Fabric Baskets from a Placemat – Easiest Project EVER!

Hello again!  I seem to have a thing for placemats recently.  Today, I am showing you my latest creation and it is Simply THE EASIEST PROJECT EVER!

Placemat basket-17ΩTadaa!!!!  I mean… how cute is that and I literally two of them in less than 10 minutes!  I’m not exaggerating!

Placemat basket-1The best part?  Is this is a perfect project for beginner sewist (like me) and, even those who are masters.  Who doesn’t need an extra Catchall in the kids room, the bathroom or almost anywhere?

Placemat basket-9I have 5 balls of yard, plus some pom poms in this one.

Placemat basket-14I think the pom poms look so cute folded down like this, but you can leave them up and it’s super cute like that as well and gives you even more room.  I made a few others (you can see them in the video).  Endless possiblities.

Oh, did I mention… this was made from a $3.47 Pioneer Woman Placemat at Walmart!  Yep… it’s that easy!

Ready to make one?  Here’s your tutorial!  Have fun and don’t forget to tag me on social media so I can see yours!!

    I’m going to add a handle of some sort and add some Easter iron on cutouts around it to make some Easter Baskets. Im going to see what placemats might work that have a spring theme. Thank you for your wonderful video.
