There are lots of patterns for fabric baskets on the internet, some people have gathered boards solely devoted to the theme on Pinterest. I wanted to use some of the scraps from my block printed fabric and I followed this tutorial which is nice and clear. It makes a small basket ideal for holding pens on my desk.
It hard to cut up a precious piece of dyed fabric but sometimes it just has to be done.
I made a larger one, it was easy to enlarge the pattern.
Once again using scraps of block printed fabric.
