What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that the vision I had when picking the two colors of fabric, actually turned into a beautiful basket that got a lot of attention when people visited my home!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't become discouraged and frustrated when trying to wrap fabric around cord. This will take patience and time. Also choose a solid color for basket when just starting out.

After glueing all of the fabric onto the cord, sew by coiling it, turning as you go. Sorry, I was having trouble getting the reply correct!

@VicMansfield: The strips can be 1/2 inch strips because you are winding them in a slanted fashion around the rope. Just like a peppermint stick look.
