Woven Felt Baskets Tutorial

I invite you to weave from the remnants of felt nice and easy basket, which can be folded all sorts of different little things, put things in order and decorate its interior room.

For the manufacture of baskets 14 cm by 14 cm by 10 cm, we will need a strip 19 of felt strips 2 cm wide and 50-57 cm long.
 7 Take the strips and fold them flat, side by side with each other. For convenience, you can fasten the ends of clips or pins.
 Clips easier to use. Hold the ends, as shown in the photo:
 Take the 8 th of felt strip and put it across the first seven, exactly in the middle, drawing turns over or under them.
 Take the next strip and laid with it next to the previous one, weaving in a similar manner. You can use clips for fixing strips as needed.
 Continue weaving:
 As long as the weave of the bottom of the basket 7 and the strips.
 The bottom of the basket is ready, it's time to move on to the walls of the weaving. For this we need the remaining 5 strips. They must be connected in a ring, end to end, without overlap. You can do this with a needle and thread, glue or stapler.

 Take the first ring and begin to weave it into the wall of the basket:
 We continue to proceed to the next wall:
 Similarly, form a ring of the four walls of the basket:

 Take the second ring and weave it in the same way:

 Then the next and all remaining rings:

 When all 5 are interwoven rings, it's time to finish the basket. If left too long tails, they need to be trimmed.

 To close the top of the basket, take the clip and fix them using the tips, alternating inner and outer side:
 The first will fix the ends on the outside. To this end, each of them in turn, inserted into, as shown in the photo:

 That's how it should turn out:
 Now, to turn out the basket on the "wrong side" and all internal tails are external.
 Insert them in the same way as last time.
 To turn out back to the basket. Most of the work behind, left to come up with the decor. I decided to do this with a cotton cord and translated sublimation labels.
 Proffers the cord along the top edge of the basket.
On the sides you can leave the the handle tips of the cord tying a knot.

 Now prepare stickers. To make them, we need to dye sublimation images and glue white felt. Translate will be using a regular household iron.
 We put the picture down sublimation paper on the felt and warm up the iron.
 It is desirable to fix sublimation on the felt with a special thermal adhesive tape or ordinary masking tape.
 Ironed on the paper and a felt construction and image transfer.
 When ready take off tape, remove the paper layer. Picture transferred to.
 Cut stickers along the contour of felt:
 Now we have to paste the image to the basket. To do this, take off the paper backing and just like a regular sticker that is glued to the basket Sticker:
 If you want to make a stronger, you can hem label further along the contour of a hidden seam or set the rivet.
