Introduction: How to Weave Toilet Paper Rolls
Toilet paper rolls make a great woven basket.
I learned this technique from Indonesian recycled crafts where plastic coffee sachet are used for the links. I found out that toilet paper/ paper towel cardboards easily available.
Step 1: Make the Links
Cut up toilet paper cardboards 1.5 cm (5/8 in ) wide. Make a pin wheel by wrapping around one each other like so.
Step 2: Weaving Corners
Add 2 links to each foot to turn the corners.
Step 3: Filling Up Rows
We get to fill up the rows by adding one link then wrap the main link around the next one and continue weaving.
Step 4: Keep Weaving As Vertically
Step 5: Sew (optional) and Add Handle Bar
You can run needle and thread through the top rows to secure the opening. I added recycled brown paper bag ( grocery bag) handle in this picture.
I will add more post to make tote bag or bigger bag with similar technique.
