I Did It! I Made A Basket!

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I have been trying to make a basket for a long time. I have had many failures!

Thanks to Leslie, Casey and Kris I have finally made my first basket!

1 inch minis tutorial

This tutorial is great! Lots of photos and patterns too! Thank you so much Kris!

I lined my basket following Leslie's basket tutorial.

Here is how Casey made a lid for her sewing basket. I'm going to try this for my basket.

I'm using this Longaberger basket as a reference. They have the most beautiful baskets and they are all handmade!

I still need to make a lid and handles but I could wait to show you my first little basket!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Kathi, it looks really good so far. Don't forget to put a rim around the top before you put the handle and lid on! Have fun!

Wonderful basket, Kathi! I've been wanting to try this one myself.

I really have to try one also as my attempts in basket making have been like yours :D The new one looks fab!

Looks great, Kathi. I've been wanting to try this tutorial, too. And I love Longaberger baskets! My SIL used to sell them so I have quite a few. They are good inspiration. :)

Bravo! I'm in awe-- I can't imagine trying to weave something so tiny! It's looking great!

Katie said...

Awesome!! Can't wait to see it finished!
