Hour Basket :: Charm Square Version

I've been having so much fun with Kelly's Hour Basket pattern lately - it goes together so quickly and it's fun to change the sizes up and see what different looks/uses you can get out of it. I tried a small one today and it turned out to be the perfect size to hold 5" charm squares!

The measurements I used are shown above. I used Fusible Fleece on the exterior pieces and Shape Flex on the interior ones. I always cut my interfacing 1/2" smaller than the fabric to reduce bulk in the seams - just my preference!

I sewed the sides and bottom with a 1/4" seam allowance but 1/2" on the top (just to make sure the handles were secure. I tried 5/8" grosgrain ribbon for handles  cut 8" long and I like the look but the are a little floppier than the webbing.

Another fun use of this great pattern and I'm sure not the last version I'll be trying :-)
