I know there have been a bunch of these posted - and I made lots of these at Christmas - mostly in sets of threes, but this time I thought I'd just keep on going til it got a little to tricky to manipulate on the machine.  Wink  So here you have it - seven cloth baskets (that I just can't seem to stop making!)  Wink  OH!  And the little felted owl is one that my daughter made me for Valentine's Day.  Smiley


And this one is a bit blurry - but gives you an idea of the colors!  Smiley


Thanks for checking this out!!

Thank you!  And tailte I forgot to answer your question...I think I originally found a tutorial online and I bet there is one on Craftster!  Basically you wrap strips of fabric around lengths of clothesline and zig zag stitch around in circles - until you have the size and shape you want.  Also - this might be helpful...all the tutorials say to use 100% cotton clothesline which I can NEVER find.  I always use a cotton poly blend and it works FINE!  I think they just mean not to use the plastic kind.  Smiley

These are beautiful.  I want to learn how to make them.  That's all I need, another addiction - I can add it to my FQ addiction, fabric overload, etc.   Smiley
