Divided Basket || Driftless

Divided Basket using Driftless fabric - NoodleheadLove the flexility of Essex (cotton linen blend) fabric for so many different reasons, but the ability to use it with several types of sewing projects makes it one of my all-time faves. In this case, it’s perfect for a home-dec type project like this Divided Basket. Speaking of making lots of samples of a project, I think the Divided Basket might be up there in the top 5 for me! I can’t count how many I’ve made.

They’re fun for gift giving, keeping organized, and trying new fabric combinations! I almost always make them for gifts. I love giving them as baby gifts, but I’ve seen so many creative gifting uses over the years. I think one of my favorites was seeing a kitchen bridal shower basket filled with kitchen towels and baking necessities.

Here are a few examples of the Divided Basket’s I’ve made over the years!

Springy Divided Basket
Goodnight Moon Divided Basket
Briar Rose Divided Basket

Anyway, I had fun making this Divided Basket a few times using Driftless. The main exterior fabric is this Railroad Denim from Robert Kaufman. It’s such a nice weight and texture! I’m not sure I used it before this, but I definitely need some more! Of course I almost always love anything that’s denim or chambray, so go figure. Do you have a go to substrate?

Over the next few weeks I’ll be filming a complete video of how to make the Divided Basket, it’ll be available in my shop as soon as it’s ready. I’m excited since it’s one of my favorite projects to make! I’m announcing it here because it’ll give me some accountability to get it going!

    I’ve made four so far..one for my best friend and three for my daughter who’s expecting a boy in may. I adore this pattern. It’s easy and you can get really creative with it.
