Chirimen Gathered Round Basket

I needed to sew something today.

It's reversible.
It's a quick sew.

I had two Chirimen pieces about 9" square. I picked these up at the (forgot name) department store in kyoto for 98 yen each. (82 cents).

It can be difficult to cut into vacation fabrics but this seemed the right pattern to use up most of the square with a third fabric cut as a binding.

Fun and fast.

I saw the idea on Benta's blog: Slik Stitches.

She used this tutorial.


  1. What a neat little bowl.. good job! Are you enjoying being home? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Yay! Recognised the shower cap shape straight away!!!! Thanks for the name check

  3. I'm still recovering and I am not fighting jet lag. How in the world did you get your sewjo back so fast? It is supposed to rain for the next week, so I expect I'll be back in the sewing room soon. Your basket is perfect!

  4. It's raining here. Dd having a garage sale. Don't let us forget work drama starts this afternoon.
    It was an easy sew. I needed it.
