If you’ve been around for a while, you know how much we love a DIY basket! We have made a few woven baskets using paper as well as ribbon. But this is the first time we’ve created a woven felt basket — one with handles and one without.

Since the cutting needs to be precise, you will need to cut this project by hand with your craft scissors. When you’re ready to get started, just download the template and tutorial below.

Be-weave in your DIY skills

Meagan crafted this woven felt basket specifically for the felt foods we’ve created. This way, your little one can easily carry around their felt fruits, breads, and more. Another option is to use these small baskets to organize toys. Or you could even use them as home decor if you’d like!

Though we like for our baskets to be neutral, you can always make them in whatever felt colors you want. The colors we use are linked below, or you can explore our felt selection for more ideas.

Skill level: Intermediate due to the precise cutting and placement that’s required to make sure your basket is straight.
