The perfect basket for gift-giving this holiday season! There are four different sizes to fit a variety of gift options from small housewares for a hostess gift, or dog treats for your dog-walker/groomer to home made or decadent treats for a babysitter, neighbor or friend.
A link to a 20-minute video tutorial is included in the instruction pdf. The video walks through the stitching of the baskets, assembly, and adding the optional tabs and handles.
Each basket is completed in a single hooping with no additional sewing - the process uses the stitch-and-flip method so you don't need to remove the hoop except once to trim the fabric. When the stitching is finished, open up the basket, add the fusible stabilizer, iron it in place, and the basket is complete! Recommended fusible stabilizers to give the basket it's sturdy shape are Pellon Peltex 71F or Pellon 526 Decovil Heavy.
Also included is a set of cork/vinyl tab, side handle and top handle designs; they each stitch in one color and can be riveted to the basket when it is complete.
They are stitched using two pieces of quilters weight cotton in eight color stops with between 3400 and 8300 stitches each.
