Here is another idea if you have plenty of scraps of material that you want to use instead of throwing away – make a basket. All you have to buy additionally if you don’t have it at home, is rope. I used cotton rope that is about 6mm thick, but you can decide.
Gather all the material that you have available, and then cut them into strips of similar size. Then the work starts! For the complete tutorial please visit this website: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/33825/how-to-sew-a-fabric-bowl/page/all
Just a hint, if some of the material you are using frays a lot, just fold over the edge before twirling it, this will help. The more rope you use, the bigger your basket will get. My basket came out quite big, approximately 50cm high, so I am able to store all my bags inside it!
