If you’ve been around here long enough, you’ve seen a parade of Divided Baskets over the years. I can’t say I’ll ever tire of making them. They’re fun to feature my favorite prints and they’re quick to sew – but not boring. Not boring is essential to me! I think that’s why I like bag and accessory making, always something different.
You know I love a basket for gift-giving. Dreaming up gift ideas to put in these Divided Baskets is always a treat! I love thinking about things to include that would make a unique gift. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever shared a basket full of yarn and knitting goodies though! So when I was filling this one up, I couldn’t help but think how fun a gift that would be. Make a basket, fill it up with yarn for a certain project, include the pattern and any fun notions or needles needed and you’re all set!
Here are a few Divided Baskets I’ve sewn in the past for more inspiration:
- Driftless Divided Basket
- Gingham & Leather Divided Basket
- Butterfly Divided Basket
- Springy Divided Basket
- Rain Walk Divided Basket
- Pattern: Divided Basket (available in my shop)
- Fabric: Coneflower in Black from my new collection Quarry Trail, Cotton Linen 5 oz. Chambray, and Quarry in Seafoam (also from Quarry Trail) for the lining
- Cotton Webbing for handles available in my shop, 1.5″-wide (you’ll need one yard total – but that’s enough to make two baskets!)
