A few customers have asked me to make a basket using denim.
So here is a denim prototype.
Denim is a heavy weight cotton and thus more bulky to work with. It is a very loose woven cotton and the fray is more than usual. I love this cute denim with the embroidered flowers, the white fray adds a nice contrast.
I love this denim basket!
I think the white fray adds a fun texture, but if you prefer, trim all the loose threads.
I will try a lighter weight denim next, so I can compare the amount of fray. I think I should try a dyed denim too, so the fray would be blue.
This basket was made using denim purchased at a fabric store, not an old pair of jeans. Most jeans' seams have serged edges to prevent fray, but I like the fray, since it adds alot of texture to my baskets.
Thanks for visiting!
