I’m back with a new fun and easy project! There seems to be a lot of hype around small-ish organizer projects on the internet these days and I thought my little catch-all basket would be a great addition to the fun. Once you see how ridiculously easy it is to make you will make these by the dozens and have them on hand to give as gifts to just about anybody! I think what is appealing about organizer-type projects is how versatile they are! You can use them in your sewing space for marking pens, thread snips, wonder clips, etc. You can use it inside the house in the entrance way so you have a place to drop your phone and keys when you come in. My kids love to use them for sorting their outdoor treasures like feathers, rocks, sea shells, etc. There really is no limit to what you can use this little catch-all basket for!
Let’s go over the materials I used:
In this video tutorial I teach you how to make a catch-all fabric basket. Once you see how easy it is to sew these up you will be making them by the dozens to give as last minute gifts to your loved ones. Can be for kids, tweens, and adults! Customize by using fabrics that appeal to you or whoever you are giving it to!
Supplies used in this video:
• 1 piece of fabric at 10″ x 8″ for outer part of basket
• 1 piece of fabric at 10″ x 8″ for lining fabric

• 1 piece of Pellon Flex Foam at 9″ x 7″ (you could use any non-fusible foam product as well.)

That’s it! Super basic, easy to make and a fabulous beginner project! Enjoy this fun, easy and functional project! Happy sewing and don’t forget to share this tutorial with your friends on social media! You can pin it it to Pinterest, too! We love pins!
