  • Now, put all four on top of each other and cut the bottom edge corners carefully. Cut them in square shape.
  • Now, you are done with the scissor work, so keep it aside and get some pins for the next step.
  • Pin two fabrics of the same kind together on top of each other.
  • Use as many pins as suitable for you. If you can stitch without pins, it is beautiful; otherwise, it is a must for the beginners to keep the stitches straight and clean.
  • After stitching the two fabrics together, you will have two hollow cylindrical shapes fabrics, one of which will be the external while the other one is going to be the internal part of your fabric basket.
  • Press the fabric after stitching to give it the shape of the basket to fit in each other effectively.
  • Now, make the right side out and the wrong side out to the internal and external fabrics respectfully.
  • Put the internal fabric under the external fabric in the same way we have told you in the above step.
  • Now stitch it from all the sides, leaving the top and a bit of space at the side of anyone’s edge.
  • From that open side, take out the inside fabric and turn the right basket way out.
  • After that step, you will have your basket right in front of you with the internal part. Keep it inside of your basket and gently press the edges to give your basket it is shaped.
  • Tada! Your fabric basket is now ready to use.

Extra step:- You can also fold back the top edge 2 to 3 inches to give your basket a unique pattern at the top if you want, or you can also keep it the way it was made. It all depends on your style and choice.

Required items

  • Two rectangular shaped clothes of dimensions say 14’×22′.
  • Fusible sheet
  • Two embroidery hoops(rings)
  • Sewing thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Iron

Now let us see how you can prepare a hanging storage basket for yourself.

Step 1 – Sew the Rectangular Clothes Along with the Breadth

Take the rectangular cloth of your desired embroidery or pattern (it can be plain also, as per your taste). Sew it using a sewing machine along with the breadth, leaving some space from the edge.

Step 2 – Sew the Bottom of the Cloth

Now after sewing the cloth and the breadth, you must sew it out along the bottom to form a pouch with an opening from only one side.

Step 3 – Iron the Cloth

Once you are done with the above two processes, then you need to iron the cloth well.

Step 4 – Sew Across the Corners

The corners at the bottom must be fixed so that the pouch is ready to open. It would help if you sewed it across the corners, ensuring that the pouch is now easily open.

Step -5 Repeat the Same Steps with Another Cloth

Remember we started with two rectangular clothes? Well, you need to replicate the same with this cloth also. Now it is totally up to you whether you want to finish one pouch first and then deal with the other or work on both at the same time. Do whatever suits you the most.

Step 5 – Attach the Fusible Sheet and the Pouch Inside the First Pouch

You need to first insert the fusible sheet inside the pouch after correctly measuring the bottom. And after that, insert another pouch, making sure that there is fusible cloth between the pouches’ bottom layers.

Step 6 – Sew the Sides

The opening of both the pouches should be rolled a bit outwards and then be sewed. After sewing, insert an embroidery hoop inside the rolled part and one hoop outside the rolled part so that there is a layer of the pouch between the two hoops.

Step 7 – Attach it to a Hook and Hang it Where you Want

You can now attach a hook to the embroidery hoop and hang it wherever you wish.
