What you will need to make it:
- old denims,
- a pair of scissors,
- a sewing machine,
- a container
Cut the strips of the Denim +/- 1″ and then sew them at the end to end to make a long ribbon.
You got to make at least 20 strips to make the bottom of the basket.
Tie a knot at the one end of the ribbon in the middle and start to weave. Pass the ribbon around the strips. Once above, once below ….
Weave until you have your desired size of the base of your basket. You should pull the strips sometime to modify weaving. Put the base on your model (pail, vessel …). What’s more you keep on weaning the sides of your basket. Contingent upon the size, you may need to include some strips of fabric.
Once you have completed weaving, you have to finish the edge of the basket. You’ll attach the strips of fabric together by tying knots.
Your basket is almost done. You’ve got to cut the extra strips and fold them inside the basket. You can either sew or glue them.
Voila, not too bad for used denim!
