I'm currently giving my sewing room a refresh and I've been on the hunt for vintage, timeless pieces, specifically in storage form. I decided to add some handmades to my refresh of the room as well. I wanted to make something pretty that could hold my vintage linens and be passed down as an heirloom eventually, so I created a handmade, weaved basket, using Flower Show Spring. I hand cut and sewed each fabric strip and created a weaved pattern to resemble a basket. I added a vintage battenburg lace doily to the side to give it a vintage look. I added structure to the body by incorporating a layer for pellon foam as well as plastic cross stitch canvas to make it really sturdy. I added leather handles to the side secured with rivets. I really love this make and hope to make more storage vessels for my sewing room.
Here is what I made:
