Coiled Basket with closure prototype

 I love to try new additions for customers.
The request is for a closed basket, similar to a toiletry bag.

I used this lovely black and white fabric to make some prototypes for this lovely customer.  She is so nice to work with!
 I love how this drawstring basket turned out.  I love the top ruffle, it adds so much character to the basket.  This customer suggested thicker strings and I agree!
 I will try this same basket with a velcro closure and post the pictures later.  I love the ruffles, so I will try to include them with the velcro.
Yes, I tried the zipper closure, but I did not like how it looked, it did not add a nice touch to the basket.
I could add a bigger fabric top, so this could be used as a bread basket?
And How about as a yarn/knitting basket?
Oh, I can think of many more uses too!
