MooshieStitch Monday: Woven Basket with Flowers

needle weaving

Spring has officially begun here in the Pacific Northwest and to celebrate, I stitched this little woven basket with flowers! 

To start, I drew a small basket outline.

My basket is a simple rectangle but your basket can be any size or shape.

Let's weave the basket....

First the vertical stitches (warp threads).

Then start weaving the horizontal stitches (weft threads).

All finished weaving the bottom portion of the basket.

I stitched the handle of the basket with chain stitch.

My flowers are simple lazy daisies and the leaves are detached chain stitches.

The flowers can be any stitch you like.

I hope you stitch your own basket with flowers! If you do, leave a comment, post your photos in the Flickr group or tag your photo on Instagram with #feelingstitchyig!

Hi! I'm Michelle (aka Mooshie) and I've been stitching since 2007. I own more embroidery hoops than I will ever need and am a borderline hoarder of floss. In my spare time I'm hanging out with my dog Sega, planning my next hike, or trying to convince my husband to draw me embroidery patterns. You can find me on my blog, MooshieStitch and Flickr.
