tutorial diy felt basket rectangular 32 Hi there! With this tutorial I’d like to show you how to make a felt basket like this one that you can see in the image. I realized this project beacuse I needed somethigs for tidy up my bathroom (a basket for brushes, combs, hair clips and hair ties). If you are interested in other models, you can read my tutorials how to make a diy felt pen holder or how to make a diy felt jewelry case.

To realize this project you will need:
– quite heavy felt ( 50 x 50 cm);
– needle and threads;
– chalk, scissors and pins;
– for decorations I used hot glue and other felt, but you can do like you wish at best, for example using buttons, beads or fabrics!

Now we are ready to start! Cut felt into rectangular shape 25 x 35 cm. My suggestion is to use heavy felt, in this way will be easier for the basket keeping the shape. Drawing a frame about 5 cm with chalk, in this way you’ll have a central rectangle about 20 x 30 cm.

Fold the felt along the chalk line and create corners: you can choose to fold them internally or externally (like mine).

Sew the corners as you can see in the image.
