A woven felted wool basket makes an incredibly stylish storage solution for your home. Now it’s easy to make your own with my new video and pattern that has been released on Craftsy. This is a wonderful weekend project! If you want to make your own basket just like this you can find a kit to make the basket HERE
The changing of the seasons always gets me in the mood to work with materials that feel warm and cozy. My new Woven Felted Wool Basket pattern uses the gorgeous bulky Tough Love Felted Wool that just exudes warmth. These baskets are so simple to make and the leather handles add just the right finishing touch! This is the perfect basket for storing your magazines or your latest craft project.
