Fabric basket

This patchwork fabric basket is made based on the easy-to-follow tutorial from Pink Penguin. I've been wanting to sew this fabric basket for a long time... and I finally had a chance to make it! Pink Penguin's tutorial is very clear, and the new PDF version tutorial was very helpful for me :)
The fabric basket finishes up in a compact size, which is a perfect size for me to store my sewing essentials inside the basket like this.  This way, I can carry my stitching supplies wherever our kids play around the house (kitchen, living room, backyard, and even in my car ...!)

I really like how the basket turned out.  It's also a good way to use your leftover scrap fabrics.  The patchwork squares are in 2" x 2" sizes, or approximately 5 cm x 5 cm, and you will need 24 of them (plus some additional fabric for the handles, inside, and the basket bottom).
