Knotted Rag Rug Baskets!

A few weeks ago, I started a rug using some new fabric mixed with recycled fabric. While making it, I realized that the new fabric worked up stiffer than recycled fabric. It was not as soft. That gave me an idea to try making a nice sized basket instead of a rug.

Since then, I have been on a basket craze!

I developed some general basket instructions including some projects to practice.
Then, I got creative and used the basic basket shape to create some fun mini baskets with lids.

Here's a quick video to show you just some of the endless possibilities. I hope it inspires you.
Toothbrush knotting isn't just for rugs!
