Hi Everyone, We have actually been having cold weather in Florida! So at night I am all bundled up relaxing and making mini rag baskets! They are so cute! What do you think?
They are made by wrapping clothesline rope with strips of left over fabrics from other projects. I belong to a quilting group, so the ladies have supplied me with lots of scraps for this purpose!
I like doing hand work at night while watching T.V, and after having painted with watercolor or acrylics most of the day, it is my relaxation therapy! The above photo shows how small they are...just perfect for a few pieces of candy.
At the quilting group, we work all year toward our bazaar, which is held in November. I think these mini baskets will be a good seller, hopefully.
I may also make a few for friends for Easter and tie a little bow on the side and add some Easter sweets.
Or one could use them as little May day baskets with a few tiny flowers placed in them. Whoever received one on her door knob would have to put the flowers in water soon, as of course these can't hold water!
