Sometimes I need a quick finish project. This weekend, that project was the Pixie Basket.
Using fabrics from my Stash Builder Box, I stitched together this little basket in under an hour.

I made the top of the basket a little bit different than the tutorial by folding the lining over the seam allowance so that it creates a nice little border along the edge of the basket. To do this, you need to make the lining 1/4″ taller than the exterior – that would be 4 1/4″ by 8″. To keep the lining in place, I stitched in the ditch along the seam joining the lining and the top piece of the exterior.
My new Pixie basket will live next to my sewing machine to corral the notions I like to keep within reach.
