The baskets are super easy to create.

The pattern is by the Fat Quarter Gyspy. Pattern does not include pop-up springs. They are sold separately.

The pattern includes step-by-step instructions for making three fun sizes - Small (5 1/2"), Medium (8") and Large (10 1/2") baskets.

Beside the pattern you will need:

Fabric, Craf-Tex Extra Heavyweight Stabilizer or equivalent, 4 Large Safety Pins, Fusible Medium Weight Stabilizer, Small Scissor, Marking Pencil and Pop-Up String

Compatible Pop-Up Springs for basket: FQG121 Small Pop-Up Refill, FQG123 Medium Pop-Up Refill, FQG124 Large Pop-Up Refill

It folds away for easy storage by collapsing the spring and tying the handle ends together.

Craft-Tex is used in the handles to give them stiffness.  After storage just press the handles flat with a hot iron and they will stand up over and over again!

These pop-up baskets are so versatile and not only for Easter. Make them for gifts. Make for a baby shower and fill with baby items. Make for a flower girl to carry. Make for Halloween. Or just make it for your home.

SEW MUCH FUN!
