In my mind, there is nothing better than a summer salad made from freshly picked greens from my garden. This garden basket tote has been hand coiled with all those greens in mind...everything from bright celery to dill and sage... to dark spinach.

The tote styled, oval basket measures 14.5 inches long by 9 inches wide. Its basin sits 4.5 inches tall. The overhead handle has been crafted using a recycled white belt as its core. It was then embellished with leafy white and green lace trim and a "tossed" collection of assorted beads....mostly in greens to compliment the basket's large variety of green shades.

I have photographed the basket with some freshly picked dill and leaf lettuce so you can more easily gauge the size and colors.

A generous medium size, this would make a thoughtful gift to yourself or a friend. Perfect as a housewarming or birthday offering, it can be filled with soaps or other personalized treats for the ultimate in gift giving!
Or try filling it with all the fixings for a great salad...homemade croutons, dressing, grated cheese, imported black olives or pepperoni, a loaf of bread....well, you get the idea. It is even large enough to include a bottle of wine.

My baskets are made by the coiling method of basketry. Strips of fabric (both new and recycled) are wrapped around an inner cording as the shape is formed. The inner cording makes these baskets sturdier than other felted,fabric or crocheted items.
Each one is entirely handmade with no machine stitching.
Each one is unique.
