Created with an olde world flavor and vintage style, this large tote styled basket has soft cottage chic colors.

Hand coiled in pastel pinks, white, cream, and sage, this basket features a cloth tie cover.

The cover was created from a reclaimed vintage tablecloth. The linen has been cut down, glued in selected spots and generally held in place by an exterior ring of fabric covered cording. I have not glued the linen entirely around the rim. This allows for some slight adjustments, if desired. It can be loosely tied in the center to hide the contents, or left untied to serve as a partial inside lining.

The whole look is shabby chic, soft, floral and feminine.

Measuring overall 22 inches long by 16 inches wide, this basket's generous basin sits 7.5 inches high. Including the handle height, the overall measurement is 17 inches tall.

It would be grand for stashing yarn; would look great as storage in the bedroom or by the bath. It is lovely enough that even if you did not need the storage, it would serve as a great room decor accent piece.

My baskets are made by the coiling method of basketry. Strips of fabric are wrapped around an inner cording as the shape is formed. The inner cording gives these baskets extra sturdiness. Each one is entirely handmade with no machine stitching. Although, on this one, I did machine stitch the vintage linen to alter it to fit the basket.

Each basket is one of a kind and unique.
