One of the most beautiful uses for recycled fabric strips is making baskets you can use at home, because they are really cute and useful. To this fact, we can add that these baskets are easily made using a sewing machine. That is an advantage, because you can make them fast, design them at your pleasure and create a perfect gift.
And if you don’t have a sewing machine, you can sew them by hand.
Fabric baskets with a sewing machine
With this technique you can make a basket using a zig-zag stitch. The procedure is simple: a string is lined with strip of fabric, sewn into the machine and then wound upon itself into the shape, stitching on the basket with zig-zag stitch.
Surely the work will be more complicated as we move through the seam, so you have to tilt a little the basket and continue sewing, and then forming the handles wrapping the lined string.
This is a really beautiful use for T-Shirt yarn strips. Of course, you must know how to sew in a machine or by hand to get a good finish.
