How to make a DIY felt basket

Making a DIY felt basket is a great way to add some extra storage to your home without spending a lot of money. Felt is a great material to work with because it doesn’t fray and is easy to manipulate. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors so you can find the perfect shade to match your home décor. Here’s how you can make your own:

1. Draw a pattern

Determine the size of your felt basket, then trace a pattern.

Before you begin tracing your pattern for your felt basket, you’ll need to determine the size of the basket you’d like to make. To do this, you can measure the circumference of the object you’ll be storing in the basket, or you can use a ruler or tape measure to estimate the size. Once you have the measurements, trace your pattern onto the thick felt. You can use a pencil or pen to trace the pattern, but be sure to make the lines as dark as possible so they’ll be easy to see when you’re cutting out the fabric.

2. Cut the felt

Cut the sides of the felt outside the pattern, using scissors or a rotary cutter. Be sure to cut along the lines of the pattern so that your final product is the correct size and shape.

3. Fold the felt

4. Sew the sides

Sew around the edge of the felt, using a sewing machine. If you’re not confident using a sewing machine, you can hand-sew the felt instead. Just be sure to use a strong thread so that the felt doesn’t come undone. You can also add a strong hold glue on the sides. This will help keep the felt together and make it more durable.

There you have it! Your very own felt storage basket! This stylish and sturdy basket is perfect for storing all sorts of things, from blankets and pillows to toys and games. It’s also great for keeping your home tidy and organized. Thanks for following along, and congratulations on your beautiful new basket!
