This beloved Moses basket was in need of a new border and handles. It has been with the same family for 35 years and the next baby, due soon, will be the 20th baby to sleep in it.
The trouble with a new border is that it’s not as strong as the original and can slip off if picking up heavy things. The grandmother-to-be saw a photo of plaited handles on a cradle and there was our solution!
I made a seven strand rush plait that goes all the way underneath the basket making it safe to pick up even if baby is inside. Hope that it will be used for lots more babies to come 😊
