This DIY scalloped basket by Shabby Fabrics on YouTube is such a cute project with many uses. You can use any type of fabric based on the occasion or theme of the project. I love how Shabby Fabrics always has detailed instructions with tips shared throughout the tutorial. You can buy a kit or make your own by watching the video. I know Shabby Fabrics have a free download page on their website if you choose to make any of these projects with your own fabrics. Honestly, I prefer using my own fabrics, but buying the kit saves a lot of time and effort.
