With so many of us looking for scrap busting small projects – introducing the Super Simple Mini Basket!
This is a free pattern with a step-by-step sew along video tutorial to make miniature fabric baskets with handles and lining with no raw seams exposed. This is a fat quarter friendly project with several different variations for customization. You can do a quilted version, pieced version, substitute twill tape handles, or omit the handles altogether.
These would be perfect to use for sustainable gift packaging, storing small items in your craft room, and I think they might work as an American Girl Doll accessory. Finished size is approximately 4 inches in length x 3 inches wide x 3 inches tall.
Stitch lengths and seam allowances for each step are noted in the video.

Fabric used in this project is from the cute Peppermint holiday themed collection available in the Sewing Report Etsy shop. Typically, I do use quilting cotton for these types of projects but other woven substrates such as canvas or a cotton/linen blend would also work.

– Main Fabric (Material must be at least 15 x 8 inches)

The Juki DDL-8700 sewing machine is used to sew up the Super Simple Mini Baskets. You will need basic sewing supplies including a sewing machine, coordinating thread, scissors, marking pen, pins, craft clips, iron, pressing board. Having some type of miniature or smaller iron really helps pressing the small areas on the basket.
