If you have a busy house, you know how often items find their way upstairs when they need to be down and vice versa. Throwing those loose items on the stairs to take later is unsafe and messy. Keep your stairs clutter-free with this decorative and functional stair basket. Just load with all those items that need to go upstairs (or down!) and take them all in one trip.
This basket is fun to make and the concise instructions and many illustrations will guide you step-by-step through this process.
There is a roomy interior, optional outer pockets for even more storage, and a two-handle design for grab-and-go ease.
Accommodates stairs up to 8 1/2″ high and at least 7 1/4″ deep. May be adapted for unusual stair sizes, but usually not necessary as most stairs are standard sizing.
The designer rates her project as suitable for advanced intermediate sewers.
When you have finished making your own Stair Basket it will measure approximately 15.5″ by 14.5″.
