“great basket & perfect for what I wanted!”
You've sewn their Halloween costumes or their Easter best - now sew the basket up as well! This 4-in-1 pattern will allow you to make a ruffle flower basket, a jack-'o-lantern, a three-eyed monster, or you can sew this without the additional embellishments in your favorite fabrics. All pattern pieces are included! The basket measures 7" at the base and is about 8" tall (not including the handle).
This is a great pattern for a confident beginner with some sewing experience under her belt, primarily because you and your machine will need to handle sewing through several layers. Otherwise, all steps are explained and easy enough to follow for a new sewist!
