Here are a couple of (birthday) gifts I've completed in the last few days :) The baskets are based on the Pink Penguin fabric basket tutorial.
My basket construction notes: rough cut to 10 1/2 x 13, quilt, trim to 10x12.5 outer, 10x12.25 lining. Handles 3.5x7, boxed bottom measured from seam = 1.25". 1/4" s.a. for box, 3/8" s.a. for the rest of the bag
Tall pouch - quilt, trim to 10.25" x 12.25". Box bottom = 1.25" measured from seam.
