Biscuit Basket Pattern. Have you made these before?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
No, but that's a cute idea. Thanks Karen.
I'm surfing to find a free pattern, so far no luck
Did you ever find a pattern? I just love the look and it looks like it would be simple to make.
no, haven't found the free pattern yet

Just pin or clip your binding to the edge and sew down, then sew over on the other side, just like binding a quilt.Originally Posted by craftybear
Oh thank you I was just wondering if there was anything about this on here. You are all so wonderful. thank you
Hello. I made one of these baskets today. It was not bad inserting the Craf-Tex into the 22" and 18" fabric tubes, but it was VERY difficult to insert the Craf-Tex into the three 32" tubes!!! I also found it very difficult to keep the woven strips tightly next to each other. I kept jabbing myself with pins. I finally got the weaving done, and basted around the top to keep the edges together. The basket is thick and stiff, and it was difficult to baste around the top edge, even with the free arm. When I sewed the binding on, this was extremely difficult. I sewed the binding to the inside first, then flipped it over and sewed on the outside close to the seam, but it was very, very difficult to do this. The basket did turn out pretty. I can try to post a picture here, but I am not good at all this technology stuff. Hope the picture turns out!
