My parents were cleaning out their garage and were going to throw away a plain basket. I knew I could do something with it. Here is what I came up with:
I decided I wanted to add a French graphic. I used the same graphic, from The Graphics Fairy, that I used on my chair makeover.
I started with a scrap piece of drop cloth I had left from other projects. I used the freezer paper transfer method that I used on the table runner I made a few weeks ago. The image transferred much better this time. I sprayed the fabric with hairspray first and then I wet the fabric more than I did last time. I am much happier with the result.
I then frayed all of the edges and stitched a line on either side with embroidery thread.
I adhered it to the basket using double-sided tape.
I added some sunflowers and used it as a centerpiece on my kitchen table.
Adding the graphic turned a plain basket, which was headed for the trash, into something special.
Can't wait to hear what you think.
Have a great weekend!
