Cloth Basket Project

Last year on vacation I picked up the reversible cloth basket pictured above at a Cracker Barrel restaurant gift shop. I took a look at how it was made and figured I could duplicate it. I made a pattern, shown bottom right, a little bigger than the purchased one, big enough to hold a 9" x 9" pan. The one I bought had cardboard between the layers for stability but I wanted something washable. I used the extra firm plastic needlepoint canvas sandwiched between layers of craft foam. Ribbon or double fold bias tape (sew together) can be used for the corner ties. The one pictured below is the one I made.
It's a nice way to bring a dish to someone's house and then give the basket to your hostess!
