A gal can never have too many baskets, can she??? Good thing I know how to sew them up faster than a trip to the store, lol!
In my Fat Quarter Sized Fold Up Basket tutorial I show you 3 different ways to finish the edges on your baskets... and here's one more way. I used the double overcast stitch U15 on my sewing machine. It's very likely that your machine has a similar stitch and even came with the foot that you need.
For my machine, this is foot 'M' that is specifically for use with the overcasting stitches because it has a fabric guide and 2 'stitch fingers' that keep the thread from wrapping the edge too tightly.
I even made a short (less than a minute) video to show you how the overcast foot works. :)
See where I bought my Janome 14000 here.
One of my favorite things about these baskets is that they open up completely flat when I'm not using them. But that's like never because I need a basket for everything! :)
