Batik Petit Four Basket

Do you like to make fabric baskets? If you have followed me for any amount of time you know how much I do and how many I have made. This little batik Petit Four basket is so cute and has all kinds of uses!

My dear friend and neighbor gifted me some beautiful batiks that came all the way from Alaska (thank you Diannia). I have them sitting in this little basket on my window sill and one of these days (soon) I’m going to use them in a project.

If you have a little one or a grandchild you should really make this little basket. My granddaughter loves filling it with toys and stuffed animals.

I went outside just a bit ago and took this photo of the Petit Four basket filled with potpourri out on the deck rail. Can you see the layer of frost? Much better than snow!

This little mini batik Petit Four basket takes no time at all to make. The pattern isn’t mine (link below) so you’ll have to watch the video that Kimberly from The Fat Quarter Shop did with Annie or get the free pattern.

You use a foam stabilizer to give the basket body. There are several types and I used the Bosal In-R-Form Foam stabilizer. These photos are sure teasers aren’t they!

Be sure to read or watch the instructions carefully. Notice how I marked the seam allowance in the step as it wasn’t the normal ¼”.

I have used this foam stabilizer for several projects including a tote that is used to carry all of little Sadie’s things when we go on a trip. I’ll have to take some photos of it and share it.

The Petit Four basket pattern that is available at ByAnnie’s as a free pattern. I actually found the video first that Annie did with Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop.

You can go to YouTube and watch Kimberly and Annie show just how easy it is to make the batik Petit Four basket.

  1. LOVE the Petit Four Basket! Thanks so much for sharing and the video Tute as well – definitely on the ToDo List!

    Annie has published different variations for these baskets. Use the templates and directions from fat quarter shop. They seem to work the best. Really cute. I used the foam auto liner sold at Joann’s. A lot less expensive, But make sure the non foam side of liner touches machine. If the foam side is down, the fabric will not move through the machine. Guess how I know this?
    Fun project and very good video. Making them for guild boutique.

    1. Great tips Sue, I made mine following the video. I think I learned about the foam tip somewhere else. I’ll have to check out the kind that Joanns has as I really love it for placemats and baskets!

  3. I’ve always wanted to try baskets. This winter I do not have any “must do” quilts and I want to just play around in my stash. Maybe I need a play date with you to learn some new things!

    Hello Connie, It has been quite awhile since I have made any fabric baskets, but they were fun to make. I am almost finished ironing the fabrics I have chosen to use for the baby quilt pattern of yours that I have chosen to make. I am starting with 20 blocks and trying to use a different fabric in each piece. I still have 15 more pieces to cut out. Part of the blocks are already sewn together though, so I should have the quilt top with these 20 blocks done today. From there, I will decide if I will make more blocks or just create some borders. Thank you so much for sharing this great and fun quilt project Connie! Have a spectacular day…oh, I almost forgot…you should see the frost we are having here! Plus, brrrrr cold! I am already so ready for spring! Again, have a great day!

    I remember seeing this basket..i don’t like “wasting” fabric and will have to think about this. My grandbaby’s rooms is in John Deere and i think baskets for Easter in a few sizes will be really cute and that is my plan. Thanks…this article just gave me that idea! 🙂
