Everyone has a basket around that could use some refreshing – it’s easy to update the liner following our instructions. Don’t forget Halloween’s just around the corner and baskets make great candy dishes or Trick or Treat bags.
Beauty is really simple when you think about it. A humble spool of cotton clothesline turns into a beautiful basket with the simplest of sewing techniques. A zigzag stitch is all you need as you go round and round to produce the shape you desired. Then add some color to create the perfect home-dec accent.
Get your guest room ready for special visitors using your sewing machine, a little fabric, and a lot of ingenuity. Beginner-friendly projects include simple-to-make pillows, a thoughtful bedside basket, and a felted mug rug.
Don’t you love this basket? Look closely; can you tell what it’s made of? Barb Lake, BERNINA at Fancyworks, Marissa, IL, recycled packing paper and stitched up a sturdy basket to use for displays. She told me, “I just couldn’t send all that good paper into the recycling bin!”
