DIY Felt Storage Baskets and Hang-It-All Sorter

Happy Valentine's Day! Okay, I am a little belated, I will admit, but we took off spontaneously to enjoy a couple of days at a different beach. Check out my Instagram feed, if you're curious.

But I do still have a Valentine for you: A DIY instruction for woven felt totes.
All you need for these are some basic sewing supplies and 3 mm thick wool or wool-blend felt.

A place for everything and everything in its place, right? This is a simple project to create just that "place" for those "everythings" that seem to get scattered here and there. I do like a handy basket, don't you? I made these baskets from felt, because I like the look and feel and also because they don't scratch my very favorite coffee table ever.

In English and German!

As a little bonus, I have also included instructions for making these hanging woven felt pockets. I have strung them on a bit of hemp rope for a nice bit of texture.

Follow the links for a PDF file containing both tutorials. Enjoy!

Zum Valentinstag habe ich für Euch nachträglich ein kleines Geschenk: Anleitung für gewebte Sammelkörbe und Hängetaschen aus 3 mm-dickem Wollfilz.

Ordnung muß sein! Oder zumindest den ernsten Versuch, nicht wahr? Ich mag dafür Sammelkörbe für all das, was sich so ansammelt. Diese habe ich aus Wollfilz gewebt, den Wollfilz finde ich gleichermaßen modern und rustikal, und ausserdem kratzen diese nicht so meinen allerliebsten Couchtisch wie so manchen Bastkörbe.

Die Hängetaschen kann frau beispielsweise über dem Schreibtisch, dem Nähtisch oder beim Eingangstür aufhängen, um so dies und das aufzubewahren.

Na dann: Viel Spaß!

Auf Englisch und auf Deutsch!

This might be crazy. But I'm looking for your encinitas pattern in English. Where can I get it!
