In this class you’ll make a practical and pretty fabric basket using cotton fabrics and wadding. This is a great follow-on project for beginner sewers who have attended our Start As You Mean To Sew On class.

Great gift idea: These lovely fabric baskets make a great reusable hamper! Just fill with bath treats, foodie delights or what about a "girls night in" hamper with popcorn, a DVD and cosy slippers? Or a box of sewing goodies for a fellow sewing friend?  Once you have learned to make one, you'll be hooked on making them!

BOOK NOW for workshops including materials! If you choose this option, we’ll send you a fabric and materials kit in the post.  You get to choose from the following fabrics for your bag outer and we’ll select a co-ordinating lining:
