    Yesterday I was trying to make a clothesline purse. Well, it was so wonky that it is now a basket! :lol: :lol:

    I'll try again now that I know what I'm doing. :lol:

    How big is it? It looks like the perfect carry basket for some little girl's baby doll.

    Thanks, but I don't like the multi look. I plan to use it as a waste basket for when I need one while watching TV and cutting stuff in the LR.

    I used 100 feet of line. I'm going to get more line today and try again.

    Man, I think that's way cool! I might have to copy. I've made a little rag bowl, but yours is so neat.

    Uh oh .... I bought that pattern too. Is there some secret to getting it non-wonky? Please share your tips, sewnsewer. Pretty please. I thought it would be harder than whet the directions said. It has to be turned and sewn almost straight up as you get to the sides. How do you see what you are doing once you get to that point? I have put it off thinking that looks too hard.

    Please give a gal a hand with your tips!

    I think it's cool. I got some clothes line at the quilt show I went to a while back. I've been afraid to try it. Do you have any pointers for me?

    I didn't buy the pattern a friend showed me how to make it. After you get the bottom width you want, you have to pull the wrapped cord tight to get it to start curling up to form the basket. I do tht for several rows and push the cords together to make sure there isn't a gap between the rows.

    I'm making another one now and it is turning out soooo much better! I think because I am making it smaller (hopefully a purse this time :lol: )

    I really don't have any tips as this is only my 2nd one.

    The only pointer besides what I answered to RedGarnet is to start small for a practice.
