I posted a similar basket a few weeks ago. I finally finished the Flower Girl Basket. I got the basket from Hobby Lobby @ 50% off. I made a fabric lining to match the bridesmaid’s dresses and used grey biased tape to cover the edges and hot glued it into the basket. On the outside I made little flowers using ribbon. I used similar ribbon to wrap around the outside and put the flowers on top. I cut the ribbon, folded it lengthwise and basted near the edges. Basting serves as a way to gather the top thread and then you just manipulate the ribbon to look like a flower. A few hand stitches will hold it until you apply hot glue. I added a pearl in the center of each to add some femininity.
