Kraft Monster : Recycled Denim Basket

Recycled Denim Basket


  • Old denims
  • A pair of scissors
  • A sewing machine
  • A container to use as a model for your basket(a bucket or a dustbin)
  1. Cut strips of denim +/- 1" wide and sew theend to end to make a long "ribbon".
  2. You should keep about 20 strips to make the base of the basket (depending on the size you want)I started with strips of fabric by tying a knot at the center.
  3. Tie a knot at one end of your "ribbon" in the center and you start to weave. You pass the ribbon around the strips once above and once below .... 
  4. You weave until you have the size that you desire for the base of your basketMust occasionally pull the strips to adjust weaving. You place the base on your model (bucket, dustbin...). And you continue to weave the sides of you rbasketDepending on the size, you may have to add strips of fabric. 
  5. Once you have completed weaving, you have to finish the edge of the basketYou'll attach the strips of fabric together by tying knots.
  6. Your basket is almost done. You've got to cut the extra strips and fold them inside the basketYou can either sew or glue them.
A super simple Jean Bin!!!
