  • How to sew a fabric basket. Frozen Style Fabric Basket - Step 1
    Step 1

    I cut out x 2 pieces of fabric the same size.
    and 1 thinner piece of voile which will is the fold down piece.
    1 suedette and 1 velvet,
    *On hindsight I would recommend using stiffening on any thinner fabric, the velvet it was hell to work with*
    i haven't given sizes as you can do to any size you want really. great for using up small pieces of fabric.
    I would usually do a contrasting fabric but I went with a suedette fabric for the outside and velvet for the inside.
    *I thought the suedette would be stiff enough but no I don't think it was*

    I stitched a piece of sparkly fabric onto the velvet material which is going to be on the inside. I only sewed the top and bottom of the Leave the side seams open to put the sparkly in later.

    I put loads of snowflake confetti inside the pocket that was made earlier in step 2 while it was still pinned together, then I sewed all the way across the 2 pieces of fabric so it was like one big piece with an opening at each end.
