Introduction: Woven Heart Basket

This is such a sweet craft to make for any occasion, like Easter, Mothers Day, or Christmas. We decided to make ours for Valentines day. This cute basket is made out of felt but you can also use thick paper.

What you need:

Basket Pattern

Felt

Scissors

Tailor’s chalk

Art Knife

cutting mat

Hot glue

Pins

Step 1:

  • Download the pattern
  • Trace around the pattern with chalk on some felt

Step 2:

  • Mark the inside lines
  • Cut the centre lines with an art knife
  • Cut out the oval

Step 3:

Now do the same to the other piece of felt

Step 4:

  • Once you have the two pieces cut out, wipe off the chalk markings with your finger
  • Fold each piece in half and pin to hold the felt together

Step 5:

  • Weave the first purple loop through the first pink loop
  • Now open up the purple loop and thread the pink loop through the purple loop
  • Thread the purple through the pink, and the pink through the purple loop
  • To weave the second row, thread the 1st pink loop through the purple loop, then the purple loop through 2nd pink loop
  • Weave the pink loop through the purple and the purple loop through the pink
  • Follow this process until all the loops have been woven

Step 6:

Take out the pins and open up the basket

Step 7:

  • Make a handle for the basket
  • Glue the handle on the inside of the basket using hot glue

Step 8:

Now you can fill the basket with all sorts of goodies and give this sweet gift to someone special.

seems it should have a way attach the handle without hot glue

Thanks for your comment! I guess weaving the handle into the basket could work, I will test it out.

I have seen these woven hearts and wondered how it was done. The finished project looks more complicated than it really is. Nice instructions! Thank you.

Thanks for your comment. I thought so too, the weaving does look complicated but it is really easy to weave.
