Woven Burlap Basket & Fabric Flower Tutorials
Hello Everyone! I hope this past weekend was enjoyed by all. I got to spend some time with family, friends and finish a project or two. So overall, I'd say it was a great weekend!
Today I am going to share a double tutorial. Part 1 will be a burlap woven basket and Part 2 will be the twisted fabric flowers that embellish it. Together, they make the sweet little project pictured above.
Woven Burlap Basket
Stitch Witchery product that comes in a big sheet. This gave my burlap more stability and kept it from fraying too much. It also helped having the fabric ironed out nice and flat.
Twisted Fabric Flowers
Finally I hot glued the twisted flowers to the finished woven basket in a nice little grouping of three.
You could just as easily add a braided burlap handle and voila... an Easter basket! I think it would be awesome with a fun patterned fabric as the liner as well. If you don't have burlap, try something else. There are no rules... just have fun! I made this one for my Mom, so I went fairly neutral making it soft and pretty looking. Lovely!
