Rag Baskets ~ Farmhouse Style

Happy Monday
Some time ago
I had an idea to trim a few metal and wire baskets with torn fabrics.
As it turns out, it is very much a farmhouse style look
and so fun to do.
A little time consuming with ripping
the fabric and tying around the basket edges,
but a nice result.
Here are a few I created.


Here's one in a shabby wrap style
with my painted cottage roses.

Another using a blue toile flannel fabric
 in a wrap style.

I'm also working on
a rag wreath and
lampshade rag trims
and I hope to share those soon.
The ideas using rag trims could be endless.
It reminds me of many creations
we used to call "Homespun"
from my folk art days,
which also used torn and ripped
fabric scraps.
Styles do come around again
and this idea really has a farmhouse look
using the neutral rags
and shabby using the pastels.
Hope you found some inspiration
using fabric rags.
Till next time.
Have a great week.
