YouÂ´re gonna need two pattern pieces. The square is the bottom of the basket. The bottom has to measure a quarter of an inch more than the smallest measure of the body piece. This will really help when sewing the pieces together.
Cut 8 body pieces. Also cut two bottom pieces.
Place bottom and body piece right sides together and pin. Sew along the line leaving a presser foot seam allowance. Using the same process, sew a second body part to the next bottom side.
You'll end up with something like this. Align the body pieces and sew starting half an inch from the top (lock the stitches). Before you sew it all, make sure that you'll stop at the cross. (Picture missing)
repeat the process with the other pieces. it'll look like this. Turn right sides together.
Do this to the rest of the pieces. I forgot to take a pic of the lime green fabric. It'll look just like the pic above.
place the second par inside the other one and fold edges. Pin.
Sew around the top. And pretty much you're done! I'm sure there are easy ways to do it. feel free to comment. I'd like feedback.
I used it to stash my thread. It looks nice too.
