DIY Woven Fabric Jewelry Basket

 It's been awhile since I've shared a DIY post with you guys, the last one being the Simple Christmas Stockings, so I figured I could share one with you guys now. While I would call this a bit of a break from the Fashion and Beauty posts that's only half true, since this DIY woven fabric basket is perfect for holding makeup, styling tools, and of course jewelry which is what I'm using mine for. 

Making this woven fabric jewelry basket is actually pretty easy and you can make it out of scrap fabric you have since it doesn't take that much to do. It might even be fun to mix in different fabrics and textures. Although it can't hold a bunch of things in it, I keep my most used jewelry in it that can be kept out (of course this means no silver) in the bathroom in this basket.

1.  First is the frame. You can use your own frame (kind of how I did for (my woven scrap rug) but I used a Clover Basket frame, there were two frames in the package  and complete directions for around $7.  

2.  Then using either yarn or fabric, cut strips, I used fabric, about 1" wide.  Sew several strips together and wind in a ball to keep from tangling.

3.  Once you've don that, cut and glue a circular piece of matching or contrasting fabric both to the inside and outside bottoms of the bowl.

4. Weave the strips over and under the rungs of the frame.  

5.  Continue  weaving to the top of the frame pushing down the previous rows to keep the weaving tight and even.  Use binder clips on the top of the frame to keep your rows from slipping off the frame.

6.  Cut a 2" strip long enough to go around the tip of the basket plus 1" for overlap.    Turn under 1/2" on both long edges and 1 short edge.  Place a 1" piece of batting or fleece in the middle of the strip an put it on the top of the frame with equal amounts hanging over the inside and outside of the basket and ending with the folded short edge on top  This keeps the raw edges form showing on the top edge keeping the basket nat looking. Holding this piece down with the binder clips,  Take a matching yarn and sew over the top finding and passing through the holes.

  6. I am such a lost cause at DIY, but I can imagine it looking very pretty on a nightstand.
