I have been playing with this basket pattern for over a year now - and still am loving it. I've given a lot as gifts, and just recently I made up about 60 for a craft show -they were very popular - not to mention fun and quick to make and great scrap busters.
I did have a special request though -for a similar basket but with the dimensions to hold paper napkins.
I am not going to rewrite the tutorial that Pink Penguin did such a great job on - I am just going to give you alternate dimensions.
Sides: 2 pieces at 13.5 x 3.5 (this fits a 6x6 napkin just right -the basket "flares out" a bit as it goes up unless you have a really stiff batting or put interfacing in it) (these can be solid fabric or pieced to these dimensions. I used novelty fabrics, so did not calculate out what it would be doing it "patchwork)
Bottom: 1 piece at 13.5 x 9
Lining: 1 piece at 13.5 x 15
Batting: 1 piece a bit larger than 13.5 x 15
I used the same handle length - but used grosgrain ribbon instead of making them out of fabric.
