I almost made Baskets!!
I say almost because they are far from perfect. I have been brainstorming and trying to make baskets for quite some time now. I looked for the material that real baskets are made out of. No luck finding it. I tried material from the fabric store. Couldn't get the baskets to hold their shape. Just recently I decided to try polymer clay. My first experiment was a pleasant surprise. Like I said they are far from perfect, but I know I can make them better with practice. In the meantime, I will be able to use my imperfect baskets as props in my dios.
These were my first two baskets.
My first attempt at grapes.
I have big basket plans for my shop. I've been dreaming of white baby baskets with all the necessesites; Easter baskets with chocolate bunnies and eggs; gift baskets with all kinds of goodies. The list goes on and on. Wish me luck!
