Goose Tales Halloween Fabric Basket

Hello everyone!! I’m back again with another cute sewing project for you. Are you ready for Halloween?

I know its months away, but since we’ve been on this stay at home order, days are combining with each other, and before you know it, Halloween will be here. I just hope we can celebrate it.

With that said, I used a brand new fabric collection called Goose Tales by J. Wecker Frisch.

Take a look at my Goose Tales Halloween Fabric Basket:

I love this fabric basket. It’s beautiful and deep for all of the candy my niece will collect.

Let’s take about this fabric collection:

Goose Tales was created by J. Wecker Frisch, a designer that I met last year when her Paperdoll collection was released. I actually won the entire set and bunch of other goodies in a contest. That was fun. I followed her ever since.

This collection contains 24 different prints, 2-panel pieces, and 1 border stripe.

Let’s dive into how to create your own fabric basket:

Materials:

1/2 yard of Goose Tales Book Spines Border Strip (outer fabric)
1/2 yard of Goose Tales Text Black (lining fabric)
Fusible Fleece Interfacing
Button
Pins
Ruler
Rotary Cutter
Cutting Mat
Scissor

Instructions on how to create a Goose Tales Halloween Fabric Basket:

Cutting fabric:
