Pequenos cestos: item #2....check!
This is one of the projects on my list and that I can finally check! I decided to make a step by step instructions of these practical storage baskets. I made these with 10" square fabrics and other one with 12" (on the last photo). For each basket you will need two 10" squares of fabric for the outside, two 10" squares of fabric for the inside and two 10" squares of batting. To make them bigger or smaller just change all of the measurements.
Make a sandwich placing the batting first, then the outside fabric, with the right side of the fabric facing out and then the inside fabric with the right side facing it. Afterwards just sew on one of the sides.
Repeat this operation with the other set of fabrics and then, opening them, face the right sides of both rectangles and sew all around them leaving a small opening on the bottom of the inside fabric so that later you can turn your basket around. Backstitch in the beginning and in the end.
Open the four corners and secure them with pins.
Draw a line in each one of the corners at a 2" distance from the outside line. Sew on top of each line, backstitching in the beginning and in the end.
Cut out each one of the corners at a 1/2" distance from de line and turn your work around.
Close the opening left on the inside fabric.
Put the inside fabric inside and sew all around the basket.
Here they are, the big one and the small, ready to go into action with the million things one needs at a baby diaper changing table!
