Make basket style storage and carrying bags in 3 SIZES using this PDF SEWING PATTERN. This pattern is delivered by download and nothing is physically mailed to you.

This is a 1-2 HOUR PROJECT for those with sewing experience, a wonderful way to bust your stash, and the finished bags are useful for storing all sorts of things.

Use them for project bags for knit, crochet, or other craft projects. They are also wonderful for stashing just about anything else that fits inside them. And of course, they make awesome gift baskets!

Besides being super simple to sew (and quick to make!), these fabric bags are machine washable, fully lined/reversible, fold down fairly flat when not in use, and are durable.

These are not stiff bags, but designed to be floppy so they fit in all sorts of places and also so they can be washed as needed. You can add interfacing to the handle without any issue, but if you use it for the bag body there are not enough seams to hold the interfacing in place in the laundry and the interfacing can separate from the fabric making the bag look permanently wrinkled.

The bottom is NOT boxed (see photos), but made with a fold in the fabric. This is both super easy and a fun thing to know how to do for other sewing projects. If you have my Grocery Bag pattern this is the same type of construction.

The handle is sewn separately to keep pressing to a minimum and make the project quick and easy to complete. It also gives you lots of options for mixing and matching fabrics.

You'll receive instructions with text descriptions and color photos. Pattern pieces for the handles are included and the dimensions for the bag body pieces are provided.

The instructions are for cotton linen blend canvas fabric. Denim, light/medium weight canvas, duck, and other mid-weight fabrics are fine too. They can also be made with quilting cotton, but you might want to back the exterior in a layer of muslin to give it more body. If you make it in upholstery or other heavy fabrics, you'll want to box the bottoms (instructions not included) instead of sewing them the way they are in the instructions.

The pattern document is a PAPER & INK FRIENDLY 9-PAGES: 6-pages of text and color photo instructions + 3-pages black and white pattern pieces with the handle piece in 3 sizes. The dimensions are given in the instructions for the rectangular bag body pieces.

The pattern is in PDF format and is available for INSTANT DOWNLOAD once your payment is processed. After your payment etsy will email you a link to where it can be found in your account (you > purchases and reviews > find the order > click the download button).
