Fabric baskets are a cute and simple sewing project to use up fabric scraps or a great way to decorate for holiday seasons depending on the fabric you use. I love fabric baskets for pot planters, as they are a cheap way to decorate and ceramic planters are not cheap.

This fabric basket tutorial shows you how to make the baskets reversible so the possibilities to change the style easily are endless.

These baskets can be used for so many different purposes the designer suggests the following:

  • A baby shower – fill with baby lotions, shampoos and creams or a couple of cute outfits.
  • Women’s birthdays – fill with chocolates, or place a beautiful flowering pot plant into the basket.
  • For men’s birthdays have baskets prepared in masculine blacks, greys and whites and fill with an assortment of nuts, salami, cheese and biscuits.
  • For kids’ birthdays fill with an assortment of small toys.
  • For the elderly – fill with a few jars of special treats.

You’ll want to use these fabric baskets around the house for craft and sewing supplies, keeping hair accessories together, scarves neatly rolled, kids socks in one place and loads more.
