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
Fuse the wadding to the wrong side of one piece of fabric with adhesive spray.
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.
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].
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.
Fold each triangle in half and sew.
Repeat with all four triangles. You’ll see a box shape forming.
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.
And your bread basket is finished!
