I've been making some dolls to put on etsy, this is my first Halloween girl. They're fun to work on, and it's a good way to use some of the lace, old buttons & etc. that I've collected over the years.
Isn't this a great basket? It's hard to tell from the photo, but it's big enough to hold a large watermelon. It was hand woven in Ghana, West Africa of elephant grass & the leather on it is made from goat hides. They sell them at the blueberry farm that we visited today. They have a website.
I saw one of those magazines the other day that have artist's studios & one of the women had a bunch of these baskets under a table, full of fabric pieces. Probably a good idea, actually, better than keeping them in plastic bins where the fabric can't breathe.
Hope you're having a good weekend, too!
