Paper and Plastic Bottle Baskets

redsemillaroja Paper and Plastic Bottle Baskets

I have here already a lot of tutorials and inspirations for items from plastic bottles and from recycled paper, but I think that this is the first combining both ;-)
Anyway, I found an inspiration where they make baskets from recycled paper and plastic stripes.
They are made similarly to the basket coiling but with different materials.
I find some of these baskets most beautiful!

If that’s not your cup of tea check here whether you find other baskets that you like ;-)

Clothesline Sewing – A Fabric Bowl

CraftStylish Clothesline Sewing-Sew A Fabric Bowl

After having presented clothesline crochet and clothesline knitting I have now ‘clothesline sewing’ ;-)

The point here is to take a cord and at the same time cover it with fabric and coil a basket from the whole thing just as with the ‘real’ basket coiling.

I find the little baskets absolutely cute, but I have a sewing machine so old that it doesn’t even have a zig zag stitch and I won’t do this by hand! ;-)

Gourd Purses

allfreecrafts Gourd Purses

I don’t remember what I was searching for, but then I found the tips and hints for making gourd purses.
Wow!
A little more research showed more gourd crafts at the same site and even a site only dedicated to the subject of making your own gourd purse making your own gourd purse.
There you can find more instructions, for coiled rims from seagrass coiled rims from seagrass or pine needles pine needles e.g.

I find them all most beautiful but (fortunately?!) ;-)) I can’t get no gourds, otherwise I could be tempted to try this, too ;-)

Jewelry for the Garden

Now that spring has come comes the time, too when to embellish the garden. Why not making garden hose baskets garden hose baskets then?

I don’t have a garden and they are too large for a balcony which can only contain two plain chairs or a canvas chair ;-)
Anyhow, I find them interesting.
