You can tell by the colors of this basket that it was from the 90’s. I refused to pay $$ for a new one that would just get outdated again, so, I made this one over with supplies I already had!
(the closure was even broken on this, that’s why the off color ribbon)
make-over sewing basket:
ended up using purple fabric paint (in the tube) to paint over the green striped wood.
Fixed the closure with a button & a jewelry necklace closure. Kinda tricky, but I’m the only one that uses it, so its ok!
