Colourful coiled fabric baskets - for every room in the house!
I have a wonderful store of vintage Liberty prints, patterned and plain cottons, silks and blends donated by friends, bought at sales or collected by my mother, and it is certainly going to take me a while to work my way through them. I can make baskets large or small, shallow or deep and with or without lids.
If you prefer, I can make baskets in your own fabrics - but you have to be prepared to see those pretty baby dresses or your husband's ties cut up to be repurposed! I call these Memories Baskets, and you can also come along and start making your own in one of my workshops.
Coiled fabric baskets are oh so useful for so many things - keeping toiletries, makeup or hair accessories tidy - storing loo rolls or extra soaps in a bathroom - as a home for keys and all those funny little things that seem to accumulate in halls and kitchens (paperclips, rubber bands, the odd conker or a pebble!) - in 'manly colours' for the contents of a chap's pockets! - one with a lid is a perfect way to start collecting together a fledgling sewing kit - a lovely way to send your daughter off to college - fill one with scented soaps and creams as a gift for a special friend - or congratulate a new mum with a basket filled with ‘baby bits’ (soap, lotion, shampoo, cotton buds and balls, for example)
