Home Spun Wool Basket

I just added a new basket to my Etsy shop.  I've got a "thing" about black lately!  This basket is finished using Olde Century Paints - if you've never used them - they are wonderful.

For details you can visit my Etsy shop via the link on the right side of this post. 

Thanks for stopping by ~Ann

The basket that I'm giving away is this little peg basket.  The basket is stained with my boiled black walnut dye, wrapped in a piece of torn homespun and accented with a wooden star.

My New Favorite Basket

I know, I always say this whenever I make a new basket, but this is my now favorite!

I made a square market basket, stained it and then wrapped the handle with black rug hooking wool.  I whip stitched the wool around the handle so it's tight and won't slide. 

Close up of the label...

It's now in my Etsy shop.
$40.00 plus shipping
