Fiesta Flavor

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? I braided strands of hemp cord to lasso the circumference of the basket, stitching it in place with tan upholstery thread. The tight lasso firms the side walls (reduces floppy-flex in larger baskets). I decorated the basket with 4 strands of colorful bubble gums beads and handmade polymer clay buttons. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check out my previous basket projects for instructions how to sew these wonderful baskets. It is a great scrap buster!!!! (Project #122)
