These plant baskets were made with a handwoven piece of fabric for the outer and some sturdy canvas, sourced from the secondhand store, for the lining. The outer woven fabric was made from a mix of secondhand yarns, some of which were swapped at a local craft material swap event. Even the sewing thread used to fix all the parts together is leftover from a previous project.
The long and narrow outer piece was woven on a simple frame loom. The warp is split in two to get the right width and to speed up the work by weaving two different pieces at once. Different patterns may take different amounts of time to be woven, depending on the thickness of the yarn used and the complexity of the pattern. This split method works great with one fast and one intricate pattern, as you can switch inbetween the two for some change. The rest of the basket is assembled using a simple cylindrical pattern on the sewing machine.
These little textured baskets are the perfect size to be used as some decorative outer pots for your plants. The lining is not waterproof, so make sure to use a small dish below your inner pot to catch any excess water. You can also use these little baskets as neat looking storage around your house, for your current knitting project or as a place for some craft supplies.
