another cord basket

cord basket #2This one is a mother’s day present. I used a much narrower stitch and almost twice as much cotton cord as I used on the last basket. I like the look of this stitch width, but making it smaller left much less room for error, and I had to go back and fix a couple spots where I got off track. This time, I remembered to take a picture of the basket all crumpled up, so you can see how bendable it is:

cord basket, crumpledI have some plans for future baskets that include non-round shapes and perhaps a little fabric dye, so come back for more.

    Beautiful! I saw your other tutorial with covering the cord but would love to the a couple photos of the process of making these plain cord baskets. For the plan areas, did you just use white thread or clear?
