Easter Baskets

A couple of months ago I came across this tutorial for how to make fabric bowls via Linda's great blog. As soon as I knocked out a few WIP's I got started, but alas all the colors I used ended up looking to "Eastery" so a made an Easter basket!

I used the basic bowl tutorial for the base and then made a handle out of some remaining cording working back and forth instead of in a spiral. I left button sized holes in the end of each handle big enough to squeeze a button through.
On my next one I think I will be making the handle with 6 cording sections instead of just 4 and I may even make the handle shorter. While this project was time consuming it was really a lot of fun, repetitive yet gratifying.
