Carry All Market Basket

This One of A Kind Basket is my new favorite!  Of course - they are all my favorites at one time or another!  After finishing the basket, I made a liner from Thimbleberries material  that wraps down the side about 2 inches.  The liner is held in place with a drawstring made from the same material.  The material is black with small brown stars in the background and mustard colored stars in the foreground.


I then attached the rusty wire garland to the front that is highlighted by 5 stars  - the largest one in the middle, the other 4 are all the same smaller size. The basket is approximately 8 inches wide, 13 inches long and 7 inches high.  The height to the handle is 12 inches.   Price for this is $55.00 which includes continental US shipping. SOLD - Thank you Mindy! 

Another one of my smaller comb baskets - this one I stained with a watered down black and it almost looks to be a slate blue.  The year 1803 is hand stitched on Irish Linen and the entire piece is stitched to the front of the basket.  $23.00 plus $7.00 shipping in the continental US. 
Both of these baskets can also be found on my Lemon Poppy Seed shop - see the sidebar for a link.
