Basket Bags PDF Sewing Pattern
Sew your own fabric basket style bags with this PDF SEWING PATTERN.
This pattern includes three sizes so you'll always have a bag available for stashing your stuff. The bags are great for project bags for knit, crochet, or other craft projects. They are also wonderful for stashing just about anything else that will fit inside them!
Besides being super simple to sew (and quick to make!), these fabric bags are machine washable, fully lined/reversible, fold down somewhat flat when not in use, and are durable.
These are not stiff bags, but designed to be floppy so they fit in all sorts of places and also so they can be washed as needed. You can add interfacing to the handle without any issue, but if you use it for the bag body there are not enough seams to hold the interfacing in place in the laundry and the interfacing can separate from the fabric making the bag look permanently wrinkled (aka: ugly or ruined).
They have the same kind of bottom as my Grocery Bag pattern, which is NOT boxed, but you can box the corners, if you prefer. If you want to make these firm using fleece or foam, or if you are making them from very thick fabric (like upholstery fabric), box bottoms are recommended. The instructions don't include box bottoms, but most of you know how to do them already.
You'll receive instructions with text descriptions and color photos. Pattern pieces for the handles are included and the dimensions for the bag body pieces are provided.
The pattern document is delivered by INSTANT DOWNLOAD once your payment is processed.
