Successful and compact placement of every little thing will help save space and not dissolve "dirt" around the house. Most practical for this purpose, various boxes and baskets are suitable, which will not only look cute, but also fit well into the overall interior of the house.

From felt

You will need:

  • felt;
  • scissors;
  • ruler;
  • breadboard knife;
  • pencil.
Step 1

Cut a piece of felt measuring 48 x 43.4 cm. Make 4 rectangular cutouts 12 x 14 cm in the corners.

Step 2

Make cuts 2 cm horizontally from the resulting inner corners (in the photo, the place of the cut is indicated by the purple lines).

Step 3

A template made of paper will serve as an excellent stencil for seams, it is better to make it 2 x 14 cm in size. Mark on the template the width of the strip of fabric that will serve as a "thread" (in the example - 0.7 cm). IF The number of cuts must be even so that the ends of the "thread" are inside the box.

Step 5

Cut four strips out of the fabric that will act as "threads" about 16 cm long. We sew the walls with them, moving from bottom to top.

Step 6

After finishing the seam, fasten the "thread" and cut off the excess. Instead of strips of fabric, you can use leather laces, braid, or other dense material.

From an old sweater

You will need

  • box;
  • sweater;
  • scissors;
  • breadboard knife;
  • glue gun;
  • cotton ropes.

Step 1

Cut the top of the box with a cutter or sharp knife (not scissors).

Step 2

Slip the sweater over the box and mark where it will need to be cut, while leaving a margin of about 5 cm at the top and bottom.

Step 3

Lay the sweater on a flat surface and cut it neatly in a straight line.

Step 4

Put the sweater back on the box and fold the excess fabric (5 cm) to the bottom and glue to the bottom of the box.

Step 5

You can glue the tape to the hem. This will prevent the fabric from shedding and make the basket more tidy.

Image

Step 6

You can use cotton rope for the handles. You can glue them to the fabric only if they serve for beauty, but if you seriously use them, it is better to sew them to the box.
