I made this smaller one first, just to get the hang of the technique. When I got home I found the perfect plastic button to sit on the coil.
After I made the small basket, I decided to see what it would be like using white thread. Definitely an improvement! This next basket is about twice as big, and was done with a tighter zig zag stitch, which makes it more sturdy.
Look how pretty! I love this color combination.
And, because everyone agrees these would also make suitable hats, a photo of Stella, who graciously offered to model. She's loving this look!
As someone who usually works with paper, I really loved switching it up and getting back to sewing. I'm going to drag my machine out and make a few more of these. I've already started wrapping the rope for my next creation.
