Scrappy Fabric Basket

Blogged under Fiber Fun, Free Craft Projects by Tammy on Sunday 25 January 2009 at 9:25 am

Crafting and recycling go together. This is even more the case these days now that the “go green” movement has become so popular. I saw this very cool fabric basket project over at Craftivity and thought it really fit in well the craft/recycling movement. The tutorial was written by Linda Permann, and I have to say this is a wonderful project, even if you aren’t big into sewing. Most crafters who sew will have tons of scraps, but you can also buy scrap remnants at fabric stores or you could also use old clothing that may be ready for the Goodwill pile. She shows how to make this using a sewing machine, but I’m wondering if you could make something similar using fabric or tacky glue..hmm….

    I like the fabric basket! It is very eye appealing and cool. As a designer, I could use something like that to keep my pliers, wire and misc. supplies in when working a necklace. I doubt I would ever make one, but I might purchase one, if it was for sale. Fun post!

    I love baskets and use them a lot for storage too. Back in the sewing days, this would have been pretty easy to whip up. Now, I don’t have the fabric stash I once had, so I’d probably have to go out and buy fabric scraps.
