We have all sorts of uses for this kind of storage at our house – craft supplies, toys, electrial cords – so many potential uses!
I made a few alterations to the original pattern – I used 2 fabrics, a black canvas (5″ x 16.5″) and feature canvas (6″x 16.5). I used leather straps for handles (9.5″ each) set with 8mm rivets.
I love the look the leather straps give the bag! But don’t be fooled – they dont seem to cut the time it takes to make the basket!!
The original pattern is by @kelbysews and can be found http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/home-decor/1-hour-basket-tutorial/136408
