Stash Baskets


I just finished up this Stash Basket using some leftover fabric! Perfect colors for my work office. It's Kwik Sew Ellie Mae Designs #107. The project was fairly straight forward to make. I used Pellon Peltex 70 interfacing - and there are two layers, so a #16/100 needle and a sturdy machine are a must. My Bernina chomped right through it!

The interfacing is NOT fusible. I suppose you could get the one-sided fusible (Peltex comes as sew-in, one sided fusible, and two-sided fusible). I imagine that the one-sided (I think it's the 71) would work, but it is more $$$. I sprayed 3M Super 77 to adhere the fabric to the interfacing and it worked like a charm. 

When I got done with the basket, it was a bit wonky. A quick pressing took care of that and flattened it right out.


There are three sizes of baskets that come with the pattern. This is the small one - it measures 11" x 6" x 3 1/2" - about the size of a shoe box.
