Google how to make fabric coiled baskets and there are some good tutorials out there.

When you say clothesline do you mean the rope type like venetian blind cord or more like the plastic coated type of clothesline?? I love these and have made a lot of baskets in this sort of coiled shape out of wire, but never something like this and would love to give it a go - thanks for sharing them all they really are beautiful!

Thanks! It is braided cotton clothesline(like a rope). I use the 3/16" size. I buy it in 100 feet packages.

thanks for your response I will have a look for this sort of rope! Do you just use a regular sewing machine?? I'm not sure this would even fit under my sewing machine foot?

To Vic16: Yes, I use a regular sewing machine, with the regular zig-zag foot. It does fit under the foot. I use a denim needle size 100/16 and quilting thread or heavy thread. I set my tension at 6 or 7 and my stitch width at 5 and stitch length at 4.

Correction: I stated that it uses 500 yards of thread. It is more like 350-400 yards.
