    Great job making this tutorial. I loved your first little basket you did and hopefully I can get to this before long. Thank you for sharing!

    I started one but was not happy with the results and stuck it in a drawer. After seeing your tut, I realize what I did wrong. Didn't wrap my fabric close enuf or tight enuf. Also thought you had to wind all the rope before you started stitching into the shape you wanted. Thanks for the info. I'll get my starter out of the drawer and try again.

    Such clear instructions that even I can understand the process. I'm looking forward to more tutes and hope you'll be able to post. I've bookmarked this one, thanks.

    These baskets are really neat - but I was wondering if they are washable and how one would do it. Thanks.

    Also, where did you find the little yellow buckets that you have on your peg board? I would love to have some.
    Hi, I looked and looked for a record of where I got the pegboard and accessories and couldn't find it. Got online and think I found my source... wallpegboard.com Look at the site and find a tab for accessories and you'll see something similar. The pegboard looks like mine (white plastic) but the yellow containers are different in shape. Don't know if they even carry the shape that I have, but it does look like it would function the same. There may be other sites to check as well. Hope this helps! Karen

    You can spot clean them with gentle detergent. If they really need cleaning, the author states you can wash them by hand (not machine), rinse well, and before you let them air dry reshape them. Because this is raw-edged finished washing vigorously is just not a good idea.

    bookmarked!

    thanks again for the tute! i'd given up on my first try. you've encouraged me to keep going, or just use it for a hot pad as is.

    btw, is the turquoise blue fabric you used to coil by any chance the cheetah girl fabric? since my daughter is past that phase, i used a similar looking fabric to start my coil basket

    I have no idea...I got all this fabric this past week at WalMart. Since I had not done such a large basket I didn't want to spend a lot of money on material (and I don't have much stash). I got this mainly because I thought all the colors went so well together! Good luck on giving it a try again...I think it's worth the effort. Just take your time!

    Thank you for the compliment. I'm glad the tutorial looks like it might be beneficial. I have found that making these baskets has unleashed a new side of being creative for me...labor intensive but fun! Hope it will be the same for you.
