This basket started life as an experiment and ended up a laundry basket. The large Catalan base was a challenge and the Irish twist up the sides also requires a great deal of concentration! But I’m pretty happy with the result and would do it again… the acid test?!
It’s been a joy to work on this Moses basket with Meghann over the last two days. This was her first basket, she made it beautifully and the mattress fits! I’m very excited that there will be a little person snoozing in this in the not too distant future.
Happy New Year, hopefully it’s still not too late to say that. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. I think I started mine a bit tired and ended it more tired than ever! I always love spending time with friends and family though that’s the real blessing of time off.
My first job for 2019 was to make this Moses basket yesterday. I have a lady coming to the workshop next week to make one for her baby, due in a few months. I’m really excited about this project as I simply adore babies and children of all ages.
I am also in awe of my student and her can do attitude. She hasn’t made a basket before but is undaunted by this project. I’m sure I’ll be posting a photo of her basket next week. Watch this space.
