Remember a few months ago when i showed you how I used my fabric scraps to make a rug for my little Birdie’s bedroom? Well today I’m going to show you my absolute favourite way to use up fabric scraps: braided storage bowls & baskets!
I started making storage bowls and baskets a few years ago when Birdie was a baby. Not only is it a great project to use up scraps and worn out old clothing, but I found it a really fun task to do whilst hanging out with a baby. I have so SO many good memories of sitting on the floor next to Birdie, having a little chat and braiding my scraps while she played. I really like that something I created while she was playing, now holds the toys she plays with!
I have to admit, i actually like this project more than a rug as I only have the desire to make one fabric scrap rug – but I never get tired of making these baskets and bowls, and my kids are always asking me to make them more to organise all their stuff. Win win!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I enjoyed making it! Let me know if you make your own storage bowls and baskets, I would love to see what you create!
