Tilda style fabric basket


This is a very easy Tilda style fabric basket sewing project. I have spent about 10 min making this fabric basket. I can use it for storing my make up or for crafting supplies. It’s a small and cute basket.

Here is a quick how to or tutorial on this Tilda style fabric basket.

You’ll need three layers of fabric for it. I cut out three equal circles. Two of them were made out of this brown fabric and one I cut out of an old sweater for the filling.

I put two of the brown circles together and sew them leaving a small hole for everting. Then I everted them and inserted the third circle inside the two. I sew them together make these  squares as you may see on the picture.

Then I used a needle and a thread to sew on the edges of the circle and pulled the thread to ruffle up the circle. Finally, I sew on the lace and made a rolled lace flower for decoration.

Recycling: shabby chic can bucket


I really love this cute craft supply shabby chic can bucket. It’s a sort of basket for storing scissors and other crafting tools and supplies. But it has a handle and it looks like a tiny bucket.

The can is upcycled by being decoupaged with cute pink crocheted fabric. Plus I used organic rope to make a handle and the bottom of the can.

As you may see, the bottom of the shabby chic can bucket is decorated with the coiled rope.

The shabby chic can bucket is decorated with vintage book page flowers and with wooden beads and rolled fabric flowers.

You may order this bucket or one in a different design from me in by Etsy RECYCLEDCRAFTING store.

 

Recycled crafts and deoupage ideas: shabby chic craft supply basket


I have to admit that I simply love this craft supply basket. I have lots of ribbons and beads and I urgently needed a basket to store them in. Here is what I made out of an old paint plastic can with a lid.

This was an ugly white plastic one pound can of paint. Here is how the recycling and transformation has take place. It’s a decoupage idea, because first I decoupaged the basket with mild orange napkin. I decoupaged both the lid and the outer walls of the can.

I let it dry and used hot glue gun to wrap it up with a piece of lace. I got this lace just for few cents on our local flea market. The bottom of the shabby chic craft supply basket was not nice and it had the sticking up ends of lace. So, I used some recycled pieces of blue purse to cut out a circle and cover it up.

Then I made tissue roses and leaves and decorated the shabby chic craft supply basket.
