SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • For 8" diameter basket:
  • Dritz® Home 9/32" Cable Cord
  • Dritz® plastic needles
  • 3/4 yard each of 3 fabrics cut into 1" wide bias strips
  • Tape to wrap ends of cord
  • Omnigrid® grid
  • Marked ruler
  • Rotary cutter
  • Mat
  • Scissors

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Trim selvages from fabric. Fold diagonally, lining up selvage to cross grain and cut 1" wide bias strips with rotary cutter.
  2. Wrap the loose end of cable cord with tape. Cut through the tape to create a firm end that won’t untwist.
  3. Create two types of wraps:
    Simple Wrap: Wind fabric at a slight angle around the cord. Each new wrap should overlap the previous wrap.
    Connection Wrap: Thread the fabric end through the needle. Wrap the fabric over the working row and the previous row, passing the needle between rows. Pull fabric snuggly. Hold the folded rows in place with one hand, as you insert the needle between the rows with the other. Pull the fabric snuggly to connect.
  4. Make a coil: Wrap a fabric strip tightly around the cord, starting about 1 1/2" from the end. Wrap towards the end so fabric completely covers tape. Fold end back on itself about 1". Continue to wrap around the doubled cord, covering the end again, and wrapping toward the working cord. Wrap once or twice and fold wrapped cord again. This is the beginning of the coil.
  5. To hold the coil together, next make a connection wrap. Make sure no white cord is visible.
  6. Alternate the simple wraps (1 – 3 at a time), with the connection wraps as you form a coil. Don’t leave too much space between connections, as this will weaken the basket. As the coil increases in size, the number of simple wraps will increase between the connection wraps.
  7. To add fabric strips: Leave a 3" tail with current strip. Place new strip against wrong side of fabric, right sides facing down. Wrap once. Tuck original strip end inside the new one and wrap again to secure.
  8. When base is 4"-5" in diameter, start to pull cord slightly while wrapping. This will force the coil up instead of out. A slight pull with create a soft angle, while a hard pull will create a sharp one. Maintain an even tension as you go to keep basket shape smooth. Sides should come up about 3".
  9. Handles: Do one connection wrap. Then instead of continuing on to a simple wrap pass the fabric strip back over the connector and between the rows again to knot it. Measure and mark a distance of 4" on the cord. Wrap simple wraps around the 4” section. Create another connection and knot it as above. Continue to wrap and connect the top row of cord for about 6" around the basket. Adjust the distance so handles are spaced evenly across from one another. Make another knotted connection. Mark and wrap the next 4” for the second handle. Finish this handle with another knotted connection.
  10. End the basket: Measure about 3" from the second handle. Wrap the cord with tape. Cut the cord diagonally. Wrap the cord to the end, connecting as needed. Make sure the taped end is covered. Tuck fabric under a connection and wrap in reverse a few times, tucking the cut end under another connection to finish.
