Yayyyyy! I’m sharing this fun (and free!) basket and tray pattern that I made up using Carolyn Friedlander’s new fabric collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics – Euclid. It’s printed on gorgeous essex linen and I think it might be my favorite collection of hers yet.
I was dreaming up what project to make using Euclid and a basket kept coming to mind. The Euclid designs are perfect for home dec items, have you seen these gorgeous napkins? I definitely need some of those in my life. I think the basket and tray are so useful and you can never have too many places to hold all your favorite things, right?! Plus, this set is perfect for pairing up and displaying on your coffee table, dresser, or even in your sewing space. They’re so great for collecting and displaying small treasures. I especially like to think that the basket is perfect for yarn whereas the tray fits a small scissors, thread, and notions so nicely.
They’re a fun almost origami-like shape and the leather handles and rivets look so amazing. You could definitely sew fabric handles or get creative using thick wool felt and hand stitch them on. Either way, I hope you’ll use this free pattern and have some fun with it! I can’t wait to see what you make.
Have a great weekend!
