Crochet Basket Tutorial to Improve Stability
Hey friend! Just coming to you today with a tip for how to take your baskets use some canvas like a plastic canvas and a pair of scissors and a plain old tapestry needle and vastly improve the quality and usability of your crochet baskets! We’re going to take a piece of plastic canvas and we’re going to cut it to be just a tad shorter than the basket that we want it to fit into and then we’re going to curl it up and slip it right inside the basket. Then we’ll take a tapestry needle and some yarn and sew the canvas to the basket. That’s going to give us a nice stiff wall around the basket to help it keep it’s shape and actually be able to hold things like hooks and pencils and such!
In the video I show you 2 different ways to go about sewing the canvas to the basket so you can choose what you like best. I’d love it if you would take a minute to leave a comment on the video and let me know which method is your favorite!
In just about 6 minutes, you will be on your way to significantly improving your crochet life! Just grab a hook and some yarn and watch the video tutorial below!
