Fabric coil basket

I really enjoyed making this wee basket. All the materials were readily available around the house. I learned the technique from an online course taught by Ruth Woods (@craftschooloz on Instagram). I had a few false starts until I settled down and switched to using materials similar to the videos. I can experiment with weird materials like worn out shock cord from a tent pole later!

Getting started was a bit challenging as you can tell by my uneven stitches in the center. Core is baling twine and the first round of thread is raffia. Then I introduced fabric scraps and a variety of threads from my stash.
