We're moving this summer! Look for Indygo Junction soon on Handicraft.com

We are so excited to share our new Pattern Review video! Amy and Betsy got together to discuss the merits of one of our best-selling patterns, the Banded Baskets. This pattern has enormous potential for customization as well as being a fantastic organization tool.

Choosing fabric to use for the Banded Baskets is fun - you can combine them in so many ways! They are a perfect canvas for showing off your favorite prints, whether small or large. Of course when we received Amy's new Vintage Made Modern fabric, we had to use it for a Banded Basket. We combined it with our Crossroads Denim to create a fun sewing organization basket.


This giveaway has ended. **Congratulations to Kristy S. who is the winner of the Banded Baskets giveaway!

I have this Vintage made Modern fabric, have not used it yet. I liked it with the embroidery and I would have to say my favorite was the SOHO Bandana Collection fabric. You got me. Now i need some. So its for sure my favorite. But, i am going to need some of the denim, that is way too useful and since I had purchased the Vintage Made Modern fabric for my new sewing studio that we just built, i think the Crossroads denim would be perfect for using as decor and some of the appliqué detail. Thank you for the video! Super cute!

Donna King on

What a difficult choice, but I think I’d come back to the very first set of fabrics you showed which is what caught my eye in the first place with these baskets. I can also envision seasonal fabrics with these baskets… seashore fabrics for taking to the beach, fall or Christmas fabrics to hold gift projects in the making, children’s fabrics to hold small toys —so many options for so many uses.

Love the Denim. These are wonderful baskets. Made a similar basket w/o a pattern using leftover pieces of two towels that I used for curtains in my bathroom. Put some loops on the baskets and hung them on my Philippine Ratan Bathroom shelf unit that stands over the toilet. They are very handy to store my brushes and extra wash cloths

The Denyse Schmidt Shelburne Falls collection is tasty, but I just can’t get away from your Vintage Made Modern group for decorating my sewing room. A group of the baskets lined up in my barrister’s bookcase would be perfect for corralling the fabric scraps in an organized fashion and would be a beautiful accent through the glass doors. The turquoise fabrics would be a great accent to the yellows that primarily decorate my sewing studio.
