A New Basket

..... which will shortly be listed in my Etsy shop. The body of the basket is crocheted from strips of recycled fabric cut from two kids Tshirts (the base), one shirt (the cream stripes in the 'wall' of the basket) and a new fabric remnant, originally bought for fancy dress (the rust colour in the basket wall). The lining and handles are stitched from a new, pure cotton, light weight, furnishing fabric. A small circle of felt neatens the centre of the lining.

Pictured here with a current project of mine ( I use mine as work baskets), this basket has a diameter of about 32 cm and a depth of about 18 cm, and it could have a variety of uses.

The blanket pictured as work in progress will be completed and offered for sale too! Whilst trying to sleep last night, I was planning many other items, including trinket bowls for jewellery/keys etc, storage canisters with drawstring tops, larger bowls - possibly for fruit etc ............
