Making A Faux Wicker Basket For Your Creations

I am really looking forward to this hangout with you guys! there is glue involved so if nothing else it is going to be hilarious! 

This live hangout will be hosted from the Mum's Makery Facebook Group

DATE : Saturday 16th May 2020 @ 11:30am (UK Time)

I will be demonstrating how to make a wonderful little Faux Wicker Basket. 

Please be aware that the one I make will look different to the one in the image as it was made with different type of string. 

Although you are most welcome to make along with me on the day .. I will have materials prepared in advance to speed up the creation process. So while everything will be explained, some steps will be shown briefly before I Blue Peter it with a "here is one I made earlier!"

During the hangout I will try to answer questions while not sticking myself to the thing I am making lol. 

I am working on creating a pattern for the basket shape which is available HERE TO DOWNLOAD
