Antique linen storage basket - lilac florals
I made this pretty storage basket today using my pretty new floral design. It is made with beautiful antique linen which gives it such lovely texture. I decorated the basket with machine appliqued flowers and lined it with a Japanese linen cotton mix in a natural colour. I took the shape of the basket from my Japanese Organisers book ISBN 978-4277-431170 but the dimensions are my own. I wanted it to be bigger than the book s as they are quite small. It is great for sotring anything - wool, sewing projects, towels, toys, potatoes and so much more. More images on flickr, going on Etsy.
