Fabulous Friday Recyled Find


Happy Friday! I found a lot of great recycled items this week and was hard choosing just one. I may have to start featuring two at a time! So, here is this weeks find!
Black, White and Red Fabric Coiled Basket
This is a basket made with dishcloth scraps and was made by klosti,based out of Illinois and on Etsy. Here is a clip from the listing: "The great texture of this catchall is created by wrapping a variety of torn red, black and white dish towel fabric strips around cotton clothesline and stitching it by machine. It measures 6 1/2" across the bottom, 8 1/2" across the top and 2 3/4" tall."
Sunny yellow trivets are also available using the same method. Klosti also offers adorable dresses to "dress" up your kitchen also made with dishtowels. What a unique shop! I will not look at dishtowels in the same way again. :)

Awesome basket! I grew up in a home where the interior was black and white with splashes of red! I love your basket!
