I mae this felt-basket some time ago.
It was really easy and it looks really nice, I keep my sons toys in it, perfect  for him.



Later on, at christmas-time, I made a felt-basket for my mother with a bottle of glgg in it. It was really appreciated!!

That is really cool!  Did you just buy felt? or did you knit it and then felt it?  Was this something you made up, or did you find it somewhere?
Either way, very awesome!

Thank you! I made it up myself! =)
I bought felt in a hobby-store. It was pretty thin so it's two layers of felt and one layer of plastic to give the basket more stability.
I have made a instructionpage on my website, but it is in swedish, but maybe you will get an idea how to do from teh pictures Smiley

i hit "THIS ROCKS"!!!

thank goodness for your great pictures. i think i can follow pretty well... i just have two questions: what kind of plastic did you use, and what is the "white stuff" you painted onto the felt?

thanks for sharing... i'm going to have to give this a try someday.

Great work.  The tutorial on your blog is super even using just the photos those of us who do not speak/read Swedish can follow it.  Thanks so very much for sharing your work.

the plastic I used was plastic that you can use when you are painting walls, to protect the floor, don't know how to explain it Undecided.

The white stuff is glue, used for textile, paper and wood.
If you have any more questions, bring it on! Wink

thanks. i know the kind of plastic you're talking about.
i'm going to have to bump this project on my "must-do" list.
i like you're idea of presenting a gift in it... that way the "wrapper" doesn't get thrown away!

i'll have to buy some felt this week.

again, thanks for sharing

Thanks for sharing this idea and posting such helpful pics on your website! I have a party to go to on Saturday and wanted to make something easy as part of the gift (it seems like sacrilege if I don't include something handmade).

I think I have some felt kicking around here, and it's worth a try! Instead of plastic, I may cheat and use some fusible interfacing. If I iron a piece onto each piece of felt, it might be enough to give it some shape.

If I manage to get one done in time, I'll post a pic!

I'm glad you like it! Cheesy
If you are going to make a small felt-basket, I don't think you need such hard plastic.
Yeeees post pic if you make one! Smiley
