Welcome back to another 12 Months of DIY! Every month, I join with 11 other great Canadian bloggers to bring you great DIY projects, all using the same material. Last month, I used spray paint to make my DIY Pencil Holder. This month, we are using felt; and since I always need more organizational help, I made these chic little DIY felt baskets!

These baskets couldn’t be easier to make! All you need is a few basic items!


Thick felt

Sewing Machine

Scissors or fabric cutter

Two pieces of gray felt

If you’ve been wondering where you can buy some of that premium thick felt, I have the answer! The Kunin Group sells premium felt in a whole load of colours. The quality is SO good. I can’t wait to get my hands on more for future projects!

Since I’m a visual learner, I made this quick video to show you how to make your own basket!

Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more great DIY inspiration!

If you want to make a larger basket, follow the same instructions, but add three inches to the sides for each inch added. For example, my basket in the video is 3″ on all sides and I started with a 9″ x 9″ square. If you want a 4″ basket, start with a 12″ x 12″ square. The rest of the instructions are the same!

I’m so happy with these baskets! All those little things that used to sit on my desk now have a stylish home :)
