The finished frail…

The photos show both sides of the frail. I managed to sew all the pieces together yesterday. There are a lot of steps involved with this basket but by taking one at a time it is a very satisfying thing to make.

Preparing materials and plaiting all the pieces took nearly eleven hours. Then trimming and sewing another three and a half hours. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed making it and want to do another.

The basket was made to test the frail recipe for a new book about rush to be published by the Basketmakers’ Association. Not sure when it will be published. Will let you know.
