Bread Basket by Debbie Shore

This handy basket is perfect for bread sticks and biscuits, make a smaller one for eggs, or use it as craft room storage!

Use a ¼” seam allowance



  • 19” square outer fabric

  • 19” square lining

  • 19” square wadding

  • 4 x 6” strips of ribbon to make bows

  • Repositionable spray fabric adhesive

  • Erasable marker pen and ruler

Fabrics are Debbie Shore's 'A Cottage Garden' by Craft Cotton Company


Step 1

Fuse the wadding to the wrong side of one piece of fabric with adhesive spray.

Step 2

Sew the two fabric pieces right sides together, leaving a turning gap of about 3” in one side. Snip across the corners, turn the right side out and press.

Step 3

Top stitch close to the edge, this will close the opening. Then sew another two lines ½” and 1” from the first. [You could carry on quilting like this all across the fabric if you wish].

Step 4

Measure and mark the centre of each side of the lining with your erasable marker pen. Measure and mark 3” either side, then 3” down, to form a triangle. Repeat on all four sides.

Step 5

Fold each triangle in half and sew.

Step 6

Repeat with all four triangles. You’ll see a box shape forming.

Step 7

Fold the points of the triangles to one side and hand sew. Turn the right side out, fold over the points and hand-sew a bow to each flap to secure.

Step 8

And your bread basket is finished!
