Tough Love Baskets

toughlove baskets garter stitch US 50 Needles

I finally got around to finishing the flat stack of baskets I made!  The finishing work with this giant yarn is a fun first for me!  No tools needed…seaming is done with the fingers!  Imagine a darning needle large enough for this stuff?  LOL!

After the side seam is sewn, the bottom edge is cinched up to complete the basket shape!   Instead of weaving ends in, they’re needle felted down!  Poof!  Instant basket!

Two sizes even!  I love them as a set!  They’re already felted so totally machine washable!  Lovely AND Practical!
