Directions On How To Make Fabric Gift Baskets:

Step 1: Make a Pattern

There are several sizes you can make. This is 7 X 6 inches its considered a medium size basket. Cut the pattern 17 X 15 and then cut 4.5 square on each corner.

Step 2: Iron on the interface onto the fabric

Before you cut out the pattern you will need to interface the fabric with decor bond. You will need two pieces of fabric one for outside and lining. Cut them 18 X 22 inches. This will give you enough fabric for the pattern. Cut the interfacing smaller than the fabric. Iron the decor bond with the shiny side down and hold iron moving it slowly over the fabric.
