Create a Lovely Twine Basket

Updated on October 22, 2020

In order to make this basket, you'll need a thick twine (jute or sisal) a needle, and thread. Choose a thread colour that matches the twine, so that the thread is not visible.

For the (optional) lining, you'll need a remnant of fabric.

Create the bottom of the basket by turning the string around itself while keeping the bottom of the basket as flat as possible.

Attach the twine to itself using sewing thread and a needle.

Continue to wrap the twine in a spiral, sewing each circle of twine to the previous circle until you reach the desired diameter.

When you arrive at the desired diameter, continue to turn the twine but move upward while maintaining the same diameter.

Continue sewing each circle of twine to the previous one until you reach the desired height.

Cut the twine when you are satisfied with the height. Fasten the final end of twine to prevent fraying.

To create the lid of the basket, start by making a loop that will form the handle.

Then proceed in the same way as for the bottom of the basket by turning the twine around itself.

Continue until the diameter of the lid matches the diameter of the basket so that it completely covers the opening of the basket.

For the lining, cut a circle of fabric with a diameter equal to the inside of the basket plus a little more to allow for sewing.

Cut a strip of fabric for the walls of the basket and allow sufficient width to be able to sew to the bottom and also to be able to fold the top.

Note : calculate the length of the strip by multiplying the inside diameter by 3.14 and add a little more for the final seam. Cut off the excess afterwards.

Notch the circle and the strip of fabric: this means that you make small slits on the edge of the fabric to give it more flexibility and to allow for a curved seam.

Sew the strip along the circle which will form the bottom of the liner.

Then, sew the two ends of the strip along a vertical seam.

Note : make sure that the good side of the fabric ends up inside the basket while the other side is against the twine.

Place the liner in the twine basket and fold the top edge of the fabric outward.

Attach the edge of the liner to the twine by sewing along the edge of the basket.

This pretty basket can be used as a jewelry case for example
