tessa basket


As soon as I came across Pink Stitches' pattern for Tessa Basket I knew I had to make one right away. After pulling tons of fabric from my stash and making a huge mess I finally decided to go with a combination of Charms linen blend fabric by Ellen Baker with green Pearl Bracelets and neon webbing for the handles.


I did a few changes while making this basket - I cut the main body as well as lining 2" longer than the pattern originally called for. I also adhered fusible fleece to the exterior and SF101 to the lining because I wanted the basket to hold its shape and stand on its own.


This was a super quick sew, picking fabric (and then cleaning up all the mess I made) was definitely the most time consuming part for me:). I so love how this basket turned out and I just adore its simple shape and the combination of linen + cotton fabric and webbing handles.

I'm going to use this basket for my knitting but I'm pretty sure I'll be making more of these super chic bags/ baskets very soon. You can purchase a pdf pattern here if you'd like to make one for yourself.

Thanks for reading. Svetlana

  6. this is terrific! I am always inspired by your colour combinations. Where did you find that scallop fabric? so far I can only source it from Tokyo and was hoping for another source closer to home....
