Teal basket

Waste not, want not

As a community, it is becoming popular again to find useful ways for using up left-overs, but don’t just think food – think fabric!

Using up narrow strips of left over fabrics by plaiting them and then sewing them together in a traditional fashion turns them into useful everyday items such as carry baskets or floor rugs.

The photos you can see here show the same item, just at different stages of development.

And it isn’t hard to do!

Bonus: Not only can we say “I made it myself” , it’s very satisfying to create something this way.
