I handmade this basket by first cutting heavy cotton fabric into 1 inch strips and then wrapping the strips around cotton cording and carefully coiling, shaping and sewing together. I made handles and fastened them with matching purple buttons.. This is a large basket, measuring about 5.5 inches tall(not including the handles) and 10.5 inches wide at the top. This basket can be used for so many things and would look great in just about any room in your home. It is my own original design. It would make a great housewarming, birthday or wedding shower gift. Thanks for taking a look!
