I have been making little rag baskets for quite some time now and it seems to be an addiction!
Every night while languishing in front of the Telly, I have clothes line rope in lap with strips of fabric to wrap around the rope and sew together. It takes about 30 minutes to make a small basket without even thinking about it, but my hands are busy!
The baskets will be sold this Fall at our church bazaar. There are many, many uses for such small, colorful baskets, one of which is to give as a gift with a little candy inside.
Or almost anything inside. Maybe a piece of jewelry or something unusual, such as some ear plugs for swimming (or the T.V) or some fun pencil erasers. I'm sure you can help me out by telling me what YOU would put in one.
Never lose your thread again!
I even got carried away and made a giant one about 10 or 12 inches long. This one took a little time and I prefer the little ones actually.
But....how many of these do you think we can sell? I have already make about 50! Perhaps I should move on to some other craft project.
