Ask any seamstress about the storage situation in their space and you will hear over and over that there is NEVER enough. While there are many different ways to store your fabric, one of the most popular ways is with a fabric basket.
Here are a few of my most favorite patterns on the web. Click the link below the photo to follow and sew the pattern.

Comments & Reviews
Decisions, decisions!!! These are all lovely baskets. To save brain cells the best think to do,I guess, is to make one or more of each. Thanks for sharing.
I love them all, but I would love to know where the “you clever thing you” came from. Is it fabric or hand drawn?
How can I choose just one? I want them all! I am working on my craft room now. We are putting laminate flooring in there. And I will be rearranging and organizing as soon as possible. Right now, everything is jumbled up here and there. The craft room is also our pantry so it’s hard to distinguish where one starts and the other one ends. Hopefully it will look better soon.
Thanks for the great ideas! Looks like I’m going to be busy for awhile! I have a lot of baskets to make…????
I’m so glad I get your emails! I have 5 favorites, but the collapsible fabric box is brilliant.
Thanks so much!
