Join Amanda Seaborne from Sewn-Up to make this versatile and compact mini Quilted Hamper designed by Beth Studley. Perfectly inspired by a vintage picnic hamper this beautifully shaped basket has any number of uses. It could make a fantastic lunch bag or make up bag made with laminated fabrics or why not use it as a craft basket and fill it with supplies. It would also make a really stunning gift basket for someone special. The pattern is aimed at experienced sewers but has over 2 dozen colour photos to help guide anyone who would like to make one.
