Steps To Make A Coiled Fabric Basket
Okay, so now that you have gathered materials for a coiled fabric basket, follow these steps.
Step 1: Cut or tear your material into one-inch strips to begin.
Step 2: Wrap the end of the fabric around the cord’s end.
Step 3: Now begin by wrapping about 3 to 4 inches of cord to ensure you have enough to begin coiling.
Step 4: Coil the cord with care.
Step 5: Set your machine to a broad zigzag stitch with a slightly wider breadth so that both cords are caught when you sew them together. The stitch will hold the fabric-wrapped cables together if you place your presser foot precisely between them.
Step 6: Make sure the first spiral is to the left of your presser foot and resembles a 9. The bowl will be on the outside of your sewing machine as a result of this. Keep wrapping and sewing roughly 4 to 6 inches of the cord at a
Step 7: Continue until the base reaches the desired size. Continue stitching the cloth-wrapped cording with the base tilted up. This will start the process of building the sides.
Step 8: As you sew, continue to support the basket’s sides.
Step 9: Build a loop with your fabric-wrapped cording if you want to make a handle. Then you have to backstitch where the handle will be started. To reattach to the bowl, cut your threads and start zigzagging again.
Step 10: To begin the second handle, mark halfway around your basket and proceed in the same manner. Backstitch, construct a loop, and resume zigzagging.
Step 11: To fix the fabric-wrapped cording on the handles with sewing, add at least one more circle of fabric-covered cording to your basket.
Step 12: Cut your fabric one inch longer than the end of your cording when you’re ready to finish your fabric basket.
Step 13: Continue zigzagging until the basket is complete!
Easy right? Now that you know how to make a coiled fabric basket, it’s your time to try. Go for it.
