Brown Paisley Basket

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.



Easter Baskets

I'm having lots of fun making Easter Baskets.  I have made 3 in different sizes to see which one is in the right proportion.  So far I like this 8" diameter base and 5"high with an inch wide handle.  These 2 coordinating fabrics are nice, but I like more contrast, so I will try again.
