For Christmas this year, I'm trying to make all my gifts.  I was stumped as to what to do for my grandparents, so I decided on a fabric basket.  They can use it to organize in their house, though I think I'm going to try to steer (ha) them to using it in the car, so I've added a few little 'on the go' things to the pockets (first aid kit, wipes, hand sanitizer, etc.)





And somewhat stocked:


(no idea what they'll need krazy glue for while on the road, but they can also put this in their kitchen or something, where it might also be useful!)

Cute colour, well made. I love it!

Did you use stabilizer to make it stiff? If not, what?

Thank you so much!

Yes, I used iron-on heavy interfacing on all sides and the bottom.  There's a piece attached to the fives sides of the lining and to the five sides of the outer fabric, as well as the handles.  It's sturdy enough to stand up, but still flexible to squish into small backseats. Smiley
