3 Scallop Berry Basket

Scallop Berry BasketThe idea behind this is similar to the first sewing tutorial I featured. This one, however, has a more cutesy appeal because of its scallop rim and exposed contrast color lining. I love the addition of the ribbon trim, too.

4 Braided

You can make this by braiding strips of jersey fabric. This is a wonderful project to make if you have a gazillion of unused t-shirts.

5 Hanging Baskets

Hanging BasketsIf you don't have space on the floor for handmade baskets, going the hanging route is highly recommended. The most important “ingredient” here are Plexiglas sheets. They are responsible for keeping the bottom of the baskets flat and stiff. You can get them by the window section in the hardware store.

7 Burlap and Rosette

Burlap and RosetteIsn't this lovely? To make this, burlap was cut into strips and woven like a basket. The rosettes were then hot glued to one side for a more rustic chic effect. To keep your burlap from fraying, you will want to iron it to another fabric using fusible bond before weaving.

8 Simple Square

9 Button Boxes

Button BoxesHere is another berry box-inspired fabric basket idea. Instead of binding, the sides of this basket are held together by buttons and embroidery floss. Clever, right? I think this will look nice in dark plain fabric and chrome style buttons.
