Pattern Description:

You can find a step-by-step sew along for this project on my blog!

If you have a busy house like mine, you know how often items find their way upstairs when they need to be down and vice versa. Throwing those loose items on the stairs to take later is unsafe and messy. Keep your stairs clutter-free with this decorative and functional stair basket. Just load with all those items that need to go upstairs (or down!) and take them all in one trip.

This basket is a fun to make and the concise instructions and many illustrations will guide you step-by-step through this process.

There is a roomy interior, optional outer pockets for even more storage, and a two-handle design for grab-and-go ease. Accommodates stairs up to 8 1/2" high and at least 7 1/4" deep.

Since the basket is made from only rectangular pieces, no measurements instead of actual pattern pieces are given.
