Dimensions: 13.5"wide, 7.5" deep, 10.5" tall including handles (7.5" tall without) as mentioned above. You can resize it, but you'll have to make adjustments to the divider piece accordingly, hope that helps! :)

  55. Thanks for the great pattern..just made one and blogged about it here: http://erickmarnae.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/divided-basket/. Thought you may like to see. I made mine with the pocket out of contrasting fabric, initially thought I'd messed it up, then decided I liked it...and then saw your post about using a contrasting fabric for the pocket. Too funny:)Do you have a Noodlehead flickr group?

  57. So, I think I'm probably too much of a novice and that must be why I'm having troubles. I cut all my piece last night, only to find out this morning that the "Cut 4" for lining really means cut two, and cut two mirror images. Oops. So, I'm choosing a new lining as my 1/2 yard won't *quite* make 2 more pieces...
    I would also like clarification about using the fusible fleece AND Interfacing on the exterior pieces. I've used each before, but never together. Which one do I fuse to the fabric first? I assume the interfacing, then fuse the fleece to that?
    Thank you in advance for your help. It's a lovely basket and I hope I end up being able to complete one!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi! You will cut 4 of the lining (otherwise you'll only end up with half a lining. I'm guessing you might have just cut them on the fold by accident (which is okay, you can just cut them in half). And yes, typically when you're cutting out pieces you have your fabric folded in half (like when it comes off the bolt, so you'll get mirrored pieces. The steps for the interfacings are detailed in the instructions, but just in case you missed it, you'll fuse on the SF101 first, then fuse the fusible fleece on top of that. Hope that helps!!

      Delete
  58. I also found that you need to cut 2 for the lining, cut 2 mirror for the pattern to work correctly. Although that gave me a hiccup, the basket turned out wonderfully!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi Christy,
    Typically when you're cutting out pieces you have your fabric folded in half - either right or wrong sides facing (like when it comes off the bolt, so you'll automatically get mirrored pieces. You're cutting it twice, but it's actually 4 pieces.

  60. I purchased this pattern and made two baskets as my grandchildren's Easter baskets. The pattern instructions are very easy to follow and I love how they turned out. Thank you.

    thank you :)

  62. I am almost done with mine but am a wee bit confused on the handles, they just don't look right...with the fold over allowance and how to pin them. I've looked at the pictures for 30 minutes and tried it three different ways....I am thinking I'll just wing it and put them between the layers and sew them with the top stitch? Do I fold over and then sew on the fold over or just sew to the piece and allow space for the fold over....urg. It's just not coming to me...thanks.

    1. Hey Rachel, sorry you're having a hard time. If you'd like to email me I'd like to help you out more. From what I can tell, you're doing the handle version with the cotton webbing? You'll fold it over by 1/4" on each long edge. Then place the webbing on top and wrap the fabric around each side, pin in place and sew along the inside edge of the fabric you just folded over. Hope that helps a little! :)

  63. I have seen several similar items on Etsy for upwards of $40. I've been debating whether I will try to figure out how to make one myself, or spend the money to buy it for my nursery. Now I don't have to do either! :) thanks so much!! I AM going to try to make it longer for a third divider -- diapers, burp cloths, and hiding that horrible wipes container/diaper rash ointment. Super excited! Thanks again :D

  64. Hi Anna:
    LOVE the look of these baskets and have been planning one in my head for weeks- just went and bought fabric yesterday! Question for you though- I assume you pre-wash your fabrics. Do you also pre-shrink your interfacing? And the fusible fleece? (can you shrink fusible fleece? I've never thought about it...)
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Steph! Great questions! You totally could pre-wash the fabrics. Just press well after you wash, even a little spray starch helps. No need to pre-shrink the interfacing. The fleece is all synthetic so it won't shrink. :) Happy basket making!

  68. Hey, just wondering if the binding should be bias, or is OK to cut on the grain? I'm guessing on the grain would be fine, as I'm not binding around any curves, but I wanted to be sure. :)

    1. Yep, straight grain binding works!

  74. Hi. I purchased the pattern, it looks great, I am on the right track with the interior. As a total beginner (first time making anything with a pattern), I have a little issue with the bottom part of the exterior. I was expecting it to have at least picture or two how to assemble the bottom part. I can guess how it goes so please confirm: join the shortest sides (the concave side parts) and sew them and then sew 2 parts of the exterior together on the side. Is that it? How come there isn't a pic or two with this? :) Thanks a bunch, I'm sure I'll be pleased with the result, I've chosen delightful color/pattern combinations :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. All clear now, I'll do it as I did the lining :) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Do you recommend quilting fabric or home decor fabric for the baskets?
