Please come to class with the following cut:
- 2 ½” fabric strips for the basket sides
- Double sided fusible batting cut to 2” strips or roll of pre-cut 2 Ό” wide batting
- Fabric and craf-tex squares cut as stated in bullet points above for size basket making
- 1 Ό” strips for binding of basket bottom (2 for sm & med, 3 for large)

*If you want to accomplish more in class, press your strips according to the pattern directions prior to class. It will take about an hour to do the pressing (depending on the size basket you make). When pressing, use steam and hold iron on each section being pressed for at least 5 seconds. Pressing longer will NOT make it stick better. Pressing longer will make the fusible melt and absorb into the fabric. Then the fusible will be gone. Pinning one end of the strip/batting to the ironing board while pressing makes it easier. Wearing the thermal thimbles will protect your fingers from the steam shooting out of the iron.
