Do you ever find one of your favorite baskets is coming apart and you just love it too much to throw it away. here is how I fixed mine to help it last a few more years.
So maybe my friends really don't think I'm crazy cause they all know I'm doing something crafty. Like when I say, "I'm tying strips of fabric to a basket." and they say, "HUH?" They really know I'm doing something that makes sense.
See, I have this basket that I love because it's the perfect size but it was cheap and is now broken. I'd thought bout wrapping ribbon but that just didn't work. So, I started tying strips of fabric that were cut with a pinking blade to measure 2" x 12-14" and started tying. As I tied, my basket started gaining new life again.
I tied, and tied and cut strips until I finally started getting the look I wanted. Which even my 8 year old son thought was . .." Awe Mom, that's sooo cute!".
I tied all the way around and spaced them by the vertical rungs in the basket. Then I cut some additional fabric to go with them and "Voila".
