Now’s your chance to make these basket style storage and carrying bags in three sizes.

Assuming you have sewing experience this project will only take you 1-2 hours to sew up. It’s a wonderful way to bust your stash, and the finished bags are useful for storing all sorts of things.

Besides being super simple to sew and quick to make, these fabric bags are machine washable, fully lined/reversible, fold down fairly flat when not in use, and are durable.

These bags have been designed to be floppy so they fit in all sorts of places and also so they can be washed as needed. Once things are inside these bagsthey will sit upright.

The bottom is made with a fold in the fabric.

The handle is sewn separately to keep pressing to a minimum and make the project quick and easy to complete. It also gives you lots of options for mixing and matching fabrics.
