My most recent basket is playing with black and white. I like them together and they can complement any decor.
I bought some pretty black and white fabric and cut it into strips.
You never know how the fabric will work up when cut, so I was pleased that it looked nice when wound around the clothesline.
Sometimes I leave the rim unfinished, but this time I wrapped it with the same fabric. This involves a lot of hand stitching and is not my favorite thing, but I wanted this basket to have a finished look.
In keeping with that desire, I added a few embellishments. Black and white, of course!
