Do you love the name I gave this basket? I really didn't know what to call it! I got a bee in my bonnet last year and wanted to make a little basket. I had no pattern and really no idea how I was going to construct what I had imagined, but with a little time and patience it came together. My daughter ended up by giving it to her best friend with some Easter grass and candy inside and I tackily asked her mother if they still had it and if so, could I borrow it to "remember" how I made it. It's a little wrinkled; her daughter had it stuffed somewhere, but I ironed it out a bit.
Each strip was made by creating a tube of fabric and then pressing each piece flat. My sweet sister who was over helped me turn out all of the pieces. Once that was done I got busy weaving each piece and figuring out how to construct it.
You can see the inside here and see how it was made a little bit better. If anyone is interested in a tutorial, leave a comment and I will get one put together. I am hoping to get some made this year, too! Thanks for stopping by!
