Let's Make A Quick Basket!

The One Hour Basket

Are you in the mood for sewing, but don't have half  of a day to sit down and sew... sew ... sew?
Then we have a fast and practical project for you!

See what we have made in our Sew Along { Here}

The project:   One Hour Basket  Tutorial        by Kelby Sews  {here}

This is the One Hour Basket that I made:

Fabrics:    Denim bottomweight fabric
                Le Cerise Blueberries fabric by Susan Winget 
                Pellon Fusible Fleece  PFF987

Basket size:   7 inches tall x 11 inches x 6 inches deep

Quilting:  3/4" wide lines on the diagonal (one direction).  I wanted to add a little texture to the outside of the basket, and a little stiffness.

I love using denim for baskets

A perfect home for my finished 6 1/2 inch Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt blocks

This truly is a fast, and FUNctional, basket to make.  I think when I make another basket, it will go even faster, because I will have had my material chosen already!!

Amanda, The Patchsmith, will be making her own One Hour Basket next week ... in her beautiful Patchsmith style, I am sure!!   You'll want to hop on over to her blog to see what she has whipped up when it is completed!

If you are making your own One Hour Basket, or any other Across The Pond Sew Along project, share it with us in our Flickr group!!  {here}

Well, I ended up making a second One Hour Fabric Basket already...
I am giving my Blueberry basket as a giveaway at our family reunion this weekend.

I decided to make the replacement basket for myself with orange fabrics and black denim.  I had some DS Quilts fabrics, from my Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt blocks fabric stash.

Orange DS Quilts fabrics and black denim make up a bright basket .... for me!

I better not leave this on the windowsill...    it's just big enough to fit
 a little black kitty cat!

I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Cute baskets! I went to grab the tutorial and found that I already had it in my Craftsy pattern list!! I better get to making one. And I like your addition of the top trim. Looks nice.

  2. These baskets are all over blogland and I love each and every one! I've had the pattern since I saw the very first one, what am I waiting for?

  3. I like the blueberry one, and how you added a border to the outside. Lovely!!

  4. LOVE the denim and the borders! These baskets are lovely, Susie!!


  5. I love them both and it would be really hard to give away either. I better get a-making!

  6. These turned out great! I have this on my to do list and will be trying them out really soon. I love that pop of color at the top!

  7. Your baskets are so cute Susie! I bet the blueberry basket was a big hit at your family reunion! I hope you had a lot of fun there!
