Fun and easy to make, these nesting baskets in three sizes will hold a multitude of treasures. When empty, they will stack inside each other for neat and compact storage.
Each container has a sturdy lid so the baskets may be stacked for attractive display. ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable gives great body and stability to these baskets and makes their construction extra easy and quick.
Instructions are included for baskets in three sizes with optional handles for carrying as well as an optional see-through pocket for a label.
Perfect for the sewing room, bathroom, nursery, child’s room, craft room — or anywhere in the house!
Note from Annie:
Special thanks to Kaitlyn, Cheryl, and Diane for making the cute baskets shown. It was fun to see the various color and fabric combinations that each of these ladies selected. We “oohed” and “aahed” over each set. We hope they’ll inspire you, too!
Don’t you love the fun snowman set of baskets that Diane made? We think that these baskets would be perfect for storing Christmas cards, ornaments, candy, and more. A label made with a piece of chalkboard fabric would be perfect on the side of the small basket which makes the top of the hat. Diane found the snowflake embellishments at a local craft store. She used brown pipe cleaners for the arms and buttons for the eyes and nose.
The pattern calls for ByAnnies Soft and Stable which is a lightweight foam which gives body to the bag. This material is available in the UK, but can be quite expensive. A good alternative to this is Vlieseline Sew In Foam which is available within this shop.
