Needle & Thread

BASKET MAKING WITH DENIM

Upcycle fabrics into beautiful DIY baskets!

Most crafters will have a fabric stash they can dive into with loads of denim - most fabrics are useable - but personally I love denim for it's hardiness and those lovely tones of blue. Even if you're not a crafter, you'll likely have some denim jeans you've wanted to get rid of that you can use. Simply cut it into strips. 

Other materials you will need

  • A large needle - with a big eye

  • Scissors

  • A measuring tape or ruler (to cut your material into strips)

  • Twine, thread, or yarn

We'll teach you all you need to know to make your own beautiful denim textile baskets in no time!
