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.

Step 1: Requirements

Fabric  of your choice 
Thread to match
Top pins
Mesuring tape
Silk thread for embroidery
Sewing Machine
Baby ribbon
 A4 paper
Marker pen
