Here is a cute hand made  cookie basket I sewed as a gift  for my neighbour, to  serve the cookies during this festival season.With the little scrap  of fabric you have, you can sew them in to any size you want. I had a felt piece of 8 1/2 inches in width  so I had to sew according to this measurment. This turned out to be  an ideal size and can  use not only for cookies,but for several other stuffs like bread ,buns etc.

The bottom felt has to be a little bit thicker than the side boarders.I have done scallops for the edges,if you like there is an option to sew beautiful scalloped 1/2 inch  lace around the edges.

I am pretty sure she is going to love this gift.

I got four  used (one side) A4 paper and glued them to gether. Draw a square of 8 1/2"x8 1/2" .From the line  mesure 2 1/4" out from all sides and draw  another box.Cut out right round the square on the  outer line.This is the template for the cookie basket.

I used the marker pen for the photographs.If you want you can skip this.

Step 3: Cut Fabric

I had a fabric piece of 29"x17" and the width of the brown  felt I had was 8 1/4".That is why I decided to make this size.Any way this is an ideal size for the table.
Fold the fabric in to two the right side facing inwards.Place the template over pin it, and cut the fabric.

Step 4: Tracing

Place the cut out fabric along with the pinned template over the carbon  right side facing upwads  and  trace out the 8 1/2"x8 1/2" square on to the fabric.Remove the template away and pin both pieces together ,then  trace out the other side of the fabric too.
