Q&A with charlottecansew

clabreau asked:
Can you use mostly any fabric to do this or is it best to use 100% Cotton? And is there a size of rope that is better than another?
charlottecansew answered:
Hello: A fabric that is dyed on both sides works best if you are fussy about not seeing the non printed side, because you will have the non printed side showing just a little on edge of cut plus loose "threads". I've only used cotton and cotton/poly blends. A loose weave/not stable will have fabric unraveling and messy looking and hard to control. This was really a fun project and alternating plain rope and fabric made it a little faster to make. I also dyed the rope, worked out great. So I have some that are lime green and fabric. If you consider dyeing, try "Idye" bright and colorful. Hope this helps, Thanks for asking Any size rope gives you all kinds of effects. But make sure your machine can handle the larger rope.

How do you stop the dye from running when you put your wet clothes in the basket? Is that what you mean by a clothes line basket? Or is it just made of clothesline? How do I find the instructions?
charlottecansew answered:
Hello: This is a small basket, the size you would maybe put candy(wrapped candy) or something similar in it. Or change, keys, or small objects. The rope is clothesline rope, and it comes in several diameters, i prefer the larger size, it works up faster. You can find instructions on YouTube.
