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.

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.

You can find me on my blog, MooshieStitch, Instagram, and on Etsy.
