I wrapped clothesline in 2 different dark brown fabrics and have sewn an oval shape for the base. After I finished the base, I then wrapped the clothesline with this gorgeous deep coffee brown paisley fabric. I'm about to turn the sides up into the basket, but I have not decided on the basket shape yet. This is the fun part, shaping it, ahhh, I have lots of ideas, now I have to choose one!
I had lots of fun making this basket, the contrasts are great.
