Bitty Baskets, cute cross stitch fabric baskets, are a great way to decorate your home all year. Especially using the new Petite Stitches, which include FREE cross stitch patterns for holidays, seasons, and year-round décor.

All you need is a stitched piece (we recommend 10 count for these baskets), lining fabric of choice, and general sewing supplies. Follow along with Kimberly in this video for all the measurements and a full tutorial.

Note: In the video, Kimberly used a 2.0″ stitch length when assembling everything.

  1. Can’t wait to stitch the sunflower. But my granddaughter may want the bunny to be done first.

  2. Thank you so much! These are wonderful! I’ll be making little pillows to fill a basket. I’ll probably do the house first. They are all so cute it hard to choose which one I’ll do first. >3

  3. Thank you for the wonderful patterns. Something small to finish quickly! I am going to make the ‘bunny one first.

  4. I am having a stitching retreat for my friends this summer and I want to make these baskets for each one.
    What are the dimensions of the fabric for the baskets? It looks like 8″ x 16″?
    Love your clear and precise videos.

    1. That sounds so fun Faye!

      The cloth and fabric are cut to the same size for the baskets and the cloth is just one pack cut in half.

      This means you’ll want approximately 8.5″ x 17″ or 18″ of fabric and the same for the cloth for each basket.

      1. Thank you so much…I already have the fabric. So that’s why I needed the dimensions.

  5. This is the cutest idea! Your creativity is amazing, and I so appreciate you sharing it with all of us! Appreciate your free patterns as well, thank you! Happy Spring🌸

  6. I think your coming out with more Bitty Basket designs how about a fish not a cartoon one. Deer dogs and cats would be nice too
