Back in August, I started making a rope basket. You can see the start of it here. I ran out of rope and then never got back to it. But Diane at O’Quilts has been making beautiful rope bowls and she inspired me to get back at it. I finally finished!
Winslow is a great little model. 😄 Making a basket this big does get a bit awkward. I used a pile of books to help support it.
My joins and ending are not particularly graceful.
I think the inside looks cool!
I certainly didn’t need another basket, but I do love it!
Have a great day!
Awww..Thanks for the shout out….Wow…I never made one that big…All the funky endings give it character …Now who inspires who…I am back online ordering more rope. I have such a hard time relaxing…this bowl making is brainless relaxation…and, I love the end result xoxo Since I discovered the bowl making in early December, I have made 20…most of them went to gifts..
What a great basket! Love the hand made touch in the joins. I agree with Yvonne–we can never have too many!
Your basket looks great! Can we ever have enough of them?
It’s beautiful!! Hugs,
I’m new to your blog – thanks to Lori. I certainly enjoyed looking and drooling over your Christmas quilts. I live in Michigan too – up in Gaylord and am active with the Quilts of Valor up here. Where do you live? Merry Christmas!!
That is so cool!!
That’s a perfect basket for going to a farmer’s market, or whatever! I tried to get one going, but couldn’t get it to move under my presser foot. So I gave up, for now. Maybe I’ll try again someday. On the other hand, I can just enjoy looking at yours!
This is a great basket! If the inside looks better, is it possible to turn it inside out? Winslow looked very cute!
