Fabric rope basket

Lately, I´ve been incredibly busy, with life stuff, so I haven’t posted much on my blog. Actually, I´ve been job hunting. To tell the truth, I´ve been doing that for years, because I have really hated my job for years, and it´s quite sad that we have to spend the majority of our lives in a place that we detest. I´m not one to moan and do nothing, I mean I did send my CV to loads of job applications throughout the years, but was never successful until now. I think that perhaps the universe knew that deep down I didn´t believe in myself. So anyway, a few months back I started speaking to my Guides and manifesting what I actually wanted, and believing in myself, and that it wasn´t too late for me, and it happened! I was contacted, asked to go for an interview, and got the job, which I´m starting on Monday. I´ll be responsible for the procurement department, so this is a really big deal for me, and I deserve this, I really do, Manifest Manifest, Manifest, and gratitude of course, grateful for this blessing that has come to me.

Well, if you are wondering what this has to do with a fabric rope basket….Nothing, it has nothing to do with the title of this post, I just had to shout this news to the world 🙂

So let’s get to it… I have wanted to make a fabric rope basket forever, so below is my first one and I totally love it.

I´m sorry I didn´t take a foto of the fabric before cutting it into strips, but it was a beautiful batik fabric, that I had been hoarding for a long time, I only bought half a meter, because it was so expensive and I had no plans for it at the time.

I left a little bit to make a simple table runner because I couldn´t bear to chop it all up, this way the fabric can also make its own statement.

This will definitely not be my first and only rope basket, I plan on making many more because it´s loads of fun and they look awesome!

Thanks for visiting and your patience with all my waffling at the beginning of this post 🙂

    First of all congratulations with your new job. Wishing you all success. The bowl & table runner compliment each other very much. How did you manage the bowl not to be all floppy? Great job, Alice. I love it. 🙏❤️❣️
