Divided Basket by Noodlehead

Sep 24, 2015

A while ago, I purchased a NoodleHead pattern pack from Massdrop.  It included a few of Anna's favorites, including the Divided Basket Pattern.  I decided to make one after seeing all the lovely baskets everyone else has been making. 
I wanted to use this basket to hold my patterns when I set up a pop-up shop when speaking at guilds and such.  So I used Anna's recommendation for the heavier interfacing.  Unfortunately, when I was finished I found that the basket is still too soft to hold so much heavy paper.  (Patterns are incredibly heavy when in bulk!)
 
So now, I have this lovely basket and I'm not sure what to put in it yet.  I'm sure I'll be able to find something..... 
My favorite thing about Anna's pattern are the details.  For this basket, I made the fabric covered handles with cotton webbing.  I love the way this looks.  The webbing adds some texture to the basket.  I did, however, sew them in backwards!  The webbing should face the opposite way.
Fun pattern!  I can see making some of these as gifts.

  1. I wonder if the foam interfacings by either Annies or Pellon would give the support you need. Pretty basket!

  2. I use "canvas as my interlining in bags and it makes them pretty sturdy - you could try that along with decorator weight fabric for the outside and quilt cotton for the lining

    1. Sharon- Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give those a try the next go around. You're right, I'm sure there's a way to make this more sturdy.

  4. I've made the Divided Basket with Annie's Soft & Stable and it makes the basket really sturdy. I highly recommend! (just make sure to cut the Soft & Stable 1/2 inch smaller than your pattern pieces all around - you don't want that bulk in the seam allowances).

  5. This basket is the Perfect size for storing diapers and wet wipes. I got one at a guild swap a few years ago (I had to fight to get it) and it has been sitting in my living room ever since. Just put it away until you need a baby present. They will love it!
