Organize your space with fabric baskets... sewing them is fast and easy! Here are my 20 favorite free fabric basket sewing patterns and sewing tutorials. A handmade basket makes the perfect gift too - whether you fill it with something else or not.
And... if Easter is just around the corner: don't turn down the chance to make your own Easter gift baskets. If you've noticed them lining store shelves lately, you have seen that just about any container can pass for an Easter basket these days. So why not sew a cute basket that your kid or grandkid can use to organize their bedroom later?
Here are my 20 favorite free DIY Fabric Basket patterns:
These are the easiest baskets to sew EVER and are perfect for beginners. Plus you can make them with leftover 10’’ fabric squares.
This square basket with handles is also super easy to make and guess what - it’s a perfect gift basket too!
My Perfect Rectangle Basket has dressmaker’s boning in the corners to help it stand up even when it’s empty!
Weave a basket with fabric strips! This one has easy leather handles but you can make your own handles too.
Nothing is better for organizing tools on the wall than a pegboard. Make your pegboard or other space more functional with these cute little organizing baskets.
My friend Melissa made some similar pegboard baskets but she used embroidery hoops.
Annie’s Petit Four Baskets are a winner any day and I’ll share some tips for making them even better.
Ayumi's fabric basket tutorial is the first basket I ever sewed. I think I fell for the patchwork! And then I was hooked on sewing baskets.
My Fat Quarter Sized Fold Up Baskets are very cute and I think the name explains it all. You need just a fat quarter of fabric for each side, and they fold up for easy storage when not in use.
When the FQ sized baskets were so handy and popular, I enlarged the pattern to make big IKEA cubby sized baskets. Even better!
After that I got carried away sewing mini baskets that sew together!
The DIY Walker Caddy is a basket that hangs on a walker - what a blessing!
Organize your silverware drawer (or notions cupboard) with these cute organizing baskets from the our friend Ayumi.
Hang triple baskets on your wall with this easy hanging organizer pattern.
I don’t think many will disagree with me that the Miracle Caddy free sewing pattern is the ultimate basket!
Heidi Staples Pixie Basket tutorial is another one of my favorites. I love her slightly different Pixie Cup pattern too!
If you are looking for more wall storage, these hanging fabric baskets might be just the thing.
Amy Smart's cute basket pattern is perfect for Easter... or anytime!

Does a fabric bowl count for a basket... I think so! This reminds me of Cintia’s crocheted rainbow baskets too.
And I love how Minki Kim lets the lining of her basket show on the outside like trim!
Happy sewing everyone!
