A few days ago we had a chance to spend our week end in Abbotabad a beautiful city of Pakistan i bought this color full date leaf basket from a man there who was selling his stuff on a bicycle i wish i had a picture of his beautifully decorated mobile shop .
the edges of this basket were a bit rough and also very delicate i feared that if one of the dried leaf link gets broken it might damage the knitting of the basket so i decided to cover it with some coordinating colored fabric ,i took two strips of the fabric one for the basket and one for the lid.
spray the fabric strips with water and iron the outer edges to the middle like this.
then covered the raw edge with the help of a needle and thread,
over lap the ending edges of the fabric to give a neat look.
the lid was also done in the same manner.
hot glued a double YOYO flower to the center of the lid and thus added a bit more fun look to my cute basket,hope you like the idea too :)
