Description

I ran this up as a quick Christmas present for a friend using Marmalade mini charms.  As I didn't want to cut the squares from 2.5" to 2", the basket is larger than the Pink Penguin Pattern, but it turned out nicely and my friend (who is interested in learning to sew and quilt) loved it.

SO cute! And I'm sure the slightly larger size will be appreciated as it holds just that much more. What kind of interfacing do you use to make it stand up? Marmalade is just perfect for everything!

Skynme

I can see why she loved it, what a beautiful gift!

Love this and this pattern is on my 2014 list! Even have fabrics pulled... I bet your friend loved it.

I love this - perfect fabrics for it. This is also on my to-do list and I'll keep your trick in mind about using the 2.5-inch squares. I'm such a rule-follower it probably wouldn't have occurred to me not to cut them down hahaha

Terryt1955 Thanks, I love Marmalade too, its so happy. I didn't realise how much bigger it would be, but it is a good useable size. I just used a scrap of wadding and not interfacing, as that was what I had handy. It is a bit thicker and therefore stands up a bit more. Probably works better as it is bigger, but usually I just use what I have around.

Skynme Thank you. It was fun to make and fun to give smiley

True HawkFan Thank you. I have made loads of these fabric baskets as gifts, and they are fun and quick to make. This was the first larger version I have made, and so easy using the mini charms. Might have to make myself one!!

Your basket came out great! I've made one with 2.5" squares as well and later made one with 2". There's a huge difference in sizes of the baskets; i much prefer the 2.5" suares. It's a more useful size!!
