Elegant Burlap and Ticking Trio of Caddies

Charity here from Scrappin’ Chaos with an elegant trio of caddies made of wire baskets, wrapped with burlap and ticking. A cluster of lavender wrap roses brighten the neutral color scheme. This trio of baskets performs a balancing act while tastefully organizing supplies.

 Step 1: Remove the handles from all three baskets. Re-shape one of the handles for later use.

 Step 2: Measure the top tier of the basket. Mine was just over 3 inches.
Measure in from the edge of the burlap and pull one strand of the weave.

 Step 3: As you pull on the strand, the burlap will bunch and leave an easy to follow line. Cut along this line.

 Step 4: Weave the strip of burlap through the ribs of the basket, finish with both ends inside.

Step 5: Pin the ends together then use the pulled strand of burlap to stitch them. Trim the ends at an angle so they can not peek over the rim of the basket.

 Step 6: Measure the lower tier of the basket and make a small cut in the ticking at the correct width. Grasp the ticking firmly and rip the fabric. The resulting edge will be slightly curled. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 with the strip of Ticking. I wrapped my ticking in an opposite pattern from my burlap.

 Step 7: Slide the Burlap and Ticking till the seams line up with the basket ribs.

 This will hide the seems quite effectively.

 Step 8: Fold the ticking and burlap away from your working area. Use a straight pin if necessary.

 Step 9: Hook the handle loop of the bottom basket through the base of the side basket. Wrap wire around the edges to stabilize. Use a large gauge of wire for heavier items.

 Step 10: Place the reserved basket handle on the upper baskets. Re-shape the ends as needed.

 Step 11: Wrap and mist the roses.
a. Rip 3 lengths of Ticking 1.5″x 24″.
b. Tie a knot at one end, leaving a 1″ tail.
c. Fold the ticking in half and wrap it once around the knot, turning the tail to the bottom. Stitch the ticking in place.
d. Fold the ticking the opposite way, wrap and stitch again.
e. Tuck the loose end under the last wrap and stitch in place.
f. Mist rose with Amethyst Chalkboard Mist. Leave to dry.

 Step 12: Wrap the 1″ tail at the back of the rose around the rim of the basket. Stitch the tail in place. If the roses slide too much make a couple loose stitches in the burlap at the back of each rose.

To keep the caddy balanced place heavy items in the bottom basket with lighter items of similar weight in the top baskets. Slipping the handle over a wall hook will provide more stability.
 The serenity of the final photo shoot was destroyed with the swipe of a paw. Kitty was VERY unhappy to have been excluded from the process. He threatened to knock the caddy over if he wasn’t given more screen time. Bowing to the wishes of my ginger diva, I have included a photo of his green eyed self.
