I wanted to give Sofia a bit more storage for all of her little things. As usual, I wanted to do it for as little money as possible, and I think free fit the bill! I used old t-shirts from my rag bin to make these cute little braided rag baskets!
First I cut the t-shirts into long strips.
I balled them up and braided them together.
I then used my sewing machine to sew the braid first into a disc shape using a zig-zag stitch.
Then I sewed the braid into walls for the basket.
After the basket was done I used some extra braid and some felt to make the basket into a little animal.
If you'd like a better explanation, check out these two tutorials that I mashed into one rag rug basket:

My little baskets may be a bit lopsided, but I'm happy with the results!
