Decorative fabric baskets

Ever so practical and easy to decorate

Whether you’re a craft lover, painter, knitter or sewing enthusiast, do you find that you gradually accumulate materials until eventually everything needs to be properly sorted and stored? If so, fabric baskets in various sizes (also known as utensilos) are a really practical way of keeping everything organised. Why not sew a fabric box yourself and personalise it with your own designs using the textile markers from edding. We chose to decorate ours with the bold and simple letters D-I-Y. edding textile markers and textile pens are ideal for all manner of light-coloured fabrics, including cotton, silk and linen. You can choose from a range of 20 colours in two stroke widths, including neon shades for a particularly vibrant effect. What’s more, they’re really practical for beginners and advanced crafters alike: with each of the edding textile sets – blues/greens, reds or assorted base colours – you have five perfectly colour-coordinated shades at your fingertips. After painting, the next step is to iron the design to make it wash-resistant up to 60°C.
