I decided to join the lighter blue bands,
so I measured and made three bands
At two high I could see this was working
At three high it was perfect, now what to do at the top level
I was going to fold and sew the uprights in
Too bulky, so I cut each to length and double stitched them
The top is the most important bit, it holds everything together
I chose to use some more of this fabric,
I liked the fact I could use a thin strip
So my basket finished, it holds itself up well
I have just woven the straps, with no plans to stitch them
This is sturdy, and pretty
I don't mind you can see the joins for the horizontal bands
it is after all a working basket
I have pegged the corners for now, I need them to define
next time I get the iron out I will neaten the corners.here.
We popped to town this morning and booked our break for September, we are flying off to Tenerife, a week of rest and sunshine, we do like island holidays. We also very naughty went into BHS, it's the last few days of our local shop, got a few summer tops each, they are so very cheap.
The sport is on TV, it's going to be interesting tonight Tennis final, more cycling and the gymnastic finals.
