Fabric Baskets/Bins

There’s a ton of tutorials on how to make fabric baskets out there but I finally found one with the formula so you can customize your basket sizes.   Cut rectangles with the following dimensions out of the outer fabric, lining and interfacing using the following formula:
depth + 2 x the height  + seam allowance (0.5″)
depth + width + seam allowance (0.5″)
When you box the corners:
depth = the base of the triangle.
I made a ton of these this weekend using all the fabric that my cousin gave me.  I added handles on some of the larger ones and made smaller rectangular ones for my desk.
