Candy Stripe Fabric Basket

I've been working on the 'perfect' little fabric basket to give as teacher gifts this year.  I whipped up this one just in time for the Le Challenge theme of Stripes.
 Ahhh, isn't it cute?
Handles actually cut on the bias!
  E has already claimed this one for her 5th grade teacher.
 Check out that stripe matching on the sides.
 Fully lined.
Finished size:  4" high, base/opening 4" x 5"

I am working up a tutorial on these cuties. (because the internet needs one more fabric basket tutorial, hah!)

 This last pic is for my SIL who has mentioned that scale is sometimes hard to see in the pictures, so I tried to find a common household item to photo with the basket.  Mac & Cheese, anyone?

This looks so much nicer than the fabric baskets that I have made in the past.

You can never have too many tutorials and I'm sure the teachers will love these.
