I can blame (or rather thank) the clever Mel of onecraftymumma for this latest little project of mine.
I spotted them in my Insta feed and let out a rather audible sigh....I just had to give them a go.
I began with the table mat you can see under the basket...it was a simple start... it allowed me to learn the machine tension and the best way to add the fabric scraps. In fact I made two of these table mats before progressing to the basket.
Wouldn't you know... half way into my basket I ran out of rope....and so did the shop I bought it from. Six weeks before they had more .. they said! I sobbed all the way home.
It arrived about six weeks later (they didn't lie) and I reacquainted myself with my project and finished it off.
Let me assure you.. my rope stash is replenished... no short supplies foreseen in the future and a few more basket ideas await.
Oh and check out these links..
there is so much gorgeous inspiration out there...
