Wow, did you have a lot of feedback for me about this basket!
Everybody - and let me say EVERYBODY - had an opinion about what features they wanted on their basket, lol. (see the U-Pick Project reveal post here)
There were two things that practically everyone could agree on.
First, the size. It should fit in our IKEA cubbies.
Well, I’m happy to report that the baskets I’ve made are just that size!
The second thing that you all wanted was handles. Overwhelmingly, you told me that you wanted handles!
But that’s where the agreement stopped. Everyone had a different idea about what the handles should be made of and how they should be attached.
So I went with my gut and used easily sourced materials (this leather is from Joanns, it’s the same kind that I bought for my Strappy Bags with Pockets) plus the easiest way to sew them on.
Of course I totally expect some of you to change it up and make it YOUR way, because that’s what creative people do!
The Woven Basket pattern isn’t ready yet, but it will be soon.
Watch for me to post it in a week (hopefully)!
In the meantime, could you help me think of a better name for it? ‘Woven Basket’ seems so boring to me, but I am having a mental block trying to come up with anything better. If you have any ideas, leave them in the comments.
