My new craft project!

Over the spring break I busied myself with a new project...basket-making!!
Lemon Drop Basket with Lid
Here are what I've made so far:  the one on the far right was my first attempt, then I made the Easter basket (which may be the prototype for the Easter Basket swap I'm in currently), then I made the "boat" basket for OLIVE and EARL to live in....aren't they just the sweetest little salt and peppers ever...(found at a Nest Repeat store,  and they just had to come home with me) and last the lemon-drop basket with lid...for hubby's lemon drops!

Product DetailsThis is the book that I bought for the instructions.  It's really quite easy to do...the most time consuming part is wrapping the fabric around the clothesline. 


  1. Oh my goodness, I love these! Can I put a link to this post from my blog for the swap gals to see?

  2. Oh how beautiful! You did a great job. I like the coiled baskets but haven't tried it yet. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I bought three copies of "It's a Wrap." I will be making some baskets with a neighbor and my daughter later this spring!!! I read through the book, and it is just wonderful!!!
