Felt Baskets

The other day I went to a local fabric shop and found some printed craft felt (by Camelot Fabrics). You can buy them adhesive or not.

It’s the first time I was seeing printed felt. I love fabric trays of all sorts and I thought it would be great to make some with those. So, I bought a few and when I came back home I looked on Pinterest for some ideas. Just look for “felt basket” (or bowl, box, tray, organizer) on Pinterest and you’ll find plenty of ideas. I found my inspiration in the felt organizers from Skandinavious Etsy shop.

I first started by making some baskets for my sons for them to store their little treasures. I made a paper template and started cutting and assembling them. With the adhesive felts, it was easy to use a different color inside.

This is a fun no-sew project. After that, I made my-self some smaller trays to put on my desk with 2 solid color felt pieces instead.

I love those ones, but I think I prefer the wool felt and leather versions from the Skandinavious Etsy shop. I think her boxes really standout by her use of quality material. I might decide to order 1 or 2 for Christmas gifts.
