This wall basket hangs in my bathroom and holds seasonal flowers.
I needed a basket to hold winter hats and mittens, so I made this rectangular basket with cut out handles made of copper pipe. I have another similar that I use as a magazine basket. I always have a use in mind before I begin a basket. I tend to gravitate toward larger, utilitarian baskets.
This 'shopping basket' is by far the most labor intensive basket. I spent over 8 hours weaving it. It's great for day trips, carrying extra clothing, blankets for picnics, or towels for the beach. I've made 4 and gave away 2 as gifts. I don't expect to make any more...too much work!!
I made a beautiful doll using a pattern by Sherry of Annie's Cupboards. She needed a special home...so I made a round basket that I intended to hang on the wall so my dolly would have a special place to sit.
