What are you most proud of? INSPIRATION FABRICS: I saw a yellow and orange striped printed cotton fabric. It reminded me of horizontal striped fabric for doll hosiery, you know what I mean? Haven't you seen homemade folk art dolls with striped legs? THEN, I saw a beautiful grass green batik fabric with little dots of rainbow colors--it looked like spring asparagus with water droplets on it--ready to pick. I thought of some yellow and orange polymer clay buttons I made for a summer blouse. I had leftover buttons from that project and knew they'd put some sparkle on this basket. So there you have it. Well, almost . . . I'm not finished making the basket yet, and I pinned a button on--just to audition it. I think I like it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I don't think you can go wrong selecting color combinations for these baskets. And certainly slicing fabric into 1" strips and wrapping it around and around the clothesline rope entirely changes the look of the patterns in a fabric. TIP: Making these baskets is a great way to use up old Christmas fabrics, or out of date patterned fabric that you can't figure out what you were thinking when you bought it, eh?
