A new challenge!!

The start of a new year has inspired me to try something new - in the form of a plaited basket.  I've never done these before and I definitely need a lot of practise - but they do look rustic!!

I might point out that all three baskets have a double wall - pull my hair out would describe it well I think!!  But I did enjoy myself.

And last but not least - I made this large flower basket - just for fun!!


  1. I love the new baskets and the flower basket is wonderful for many little bunches of flowers.Perhaps violas ;-)!? Jeannette

  3. Beautiful baskets are making!

  4. I like all the new baskets.

  9. Your plaited baskets are beautiful. I think they are perfect just the way they are.

  10. Hello Lidi,

    I am very excited to find your blog for two reasons. I have been looking for hand made baskets for my miniature kitchen and I have stumbled upon your blog. I have then discovered that you are a fellow Australian!!
    I dont know if I have been looking in the wrong places but there don't seem to be many Australians out there in the mini world.

    Any way I love your blog and love your baskets and will be having a look at your Etsy site.

    I look forward to following your blog.


  11. Your baskets are fantastic. I love these.
    Hugs Maria
