Now, we are going to see the step by step with pictures to let you know how to make this kind of basket. First of all, you need to grab a rope that you are going to line with recycled fabric; depending of the thickness of the cord you will need more or less amount of it, for example in this tutorial we used 6 meters of cord.
Put at the beginning of the rope a drop of glue and line 10 cm of the rope with fabric, then start lining the rope rolling the fabric in spiral.
Every 5 cm you must wrap the fabric passing it through the previous row, in this way:
You have to take the wrapped rope a little higher to give shape to the basket. A simple way is to make a few turns keeping the rope wrapped against the desk and when you have achieved the desired size base, assemble the rope above the last lap.
For this basket we made a base with a diameter of 20 cm.
When you have reached the desired size for the basket you have to cut the rope in a diagonal way, wrap it with fabric and glue it to the basket.
This way you can make a basket without sewing, an advantage is you can combine different colors of fabric because you only have to cut a new fabric strip and glue it above the rope to continue lining it.
