From each of the sweaters, cut 1 square, 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″; and 4 rectangles, 3 1/2″ x 7″. Determine which sweater fabric you would like to show on the outside of the basket and which sweater fabric you would like to show on the inside.
Lay one of the outside and one of the inside 3 1/2″ x 7″ rectangles wrong sides together. Lay the two 3 1/2″ squares wrong sides together. Place the square layers on top of the rectangle layers, making sure the pieces that show on the outside of the basket are facing out. Align the edges of the squares with the short sides of the rectangles and pin.
