Wool yarn, cotton cording and material, gross-grain ribbon
What was your inspiration?
I love baskets for both their form and function. My passion is creating traditional basketry design in felt using knitting and crochet as methods of sculpting a shape for felting. This apple basket came about from just having fun with some design work- creating a novelty item for the home.
What are you most proud of?
I design my baskets myself and do all the handwork associated with making them as well.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This basket is really a basic crochet pattern with detailing added. It is machine felted as well- not very hard- just a little time consuming.
